Jennifer Love Hewitt, myself, Jennifer Love Hewitt and myself. Currently fixated on saving Canadian music (going well).
Mind-altering work of art:
Billy Idol "Rebel Yell." It got me through high school.
Most memorable or inspirational gig and why?
Lately, the Planet: Fame release party in Toronto. I broke off a chunk of Robin Black and rammed it up the crowd's collective pee-hole. And they loved it!
What has been your career high and low?
I'm high right now.
What should everyone shut up about?
Shutting up. People should say what they want.
I would drop everything to play a benefit for:
AIDS research. This whole AIDS thing is a drag.
What trait do you like and dislike most about yourself?
My extreme confidence. It has helped me accomplish great things, and gotten me in deep shit.
What would make you kick someone out of your band and/or bed, and have you?
Too much body hair. Unwillingness to kiss my ass. I've never had to kick someone out of either, because you can shave and everyone kisses my ass.
When I think of Canada I think:
Long drives, hot babes, Rita MacNeil, Robin Fucking Black
What is your vital daily ritual?
At least one Bloody Caesar.
How do you spoil yourself?
I stare at myself in the mirror naked. Mmmm!

If you had a superpower, what would it be?
Man of steel.
What makes you want to take it off and get it on?
Shellfish. Big boobs. Small boobs. Boobs.
Music and sex: Is there a difference? Why?
Very similar. They both come from the groin. Both are ultimate releases. When fans hear our music, they feel like they're having sex.
Strangest brush with celebrity:
I met Tom Jones. He told me to leave room for him at the top. I kissed him.
Who would be your ideal dinner guest, living or dead, and what would you serve them?
Kylie Minogue. My cock!

My mom is very proud of me. She just wishes I was less vulgar.
