Artists are usually people who have been through hard times. But in order to get where they are, something has to go right. Often, it's got a lot to do with luck: someone offers you a way out or a place to feel safe. When I was young, I was lucky. I was given the opportunities I needed to overcome difficult circumstances. Protégé knows that talent isn’t enough to succeed. People need to be given a chance. A chance is a very fine thing. Don’t underestimate it.
