I can text whatever I want to anybody in the world; I’m not married I write a lot of dirty text messages to girls, and you’ve never seen any of them. Why? Because if a girl brought a dirty text message from me to the newspapers, they’d say ‘I don’t have an angle here. Someone wants to wear your a— like a hat? Big deal. He’s 32 years old.
