"I'm an overweight man and that inhibits a lot... I've tried to put on shades and be cool or whatever, but it always feels like too much of an affectation. It's easier for me to go, 'Look I am who I am, f**k it'. I maybe felt more comfortable in my skin when I was younger. Fat people, you know, they put on weight because it's a barrier, it's a way to keep life away." Pixies rocker Black Francis has no hang-ups about his size.
