Trouble is, kids feel they have to shock their elders and each generation grows up into something harder to shock.
When I was a teenager I would lock myself in the bathroom for hours, bouffanting my hair like Patty Duke and trying to recreate Barbra Streisand’s flawless eyeliner, only to comb it all out and wash it all off before stepping out into the world a butchish bisexual teen.
When I was a teen, I thought I would have to choose between my writing or my music or my art, but it turns out it’s a difficult juggling game but I can do all of them.
I love the live performances and Las Vegas. I also like making films that are being discovered by another generation. Having been a teen idol of the ’60s is great because you realize you left your generation with a smile and good memories.
