"You see, I think music is a very important thing for the world, and I just want to cover the world with music and art," she continued. "I think art — meaning art with a capital A, is the thing that can really bring change in the world," Ono muses. "Politicians don't have much respect for art — that's why they just ignore it — and we can just do whatever we want in a way, through that kind of situation where there's a big hole. They think we're not powerful, so they just ignore us — that's where we can do all sorts of things and change the world."
