Stromae’s 5 most popular quotes

  • I’m trying to stay normal, that’s all. But it’s hard.
  • Hip-hop, pop, dance – the common point is melancholy. That’s international, and I like this word because it’s not only about sadness or happiness – it’s both at the same time. And that’s human, and that’s life.
  • Our ambition isn’t just to be big, it’s to be listened to and supported by people. And to have the success – if we deserve it, of course.
  • We are proud of our ridiculousness. That’s what made our Surrealism. Proud and ashamed of everything at the same time. I think that’s my definition of Belgium.
  • I think it’s good to eat a bit of everything, but when you eat too much junk food, it’s bad for you and for your brain. You don’t understand why, but you feel sad. It’s because of the junk food!
