Apart from singing, what one thing do you do better than anybody else?
Well, I do a great imitation of a bear, usually for kids or everybody willing to wait the 30 minutes I need to find concentration.

I've heard you are writing an autobiography. Is it true?
Yes! It is regrettable that I have little time to put down the words, as we creatives use to say. Recently I've read the inside flap of "Twilight", and I found it passable. Therefore, I've ordered my agent to call the author - a certain Stephenie Meyer - because I need a ghost writer, but for the time being I've not received any news.

Which is your favorite movie?
Surely "Dungeon and Dragons". I think that casting Thora Birch for that character was very appropriate.

Jewel, where did you go on your last holiday?
Last year I leased a luxurious mansion in a secretive valley of Estonia. The payment included barbed wire aplenty to ensure my privacy and also a mob of extras pretending to be unhinged admirers to let me feel cherished.

Could you improvise a lyric for us.
O.K.! Here it is

Everthing you took away
You took away the emotions,
you took your love away from me.
A comb, a button alone in a drawer
the only sings of you.
You took yourself away from me,
everything you took away,
so how come your uncle is here to stay?

In an article published on American Ethical Transactions, prof. Brian Wright observed that your songs are "a supernatural summation of newfangled symbolic rationalism". Any comment?
I think that in his essay printed on Journal of Semiotic Foundations, dr. Brian Richardson completely discredited that frivolous observation.

Indiana Jones, Lara Croft or Professor Layton?
Are these the only rock groups you can name?

Do you like to cook?
To be frank, I believe that cooking food is a big waste of energy. After all, there are restaurants and supporters more than willing to provide my daily intake of vitamines and carbohydrates. In the few occasions I oblige to cook for my buddies, I like to devise salads. My masterpiece is a mix of bacon and seaweeds, which I believe can be cool for both vegans and normal people.

Would you like to share the recipe?
Certainly! You take the bacon and the seaweeds and you make a bunch of sandwiches using some Italian focaccia.

It does not matter, I derived the recipe from one for a sandwich. After you made the sandwiches, you dispose of the bread and mix bacon and seaweeds with some dill and you are done!

I patiently set up a short exchange with Jewel several weeks in advance. The resulting piece was amazing, like it was written by the ghost of Dr. Seuss under the influence of too much beer. Thus, it was awfully regrettable, to put it mildly, that my mother in law (probably on purpose!) set my only copy on fire! After I regained my composure, I struggled to remember those wonderful words. So, to be honest, I'm not really so sure this web page is a completely precise chronicle of what transpired during our interview, and now I'm beginning to be uncertain it ever happened...
