Zitat des Tages von Norah Jones:
I love eggs so much. I feel like my day hasn't started until I've had eggs. I'm probably gonna die from high cholesterol!
Maybe I'm genetically more inclined to music - but the music I make is so far removed from Indian classical music. I grew up in Texas!
I'm not going to play lead guitar in a concert hall full of people, because I'm going to mess up a lot.
I'm a musician because I love it and it's supposed to be fun.
You know, when you have a father who's pretty well known but you don't see him, the last thing you want to do is start talking about him all the time to people.
I make a good fried chicken.
I don't want to be the next big anything. I just want to play for people and that's it.
I could do without 'cool' publications calling me 'mom jazz.' But I laughed all the way to the bank, baby.
When I moved to New York, I fell head over heels back into country music and probably 'cause I missed something about Texas.
I don't actually have a lot of discipline. I've worked hard at music. But I feel like you know, I felt like kind of natural at it. I always had a knack for it.
I hope there are some audiophiles still out there.
I'd done recordings, little demos, since I was in college, which I used to get gigs. But I never thought I'd have a record label.
For me, there's a fine line between being a cheeseball and being a good performer.
I don't want to be singing my diary.
God bless Ray Charles. It was such an honor to meet him and sing with him and actually just to watch him sing from just two feet away.
The coolest thing I've gotten to do in the past few years is guest star on Sesame Street.
I didn't think it was fair to my music to label me as the daughter of somebody - I didn't think it described me very well and I didn't think it had anything to do with my music.
I think it's important for people who love music to retain physical CDs or even vinyl, because it sounds so great and so much warmer than music over the internet.
My first two records are so simply constructed. The reason isn't because I wanted to make simple music. It's because I don't really have the chops.
A lot of my music is slow and subtle. The subtly is what I enjoy about making music.
I think singing comes most naturally for me. Because it's part of your body - it's a natural thing. You can practice all you want but it's part of your body.
I love my dad and we have a very good relationship now.
Making records is fun. It's not some big statement. You're allowed to make mistakes.
A song will keep going round in my brain and keep me awake.
I used to be a jazz snob, believe it or not. I sort of turned my nose up at anything more commercial.
There are absolutely no problems between me, my dad and my sister. Obviously I grew up with just my mum, but my relationship with my dad is just fine.
People will read into what you say no matter what, so it doesn't matter to me.
I should have a therapist. I have plenty to therapise about.
I always try to do something different. I don't think I've made the same record over and over.
There was an enormous amount of pressure when my first album took off, and I struggled with the speed of everything and the exhaustion from the constant touring.
Designers send me clothes I wouldn't feel comfortable wearing.
It's fun to peek into other people's worlds and see how they go about doing things.
I'm always going to do that - record and make music.
I've been told the weirdest things: 'Yeah, I love taking a bath to your music!' or 'I gave birth to my daughter while listening to your music.'
The pop world is cool, but I never really thought of myself as part of it or wanting to be a part of it because I'm on a label that's not really like that. They're not trying to dress me up, they're not trying to do things like that. I feel like I'm sort of separate from that, actually.
My mom and I have always been very close. She is my best friend. She had to make a lot of sacrifices early on in my life to make sure I got to do what I wanted to do.
