Best quote

“I don’t think most of my fans want me to get married, I’m sure I still have some female fans that want me to be single.  I don’t believe in the institution of marriage. Marriage is not an institution, I believe, especially in this our generation. Marriage is a piece of paper; you get married mostly for selfish reasons and to be accepted by society
