"If I took too much interest in what negativity was being thrown around about me or Panic!, I wouldn’t get anything done. If someone has an opinion about me, I want it to be strong, I want it to be polarizing. I prefer, ‘I love what he did’ or ‘I just hate this motherfucker so bad,’ as opposed to, ‘Aw, it’s cute that he’s trying.’ I want to generate some kind of emotion from people.”
