“I'd like to conclude by reminding you that I did not write this text. You could say that the real me is hidden behind the words, and you don't really learn anything about me by listening to what I say. The one who wrote the text tried to figure out what someone who looks like me might say. But she doesn't know me and she probably never will. If I had written the text myself, it would be very different. But the song I played was picked by me, (says her name)”.
