"There was a near riot in the audience behind me and I got scared to the point where I had one of the sound guys come and just stand next to me during that movement.

THE FORMER GIRLS FRONTMAN SETS OUT ON HIS OWN
“I’ve had people send me articles, ‘Christopher broke up Girls to go model,’ just ridiculous things. That’s ridiculous to me because I didn’t break up the band, for one, and people tell me, ‘I’m really sad about the band breaking up,’ like they expect me to not know what that’s like.
