"My dad gave me this great piece of advice when I was younger. I was really into Billie Holiday and I was reading every biography I could get, and all of those biographies would say she’s just a natural. And it made me sad because it made me think, well, Billie Holiday’s a natural, I’m never going to be a natural. And my dad told me that’s bullshit, and actually it’s pretty insulting to her because I can guarantee you she worked her ass off. And the older I get and the more I’ve done this, I can see of course that’s true."
