“If you listen to my song ‘Living On My Own,’ that is very me. It’s living on my own, but having fun. There’s a bit in the middle where I do my scat singing and I’m just saying that when you think about somebody like me, my lifestyle, I have to go around the world and live in hotels and that can be a very lonely life. But I chose it….I mean, you can have a whole shoal of people looking after you, but in the end they all go away and you are in a hotel room on your own….It’s a different kind of living on my own. People with my success can be lonely and can live on their own as well. I’m just saying that I’m living on my own and I’m having a boogie time! “
