Favorite Quotes from T-Pain
“My first car was an ’84 Ford Taurus. It caught on fire from me trying to change the fuel pump, so that wasn’t good at all. Dried leaves on the ground while I was trying to change the fuel pump. Don’t do that. Do it on concrete.” – T-Pain
“Well, because I was broke. That’s one of those things you go through—being hungry and not being able to do anything about it. It was tough. It was a sucky situation. Instead of calling myself T-Sucks, it was T-Pain. You know, it was just a heavy situation. It just wasn’t fun. I’ll tell you that. But you know, normal struggle shit.” – T-Pain
“People started not fucking with me anymore outside of my family, and I realized that my wife and my kids were the only ones that are really sticking with me through all this bullshit. So why am I trying to tweet all these people I don’t know and make sure all my Twitter mentions are poppin’ and all that other bullshit instead of making sure my people are good at home? Fuck these other people that don’t care if I live or die.” – T-Pain
“They automatically think we get waited on hand and foot with everything. They don’t think we tie our own shoes. Sometimes that’s what some artists portray and that’s not a real thing. That’s annoying. I hate when people tie my shoes. I’m not a child.” – T-Pain
“Yeah, we’re talking people that have been touring since the ’80s—touring full-on, selling out seats since the ’70s and the ’80s. We’re talking about obviously all the rock bands like Queen. Like, good, God! Nobody would be able to tour ever if Freddie Mercury was still here.” – T-Pain
