On his days as a bully :

On Matteo and Valentino:
"I don't want them growing up in a house of lies... or think that there was something wrong with being gay."

On his latest job on Australia's "The Voice":
"I felt the outpouring of love, and I could feel the criticism, too, but I loved that. I love the honesty and the truth. People tell it like it is in Australia."
