Josh Groban Quotes
“In New York people are respectful. If ever I get to the point where I couldn’t get on a subway in New York I’d be really unhappy. I do have a problem in LA. The celebrity culture is out of control – it’s like celebrity whale watching. The dirty little secret is that most people are inviting it. I try and stay away from that scene because I value my privacy. I need to keep myself grounded in the mud.”
“When it comes to the acting stuff, I like to show up for a couple days and kind of be outrageous and silly, and go back to my day job.”
“I get terrible butterflies. Before I go onstage, I’ll have to freak out for five minutes. I scream. It seems to help!”
