I want a daughter no matter what.
I was brought up in a very ordinary family, in fact, a worker's family. Both my father and mother were ordinary citizens.
We didn't have our online service developed. We had never shipped a console game before as a company. So we were developing a lot of new competencies as a company and assembling a new team.
Portraying Pocahontas' story well was important to me because she was a real person and these were real events in her life.
Sir Rosevelt is a little more of a persona, and we dress up, three-piece Tom Ford suits, and it's a little more refined, visually.
In some of the states in the U.S., homosexuality remains a felony.
I love coming to Detroit. First getting to be buddies with Kid Rock in the beginning, and him being really great to us, showing us love, the love of the city. I feel like it's our city now, too.
Be obscure clearly.
As a successful romantic novelist – one of my publishers is Mills & Boon – I create the sort of male heroes that no woman could fail to adore and few real men could hope to emulate.
I am the wealthiest man, not just in Europe, but in the whole world. I collect emotions. I am wealthy in that the people of Russia have twice entrusted me with the leadership of a great nation such as Russia – I believe that is my greatest wealth.
I never intended on starting a charity; I never intended on cancer, health, and wellness becoming my life.
I was raised to be very wary of the police. I was raised to stay away from them unless you absolutely have to. Because they're dangerous.
Conferences at the top level are always courteous. Name-calling is left to the foreign ministers.
The music business is a crazy game, especially for somebody like me who is really a purist about the art. Trying to balance the pressures of commercialism, it's a tightrope. It's a fine line between sticking to your guns and insanity.
I want to continuously instigate, whatever it may be.
