ON "DOG DAYS" BEING USED IN THE EAT PRAY LOVE TRAILER
It was quite serendipitous. I was in Miami playing a show, and someone had just left a copy of the book in the cab I was in, so I started reading it. It was kind of a sign or something. I really like the book, but I haven't seen the film. But I figure that Julia Roberts and I are now friends!
ON HER FEMALE-ROCKER IDOL
Courtney Love. I had her poster on my wall growing up, the one with her in the pink wings.
ON HER ALL-TIME FAVORITE VIDEO
Bjork's "It's Oh So Quiet," directed by Spike Jonze. I love the mix of reality and then everyone just bursts into song-the whole world becomes a musical.
ON HER BEST VMA MEMORY
When Britney Spears did "I'm a Slave 4 U" [in 2001]. It was incredible. I'm still a huge Britney fan. Go Britney!
