Even though my first marriage broke up, I’d say that I’ve had two good marriages and two good men. I’ve been very lucky. I like to think it’s karma because, in a relationship, I give 300 per cent. I’m straight with my men, and I like to think it comes back.

Galaxie 500 broke up because it was time. We broke up as a result of internal contradictions.
