"I’d totally be down to work with Justin Bieber. Just to see if I could make a great pop song out of his talent. I think it’s better he’s going down the more serious route but “Boyfriend,” I don’t know. The whispering part is pretty whack. I like the sort of Timberlake route he went with it. I can understand how he doesn’t want to be compared to that but you have to look at the big picture, like what does he have to offer and what can make it better? When he worked with The-Dream, that was pretty awesome. That’s how pop music works though, it’s all really calculated, that’s why I don’t really wanna get close to it."--Toro y Moi, on pop music in an interview with Pigeons & Planes.
