"What Whitney Houston has accomplished will never be accomplished. She's the most famous person on the planet as far as vocaling and her songs. So I'm very happy that I can sit here and say I had a chance to know her. And I'm still dazed that she's gone. But she lives because her music is so powerful."
"Everyone will be famous for 15 minutes."Narada Michael Walden on Andy Warhol
"I have no use for people who throw their weight around as celebrities, or for those who fawn over you just because you are famous."Narada Michael Walden on Walt Disney
"What a heavy burden is a name that has become too famous."Narada Michael Walden on Voltaire
"We all want to be famous people, and the moment we want to be something we are no longer free."Narada Michael Walden on Jiddu Krishnamurti
"Famous, adj.: Conspicuously miserable."Narada Michael Walden on Ambrose Bierce
"I'm very proud of my love for Whitney Houston. She really changed my life. She made my life a better life. She was so beautiful in her love for God, her love for her family and her love for music. She truly loved her music. She could do everything! She had flawless rhythm, flawless pitch, flawless feeling, and flawless beauty."
"I first fell in love with music when I was a little boy. When I first heard music, I felt the beauty in it. Then, being able to tap along on a table top and box was great, but my favorite thing to do was to watch records spin. I would almost get hypnotized by it. These things are what drew me in initially."
"White people couldn't do black music back in the day because they weren't funky or bad enough. They weren't from the ghettoes, but hip-hop and R&B changed all of that because white kids want to be down with it. They wanted to learn it so they studied the culture. It's kind of a cool thing because we shouldn't be so separate."
