I’ve had these difficulties lately with the press. This guy almost hit me in the face with a camera in New York the other day. And I find that it’s very, very difficult now to navigate those waters. Everybody I’ve ever worked with — 99.9 percent of the time, I’ve had a successful or very agreeable experience with. And there are these legit press opportunities that you do and then there’s what I call the illegitimate press and in the age of the Internet, they’re very strong and they’re very omnipresent and dealing with them, becomes — and what I’m learning in this last go-round — is that my desire to live a normal life — to have an apartment in New York and to walk out the door like any other New Yorker does and just live my life — it sometimes, it’s not possible.
