Grace Jones said this to me when I met her. I washed her feet, and I looked up at her and she said, ‘No matter what you do in your life, don’t you ever let anybody take your creative people away from you.’ And what my creative friends always remind me of is they say, ‘Only value the opinion of those that you respect. And anyone that you don’t respect, pay no mind to their opinion about you or anything else.’ And that’s how I live my life. If I worried about everything that everyone said, I would not be a good artist.
