"What came first, the music or the misery? People worry about kids playing with guns, or watching violent videos, that some sort of culture of violence will take them over. Nobody worries about kids listening to thousands, literally thousands of songs about heartbreak, rejection, pain, misery and loss. Did I listen to pop music because I was miserable? Or was I miserable because I listened to pop music?" -Rob Gordon (John Cusack)

2. Do you think people should watch their weight?
From my point of view people should watch their weight but always with the help of a nutritionist who recommended an appropriate diet and beneficial to our health. However, people shouldn’t follow this kind of dangerous diets.
