rollingstone is in bold:
I bet you dont feel like a school boy too often.
Yeah except when I do these little stints with teenage girls, like Mandy Moore at the VMAs.
What's wrong with MTV's VMAs? It used to be fun to watch.
What's right about it? The rock section was condensed into a 90 second montage with 3 bands that nobody was even sure of unless they heard the songs on a Vodafone commercial. There were no rock stars, except for my brief moment of confusion introducing the Jim Jones Orchestra [laughs]
Right. You're talking about the Polyphonic Spree.
Yeah. They were the most fascinating thing about the VMAs, and they represent everything that I despise in music and life: happiness, friendship, fellowship and bright clothing.
Avril Lavigne told me that you and she hang out. Why?
Isn't that a rhetorical question? Because I can. She came backstage at one of my shows in Canada. She's very peculiar, because she travels with out an entourage or a babysitter, something I am incapable of doing. I also showed Avril my dildo-cam- it's a dildo with a video camera inside- but we didnt go too far with that.
You said in a recent interview that the "perfect utopia would be for artists to replace politicians and government." Who should be president?
It would have to be more of a dictator or a king, and just out of clear pretentiousness I would say myself. But I would still yield to the seniors. Maybe Bowie should be king first, then he could knight me.
What about secretary of defense?
Beyonce, because she's got the hips for it.
when you preform, what essntial items do you keep nearby?
I have an area where I do my quick change. On my last tour, I'd have absinthe with a glass of ice; black makeup, which hasn't been worn since Al Jolson; and drugs. We won't talk specifics about the drugs.
I'll tell you what. I'm someone who carries alot of straws, but I dont drink milkshakes at all.
sigh. hes such a dope.
