I'm very excited but I also feel quite calm Darren Hayes: Loved the banners btw Lunahaze asks "Good afternoon Darren, thank you for this chat. I am so excited about your new album, I love it!!
After hearing the tracks played on Capital radio last night, I've been walking around with a huge grin on my face all day which isn't that common lately. I was wondering, simply, what has made you smile today? Oh and after hearing 'Popular' my 7 year old son asks Why do you want to be popular? It seems that you are a really sensitive person, and I would have thought that, the more personal your music, the harder it would be when it's criticised.
How do you deal with criticism? I think you have to take it in but not on board if that makes sense. I think we are taught that happiness is a luxury when it should be a birthright I think elation and that kind of heightened euphoria is never meant to last.
FanForLife asks "Hi Darren! I'm desperate to hear your new album! We've read that you found it therapeutic writing the album - how far has it gone in helping to heal old wounds and put you back on your true path?
Well it was a very cleansing experience for my soul. I felt a lot of pain and I wanted to get it out and reflect upon it. I did that and I feel like a stronger person for having identified what happened to me and where I am today. My real question iswhat do you do when you can't sleep ie; count sheep. Luv and Hugs Jaz xxx" Darren Hayes: I got a bit concerned when we almost got arrested My dad will kill me!! I didn't mean the dancers were lame I mean they were wearing gold lame Smilyk asks "Hey Darren!

My question is, How Popular are you prepared to be and how much is too much. Good luck with everything. I'm a professional slob so I can't be having the snapparzzi stalking me. There were times though when it seemed like I was prying into your life when I was listening to it so I was wondering if there was at any time any doubts you had in releasing a particular song" Darren Hayes: I was always aware that the album was confessional and perhaps would be uncomfortable for people to listen to.
Thanks, Tammy" Darren Hayes: I love singing live but I hate selling myself. Do you like them hot and what's your fav take away? I like em mild. I hope you're ok and everything love popular btw I went to the hairdresser today. I'm off caffeine and I already hate it. I never get belly lint anymore Adam asks "Of all the songs you have written both as a Solo artist and as part of Savage Garden, do you have a particular favourite? TearsOfPearls asks "Hey you!
