It was just me and Mikhail, late 1990. I was up front with him. I said, "Look, Mikey, let's be honest with each other here. You want to end Soviet Communism, and I want to sell some records. If my fans have no money, they're not going to be able to afford to dress like me, go to my concerts, or buy my breakfast cereal. I know people are worried about where they're going to work after the decline of the Soviet State, but I say that the Fall of Communism is the Spring of Euro-Pop, and there's plenty of work for these Russians in my musical empire." Let's say that he saw my reasoning, and today he is making a very nice living for himself answering my fan mail out of a small office on the lower east side.
