It's happened for at least six months now, this whole image of everybody portraying me as a playboy. That's not me. When I go out, I go out with my group of friends. Any girl who approaches me in a club and tries to win me over, I'm not gonna go for it. (after his breakup with Britney Spears)
Make out in a club? I didn't do that when I was with Britney. Why would I do it with somebody I just met?
I'm very happy with (the album). It's very me, and that's all you can do as an artist is do what you think is an extension of you. (about his latest album)
