putrefashionworld said: All the critics love you in New York. Is it true?

It’s true that that’s a killer Prince song.

It is not true that all the critics love me in New York or anywhere else. I don’t think I’ll ever be one of those “Critic’s darlings,” but I can think of far worse fates than never being showered with praise.

I like New York a lot. Not the chick from the old reality show, the city.

haus-of-artiste said: What is your opinion on the LGBT community?

"Community," is a very broad term so I can’t really answer that part of it without a more narrow definition. I can say that I openly support LGBT rights/equality. I’m disgusted by the way LGBT people are treated worldwide and the laundry list of what should be their inalienable rights from which they are still being alienated.

Like, I just though I was a freak for thinking colors had like, personalities.
I don't feel so alone now! Thanks!

See! It’s a fairly common thing but most people never think to talk about it. I didn’t know it was a thing until I was reading about somebody else that had it.

RE: Synesthesia-

Some of them aren’t strongly associated with colors…some of them are extremely: 5, M, and W are all “Blue,” A, Y, 4, I, and V are all “Yellow,” 8, and B are “Orange,” P, S, and R, are “Red,” but then like O is nothing. It’s just O haha

hussiens said: So, I don't know if you'll have to face this question in the future, but I'm sure you're aware of the show "glee" and how they constantly do covers of various songs. Point is, if you were asked by them if they could cover one of your or FOB's songs, would you be opposed to it? Other artists like Kings of Leon have told them no, and I wanted to know if you'd follow suit if it came up.

I’m not a snob about “Syncs,” (licensing music for television shows/video games/movies). I’m happy with whoever wants to use my music for something as long as they’re not using it to express/promote something I find offensive (racism/homophobia/greed/sexism/etc.).

dernierelune said: I've read that you're a synesthete. Is this true? And if so, what type of synesthesia do you have? I've only recently figured out that I have ordinal linguistic personification synesthesia, basically giving personalities and traits to colors, numbers, and the like. I'd love to hear about yours.

I have Grapheme-> Color Synesthesia, and Sound -> Color Synesthesia. Most letters and numbers “Feel,” like a color. Music also can have colors associated with them (but this is a lot less pronounced than my grapheme->color associations). I’ve talked to a lot of musicians though and the more I talk to the more I’m finding out that this is fairly common.

b0nerdirection said: This should probably be a music related question, but I was just wondering if you knew who the Westboro Baptist Church is and if you do, what is your opinion of them? I know it's a big beliefed involved type of question, so for that I apologize. Just curious to hear your response :)

Duh, they’re misguided/cruel people and I can’t imagine even they take themselves fully seriously. 

pontimus said: I know you like acting, so are there any films or particular characters you'd love to have played?

I’m too young to ever play characters like this but Chauncey Gardner from Being There, Bill Murray’s characters in Rushmore, Lost In Translation, or Life Aquatic, if they ever do a biopic on Elvis Costello I want at least an audition haha
