An interesting and apropos comment on relationship:

“However, when Laurie Anderson entered the picture, this pattern changed. “Laurie’s way of handling herself, and why their relationship worked and lasted for such a long time, is she never gave up her independence. She had her own career and reputation,” adds DeCurtis. “The earlier women, I think, just tried to please him, and that was never going to work.
