Kate Bush: (On the sessions of Aerial) There was a sense of being at play as well as at work. I think that's very important because it is so hard and so frustrating sometimes trying to get an idea to materialise. It's not an easy process. I really like working with people who are old friends, it's lovely.
Kate Bush: I have been genuinely touched by the sense of anticipation I've felt from people. I feel really privileged that people have been waiting.
Kate Bush: (Regarding her movie The Line, the Cross & the Curve(1993) I shouldn't have done it. I was so tired. I'm very pleased with four minutes of it, but I'm very disappointed with the rest. I let down people like Miranda Richardson who worked so hard on it. I had the opportunity to do something really interesting and I completely blew it.
Kate Bush: I am a private person, but I don't think I'm obsessively so. It's more that I choose to try and have as normal a life as possible. I don't like to live in the glare of publicity.
Kate Bush: I'm very opinionated. I'm so fussy and picky. What's good is that I know what I want. It's when you don't know what you want when you're in trouble.
Kate: When I'm writing, I've been playing something for a couple of hours, and I'm almost in a trance. At two or three in the morning, you can actually see bits inspiration floating about and grab them.
Kate: (In the interview for her Cloudbusting video) Well the song is inspired by a book, and so it was that story that we were telling.
Kate: (Talking about her latest album "Aerial") I'm so pleased with everyone's work on this record. There are some lovely performances and I hope you all feel it's been worth the wait. Bertie keeps me very busy. He is so much fun.
Kate: My first Top of the Pops I didn't want to do. I was terrified. I'd never done television before. Seeing the video afterwards was like seeing myself die.
Kate: School was a very cruel environment and I was a loner. But I learnt to get hurt and I learnt to cope with it.
Kate: I think quotes are very dangerous things.
