Tokyo Hotel released their single 'Through the Monsoon' 15 years ago which brought them millions. But early fame also had its pitfalls. Frontman Bill had to isolate himself completely, while his colleagues were able to have relationships and private lives. Kaulitz in an interview with the 'RND': "For me, career and work always have the highest priority. My private life has often fallen by the wayside. That's still the case today.” But did that also destroy him? The singer continued: "I think we humans are all broken. We all carry our baggage, our scars and our injuries. I have different scars than other people, because of course my life was very different from that of many people.”
And does he regret his career today? The singer: "Of course you say afterwards that I would have liked to have saved myself some things: whether it's a broken heart in my private life, people I would rather not have met, or career decisions that I made wrong. But if I had a button now and could start everything over again, I wouldn't choose another profession. Singing, performing live, that's what I love the most and what I do best. Also: Pain is part and parcel of a great and important career.” He says of his future: “The past few years have shown me, both privately and professionally, that it is incredibly difficult to predict things. I'll still be doing my job in ten or 15 years, I know I'm far from done. But in which direction this is going, how we as a band and the world will continue, and where it will take us, I can't say all that."
