Afghanistan has safe zones… so it’s possible to send grown-ups back to that country. We can’t empty Afghanistan.

Sometimes I’m in that timeout, and I say, ‘Let’s go a possession of zone,’ and they’re like, ‘Yeah, let’s do it,’ and that shows that they’re confident enough to roll with whatever we’re doing.

I’m mainly a dancer, but I’ve been offered to write songs on albums this year, and that’s really cool. I never thought I’d get to do that. It’s out of my comfort zone, but I loved having that input. It makes you feel more involved, when you have that creative control.
I’m really lucky because I can sleep on planes. I wear an eye mask, I have a book, and I sit down and pass out pretty easily. I know that not everyone can.

I don’t think you can set up a computer to do a strike zone on a guy who’s 6-foot-5 and then a guy who’s 5-8. Where does it draw the line? One guy stands tall, and another squats down, and it changes the lines. Nah. I still love the umpires; they do a great job. I don’t have a problem with any of that.
A lot of hitters stay away from the plate, some are close up, some are forward, some are back. The thing about hitting is this: You have to know the strike zone. That’s the most important thing. Hit strikes and put the bat on the ball.

I am moving towards that zone where I don’t want to be a replaceable name. This is my goal. I want to hear from the industry that, ‘You are the only one who can do this.

I’d been to a number of war zones before in my life, but I had never been in one as terrifying as Chechnya.
