Nelly Furtado's quotes

  • I put pressure on myself to be musically fresh, which is different from being trendy or being current. I like a fusion of sounds, just as long as it's funky.
  • This idea that artists are always going to make the right choices and do the right thing is kind of a falsehood. That's what my songs are about. Falling down and getting back up again.
  • I've come to my rose-colored nostalgia moment, where I'm celebrating home. It's taken many years to get to the point where I feel lucky.
  • [noticing that her album Folklore was particularly successful in Germany, where it reached the top 5 on the albums chart] Why do Germans love this album? I think I figured it out: It's so cerebral. It's great in its own way, but that's a different side.
  • [describing the songs on her album Mi Plan] Simple love songs.
  • Roses are red / Some diamonds are blue / Chivalry is dead / But you're still kinda cute
  • I wish I hadn't seen all of the realness / And all the real people are really not real at all / The more I learn, the more I learn / The more I cry, the more I cry / As I say goodbye to the way of life / I thought I had designed for me
  • Paint my face in your magazines / Make it look whiter than it seems / Paint me over with your dreams / Shove away my ethnicity / Burn every notion that I may have a flame inside to fight / And say just what is on my mind / Without offending your might
  • Music can help someone through a good time, it can help them through a hard time. It works both ways.
  • If I can't get along with someone who voted for a different person, we're doomed. That's why we have war. All we're missing is a little bit more compassion and empathy.
