I guess what I'm saying is you can find pleasures right within your grasp that are just as satisfying [as stardom]. You don't have to be a pop sensation or anything, you know? It's just that whole mentality--people think they won't be happy until they get this or that, but once they get it, it doesn't make them any happier.
The only way they'll be happy is to find it in themselves. People work all their lives to make a certain amount of money, they sort of put their real life on hold until they get to this certain place, and when they get there, life's over [laughs]. You've got to live in the moment, 'cause that's all we have.
