"You can auto-tune a BMW but not a human being… unreal! If your voice can’t cut it, well that’s because you’re human, alright? And if you find a human voice… unbeautiful, then all of music is a waste of time, because the voice is the first and foremost of music. Instruments are accoutrements, accessories… but the voice is the message. The pain in a word—it doesn’t have to be completely in tune for it to be felt accurately and hit the heart. And why would you want to, like, speed that up and robotize that? You know—that’s for people who don’t have anything to say."
