I think that his ability to reach out to people was because of his sincerity in what he was doing. And the truth in which he did it in. He had no ulterior motive. He wasn't trying to be something. He wasn't into gimmicks. He wasn't trying to be a star. He was trying to express himself.
I just got into the Beatles a couple of years ago, you know, I like it.
I don't think we should do anything that should make the people hate the American people more.
I've opened up more by traveling outside Jamaica. It helps me to grow as a person to be outside of my element; to be on my own in a strange place meeting people.
My dream is to live a good life and be loving, be close to God and be a good human being and bring peace to people.
Religion has become so many different things. Religion is an economic thing for some people. Religion is a gun.
The political system is not for the people. The people are secondary to the economy. It's about what generates money, not about what benefits the people.
When people come to Jamaica, we don't want them to think about the problems of Jamaica. So let them come be in their paradise.
I prefer the country life. I live in Kingston, but there is lots of trees.
There's more to life than physical and material.
URGE is a grassroots charity. We organized to get some incubators to give to the hospital for the kids. We donate money to orphanages.
If religion had a good purpose, then man would have created something great. But we're man: we mess up everything. We mess up nature. We mess up God. We take what is given to us and make it into what we think it should be.
I rented a house, recorded the stuff in a house. Just took my time 'cuz sometimes it's just rush, rush, rush. I just wanna live and play music.
Last time I was in Jamaica I financed a teacher to teach in an orphanage.
No matter the bad things that happened in past time, let's try to live the best we can now.
Working on my own gave me a chance to take my time and experiment a lot.
I would look at a dog and when our eyes met, I realized that the dog and all creatures are my family. They're like you and me.
I left Jamaica for a while, because as an artist I need to experience different things, see the world, have different energies. Living in one place is not good for me.
I think Americans should have a policy of love. That should be the foreign policy, love. Export Love.
I'm always in love.
Love is more than one thing.
There is a physical relationship with a woman that you don't have with anybody else, but that's not about love. Love is a spiritual thing.
I think my type of personality has all music inside of it, so I am full of music, without even knowing it, without even learning it, without even hearing it.
It's that kind of in-born music thing - I could pick up the guitar and play something. It's not something I consciously do.
The music I do is food... that will be your dinner.
