[1] "I'm very reluctant to say I 'converted' to Islam, because that somehow creates a me-you or us-them notion. I'm a rock star. I don't talk about my personal spiritualism. If it's anywhere, it's in my work. [...] If you ask me, I am a Muslim, totally committed. But from a universal perspective, I am a perfect Jew, I am a perfect Christian, I am completely Buddhist. In the end, there are no divisive lines drawn."
