People ask me, do I blame Hollywood or my parents? No I dont blame my parents. It had nothing to do with them. I created it and manifested it and I got myself through it with the help of a lot of great people. When I look back at old photos, Im able to laugh at myself, in the same way I can show my dad [Lionel Richie] a picture of himself when he was in The Commodores with the Afro and the bell bottoms and hes like, Oh baby, thats so funny.'
