    They're cute and funny but they talk about them being gay too much kind of like Ellen does. I don't want to hear about their sexual escapades and I have lost respect for them as musicians.

    This was annoying. He didnt bother to read the book or do any research before he interviewed them.

    I'd love to hang out with them. They seem like such great fun. Love the deadpan humour.

    This interview is so much better than Lilly's Interview. He lets them speak, doesn't seem overly excited and calmly cracks jokes after they're done which actually are funny. Lilly's Interview seemed rushed didn't bring out their personality and how funny they actually are.

    I wish T&S would have given their fans a heads up on the show they are touring right now.No band,no show.I actually fell asleep and I LOVE T&S!!!!!!I have seen them 12 times and I think some fans would have appreciated knowing they were gonna read at the gig.

    I used to love their early stuff but then their stuff in the last 5-10 years has been like meh. I’ve only heard 1 song from this new album and even though it’s based on songs they wrote in the 90s, I’m not feelin it. They’ve gone too electro and not in the good ways.

    Totally different from my twin relationships. My twin bro was born 7 minutes earlier than me and we were so close man. We have this special connection which Stephan was talking about. You can think of something and my bro goes: hey, why dont we??? I was like, hey, I was going to ask you about that. This connection is really special. I left my country and now I see him only through the internet. I miss him so much. He is my best friend forever! Love you man!

    My origin story, established (finally):
    I'm not...
    This basketball loving, b-boy, flip guy. Walking around so happy coz I'm cool & everybody likes me. Ohh, yeah, isn't that right!? Boom! [Fist bump]. I'll say I'm Chinese, coz I'm kinda light & some of those Chinese genes for sure would've made me smart. I know SOOO little, but I think I know a lot. In a conversation, I go like, "Oh, yeah! yeah! I know... I know that!". Then mention a few things I think whatever this other person is talking about. I just want to make them happy in their talk to me.

    Wow they're 39! When I started listening to them, they were 29, and I forgot that they age as well - It`s been 10 years and they look the same, with better hair.

    The first ever album I bought for myself in high school was The Con by Tegan and Sara. I was a major T&S fan and that album is still one of my all time favourites. Great seeing them on Stephen Colbert! They are a Canadian national treasure and Iam so proud of their success

      The interviewers are the one asking questions, they probably are tired of answering the same things over again.
