When I did interviews or whatever, people - guys would be so nervous. Like they thought I was going to, you know, just I don’t know, jump on them or something. And I think the image was really pretty hard to live up to at some point, especially with my sense of humor and, at the time, my kind of quirky sense of mocking. It just didn’t go together. So I had to really be calm when I did interviews and not, you know, clown around too much.
