charlie: you're influenced by you.people say about you decide i want to do a parody tosome way, i want to go some extreme what you're saying just to say -- john: the intent is to make people go, he's not that. he's playing off that. but that's asking a lot of people's attention span to be able notice that and intelligence. can give youple i -- i'm sure you heard this paparazzi onu have the way to restaurant, they say, of should stake a picture them. why don't you go outside and take a picture of them. idea whenbody's first they feel little bit captured by something. is so fight back. back isn't fighting intellectual. you can't contain me. we're talking hyper extending myself. way beyond what should be taking place. back tont to do is get
where it's clean. here's who i am, here's what i do. i promise you i'm this and not that. i mean well. torlie: the reason they want becauserize you that -- -- john: there was a period of time of moving --ort explain. to it's hear to explain i'm still impacting it. a situation where you did a lot of big names. name.a lot of big i think people get the size of thename mixed up with number of people that been with. charlie: seem like you're out a lot of women. long time to me a realize people do not google search me. take a glance at you and

"born and raised" a
lot. that was a wounded thing. ofot a lot of music out going deep in myself. this was a different dive. into being ae certain age and i think there's a loss in relationship. there's always one relationship loss i feel like that takes you with it. not just somebody -- you're not parting ways with somebody. there's one kind of takes you down. something.u lose john: yes. this is this idea of being as canlutely beautiful as you be. outwhoever sort of rock lets and journalist say it's lighter, it's bland. be as beautiful as i can be about being sad. that's kind of what this was. back to the song called emoji of a wave. feels like. this this is as an artist, musician, you don't normally get.
