How does it feel for you to have several number one dance songs?

I am amazed and happy!

Nathan Ardern
Are you planning any more music at the moment?

I am making music as we speak.

Yong Kim
Do you ever sing “We’re All Water” live anymore ? It’s one of my all-time favorite songs. Greetings from Los Angeles. – Noodles, Asian punk comic

I sometimes include that song in my concerts even now.

Michele-Healy Bricker
I admire the fact that you always marched to a beat of your own drum. Any advice on how to deal with people that just don’t get you xoxo

Too bad for them.

Albert Murrian
Do you like it when people call you an “avant-garde artist”? Are you comfortable with that designation? Is that how you would describe yourself?

I think of myself as a woman of our species.

Brenda Gracia
Yoko, in a recent interview with Rolling Stone you said it’s easy to change the world. In fact, for the sake of mother nature, just like we learned from fairy tales in our childhood, there are Yin and Yang in the universe. Everything comes in a pair, so when we are trying to create better things, despair is triggered and they collide. What do we do then? Yoko, you first met John 48 years ago on 9 November 1966. It was your art installation that connected you both. My question is, will it make any difference if the word he saw through the spyglass wasn’t “YES”?

John said it would have made a difference if that word was No. But who knows. We may have connected anyway.

Vanessa Clark
Hi again, Yoko Ono. In the Lennon NYC documentary, you said how John was very anxious to record Double Fantasy, and worried that another couple will do the same thing before it’s released. Then you said that no other couple has done an album like Double Fantasy since. Why do you think that is?

Because it is so difficult to do so. We were totally blessed to have done it. Without the blessings, we could not have done it.

Kyle Burns
What did John like to do in New York City?

Just enjoy living like we all do in our environment.

Mari Mcnamee
Dear Yoko, during this holiday season I am gong to keep in mind Ho’oponopono and Rainbow Revelation as ways to help me stay peaceful during family gatherings. I am lucky to have a great family. But we are only human, so old things come up sometimes. Thank you and love you.

I know what you mean. Don’t be nervous. Be prepared to love every moment of your experience.

Brian Jarpey
Where is the soul located?

Everywhere.

Did you write the words to “We’re All Water” ? I was blasting it out from my verandah last night, it still rocks!

I’m glad if it gives you good energy. That is what it’s for.

Richard Weis ‏@richtweis
Love, love Listen, the Snow Is Falling. Can you share any detail(s) about the writing/recording of this song?

The memory of similar instructions I wrote in Grapefruit gave me the inspiration.

Ani ‏@ani_data
What is your most poignant memory of the many performances of “Cut Piece”?

At no time I fell the experience of Cut Piece to be “poignant.” That is not a word I connected with the experience.

SPACE AGE ART ‏@spaceageart
If you could board a spaceship right now that answers all questions but wouldn’t be able to say goodbye to anyone, would you go?

I know all the answers will come to me in time, so I will not exchange that with parting from my loved ones. My loved ones are all of you.

jessica gabriel ‏@garlicjoy
How does a working artist take a vacation away from the creative work? have you ever intentionally given art a break?

I never needed a break from the work I love.

Anna Cafolla ‏@AnnaCafolla
What advice would you give to young women who want to change the world?

Love yourself as you are.

Fred Rouse ‏@davincijoke
Why do you wear black most of the time? When your words are full of love and color – peace

Black is not a colour as the rest of the colours are. Black coats you from all colour experience, and gives you a space to work in.

Albert Murrian ‏@AlbertBMurrian
I love your sense of fashion. You always look like a million bucks. Where do you find all of your cool hats?

I seem to be a magnet that brings those hats to me for my enjoyment!

Rosey Ashton ‏@ozgrrl
Is it possible that humans hate because they are scared to feel love, they worry about losing control, hate is simple.

Hate is a form of love.

Felicia Marano ‏@cutelyobsessive
Do you believe anything can actually be a waste of time?

Everything is a good experience that teaches you what you should know.

G N V ‏@confortarevita
What is the best advice you’ve ever been given?

Everything in my life is advice to me.

Zain Adam ‏@zainadam2002
What, in your opinion is the most effective way, of getting people to try to act for peace?

All your experiences are effective if you act with love.

Felix77 ‏@7Flash7
Hi Yoko…what is your greatest hope for 2015?

That I will have a good time improving myself.

    Joseph Martin john is a light that will never go out for all you need is love will continue to feed this light
    he was a poet, songwriter, composer, a father, a champion for peace but most of all he was just a man. unlike paul m. he could feel and write a…bout pain and longing and reach the depths of dispair and somehow it was beautiful Help i need somebody, so i sing a song of love for julia, mother you had me but i never had you, women you understand the little child inside a man, i was dreaming in the past and my heart was beating fast, if you want money for people with minds that hate all i can tell you brother you’ll have to wait, war is over if you want it, no need for greed or hungar a brotherhood of man,but most of all IN MY LIFE I LOVE YOU MORE
    happy birthday john you are loved and i and millions more will miss you

  5. Felipe says:

    Yoko, your message is beautiful and we still believe in Peace.

    Here in South America we fight everyday for our beliefs, our ideals, our peace motives and for the beauty of life.

    Sometimes is very hard to swim against the currents, against over consumption, against the media, against the powerful and their money.

    But when i saw you and your willpower to keep screaming for peace and love for everyone, i feel alive now and i’ll keep yelling and working to build a better world for us all.

    Thank you Yoko. Mata ne!

    Felipe Nadeau.

  6. Shrujana says:

    • Yoko Ono says:

      Hi Jen! It’s nice that you participated in the scream piece and screamed. Your scream joined all the other screams of that piece performed in MOMA, and is sending out a strong vibration and making a strong statement to the world. love, yoko

    HI Yoko,

    I am doing a write up on Cut Piece. I was wondering what is a message or representation you were trying to say with this piece?

    Thanks,

    Kallie

  12. Sonia says:

    Thank you for the answers that you shared to me especially about questions related when you were expecting a baby with John.. One of my favorites is you are craving meat and cabbage and about morning sickness.. hope if you don’t mind I could post some questions that was bugging in my head. it is all about Sean when he was not yet born (I mean inside your womb)… again thank you…

  13. Love your response to my query, thank you so much for your work. You’re absolutely right about love.
