 I am pumped to get back on the road and start rocking out on stage for all my awesome fans, 
— Bret Michaels / February 18, 2011
 We’ve been on and off together for 16 years and I have to be honest with you, I think she was pretty surprised, because I’m one of those guys that believed in love but I’ve always shied away from the whole marriage thing, 
— Bret Michaels revealing details about his engagement with Kristi Gibson / January 31, 2011
 TV has absolutely made my sales go up, made my tour guarantees go up. TV has been a great addition to my career. But the key thing is knowing what to walk away from. I advise anyone-especially musicians-to be very careful not to just grab anything they throw your way. 
— Bret Michaels saying acting in reality show has boosted his CD sales / October 10, 2010
 I thought that I have three generations of Poison fans, and this would open me up to a whole new generation. My fears about the show weren’t about music. I turned it down the first time they approached me, because their first idea was very retro. They wanted the 1986 Bret Michaels. My fans enjoyed the teased hair, the spandex. It was great, it was the time I lived in. Who knew that spandex tucked into cowboy boots would ever go out of style? But for some strange reason, it did. I’d progressed forward and I didn’t want to go back. I stood up for myself and said, "You need to let me be who I am right now in my life." 
— Bret Michaels said of his decision to take part in Rock of Love / October 10, 2010
 I’ve been like this my whole life. With juvenile diabetes you have to be very health-conscious. At the same time, it’s in my blood to live life to your fullest. I work hard and play hard. So when all this happened with the brain hemorrhage and everything, I think most people thought I’d slow down. To me, it was eye opening that life can be over even sooner than I imagined, and to that my heart tells me to do all the things I can before I can’t. I’m out touring pretty hard and filming TV shows, and I’m also flying home to see my family more than ever. So, yes, I am spending more time with my family than ever but I’m also making sure I leave no stone unturned and making every minute count. 
— Bret Michaels has no plans to slow down despite his recent health problems / October 06, 2010

 I’m going in there thinking very positively that it’s going to be great and I’m going to feel a whole lot better, but I’d be lying to say that somewhere in my subconscious there’s not a little bit of gulling. When they’re going through your body to operate on your heart, it’s going to hit you somewhere that they’re toying with the ticker. There’s definitely a little fear in there somewhere. 
— Bret Michaels is struggling to think positive recently / October 04, 2010
 We’ve been talking a lot about getting engaged, and we’ll see what happens. We just want to make sure we’re not doing it for anyone other than ourselves. 
— Bret Michaels saying he and and his longtime love Kristi Gibson are talking about marriage / August 24, 2010
 Fate has a strange way of intervening in your life, and I think everything just kind of came together. Hopefully we’ll get engaged. But if we don’t, we’ll still love and respect each other. 
— Bret Michaels saying he and and his girlfriend love Kristi Gibson grew much closer because of his recent health problems / August 24, 2010
 The great thing about today, with the Internet and American Idol, is that you get instant exposure to millions of people. Here’s the downside: it’s also easily disposable if you don’t let people find out more about your personality and who and what you are. In other words, you can get easily exposed and then easily disposed if you’re not careful. And I’m going to try to build new talent that will be around like Poison, Aerosmith, Stevie Nicks and Lynyrd Skynyrd. You can say what you want about us classic bands, but we’re still out here selling out arenas. That’s what I hope to bring to American Idol — some of those years and years of experience and true grit to the show. 
— Bret Michaels saying he would have tried out for American Idol when he was a fledgling rocker / July 08, 2010
