- On Britney: "I dated Britney half my life, but I don't know that person anymore. I'm not sure I knew her before. If I was writing an article about her, I would not be able to fight the urge to write every dirty thing about her."
- When asked about American Idol: "I have a strange relationship with that show. I despise it, and yet I'm completely fascinated. The guy who won - people think he looks so normal, he's so sweet, and he's so earnest, but he can't carry a tune in a bucket. Do you realize how much pressure it is to put on somebody all of a sudden? If he has any skeletons whatsoever; if, God forbid, he's gay, and all these people in Mississippi who voted for him are like, 'Oh my God, I voted for a queer!' It's just too much pressure. But that's what we do. The American dream is to be young, rich and famous."
- Why JT can't find a reason to censor his behavior: "I remember the first time it was reported I smoked pot. I was like, y'all don't? That's why I sort of respect Kate Moss. I think you lose once you start trying to analyze what people like. So I'm like, 'I hope you like how I live, but if you don't, you don't.'"
- JT tries to evoke the early 80's for his new album: "I wanted it to look to a time when everything was really sexy. Maybe everybody was coked up, but who cares? It was hot. It was all about sex."
JT's Future Sex/Love Sounds doesn't come out until September 12th, but we're getting a peak at what the album cover will look like. Of course it's fabulous. He sat down with Fashion Rocks magazine to chat about Britney, AI, drugs and of course his new album. Here are some highlights:
Someone sounds like he has sex on the brain when he made this last album. Check out more of JT in Fashion Rocks so
