'I Enjoyed Your Discussion About My Interview Technique'

@ LAURA130262…BLOOMOON….JOSEPHINE ..SUSI..CLULU…
I ENJOYED YOUR DISCUSSION ABOUT MY INTERVIEW TECHNIQUE AND VARIOUS ALBUMS OF MINE IN THE FORUM

IT MAKES ME THINK IT ALL MEANS ''SOMETHING''

I KNOW THAT MAY SOUND SILLY BECAUSE OF THE 60 MILLION ALBUMS SOLD…
BUT I RARELY THINK THAT ANYONE REALLY HAS MY ALBUMS ..
STRANGE I KNOW BUT I'M REMOVED FROM THAT REALITY SOMEHOW ….
WHEN ANYONE SAYS THEY LIKE WHAT I DO (TO MY FACE) I'M ALWAYS GENUINELY SURPRISED AND GENUINELY TOUCHED

I LOVE RUDEBOX BY THE WAY AND PLANS ARE AFOOT TO MAKE ANOTHER ONE
IT'LL BE AGES YET BUT I THINK IT'S TIME TO DO THE SECOND INSTALMENT
IN MANY WAYS RUDEBOX IS MY FAVOURITE ALBUM OF MINE ..
BUT ALSO IT'S THE ALBUM I WOULD TAKE THE MOST TRACKS OFF TOO…

LOUISE WASN'T A VERY GOOD COVER, KISS ME CAN GO TOO
THAT VERSION OF SUMMERTIME WASN'T THE BEST AND KEEP ON CAN BE DROPPED
THE REST I STAND BY WITH A BIG MIDDLE FINGER GOING ''NO FUCK YOU''
I KNOW I'VE SAID IN CONCERT ABOUT SOME OF MY SONGS NOT BEING THE BEST.
IT'S PANTO….
FOR THE RECORD I FUCKING LOVE BODIES AND I LOVE RUDEBOX. IF IT WASN'T FOR THE PERCEPTION IT WOULD BE FIRST ON MY SET LIST…. IT'S SO MUCH FUN FOR ME TO PERFORM ..
SO WOULD THE 90'S AND THE 80'S ..AFTER THIS STADIUM TOUR I'M GOING TO MOVE BACK TO ARENAS
I LOVED THE 02 LAST YEAR AND I THINK I COULD FANNY ABOUT WITH MY CHOICE OF TUNES IN ARENAS
IN STADIUMS YOU ''HAVE TO'' HIT IT DOWN THE MIDDLE ..IT'S TOO SCARY NOT TO..IMAGINE HOW TERRIFYING IT WOULD BE TO LOSE A WHOLE STADIUM AS I KICK INTO ''WHY D'YOU MUG ME OFF IN MY CAR DICKHEAD?'' LOL

AND I DON'T THINK THE LYRICS TO BODIES ARE GIBBERISH AT ALL (I'VE SAID THIS IN THE PAST)
I KNOW EXACTLY WHAT THEY MEAN ..AND I KNOW EXACTLY WHAT THEY MEAN TO ME TOO…
A TAD SELF-INDULGENT THOUGH …BUT I THINK I'D EARNED THAT RIGHT BY THEN

I CAN'T REMEMBER WHO WROTE IT BUT I READ IN THE FORUM SOMEONE SAYING
''I THINK ROB WITH GUY WROTE THE BEST SINGLES..ROB WITHOUT GUY WROTE HIS BEST ALBUMS''
THIS STRUCK A MASSIVE CHORD…I AGREE 100%

I COULDN'T SERVE UP ANOTHER CHAMBERS/WILLIAMS ALBUM AFTER ESCAPOLOGY
I NEEDED TO ''SPREAD MY WINGS'' AS IT WERE

SOMEONE ASKED WHAT DID STEPHEN DUFFY DO COMPARED WITH GUY…

WELL PUTTING IT SIMPLY…GUY WAS LIKE SAT NAV
STEPHEN WOULD LET ME FIND IT MYSELF …SIMPLISTIC EXPLANATION
BUT IT'S ALL I'VE GOT ON THE PLANE GOING BACK TO LA AFTER 24 HOURS IN GERMANY!

I REALY ENJOYED ''HITTING IT DOWN THE MIDDLE OF THE FAIRWAY'' TOO WITH TAKE THE CROWN
I GOT A LOT FROM IT ..I DIDN'T THINK MY CREATIVE WINGS WERE CLIPPED IN ANY WAY 'COS IT'S WHAT I WAS AIMING FOR..
I WAS REALLY IN LOVE WITH SOME VERY VERY POPPY SONGS LAST YEAR
FOR EXAMPLE I LURRRVED THAT CARLY RAE JEPSEN SONG ''CALL ME MAYBE''.. SO INFECTIOUS
AND THERE ARE OTHER POP SONGS TOO NUMEROUS TO MENTION THAT I LOVE THAT MAYBE IN SOME SORT OF 6TH FORM SNOBBISHNESS I SHOULDN'T …
I WAS HOPING ''SHIT ON THE RADIO" WOULD BE ONE OF THOSE MASSIVE POPPY HITS…
MAYBE I WAS WRONG..I JUST REMEMBER LISTENING TO IT 20 TIMES IN A ROW BY MYSELF IN MY STUDIO AT HOME
GETTING HIGH OFF IT LIKE A BAG OF MINSTRELS AND A CAN OF COKE ….

THERE ARE ALSO SOME PEOPLE IN THE FORUMS THAT ARE REALLY BAD FOR MY CONFIDENCE
SOME OF THE STUFF THAT I'VE READ IN THERE HAS REALLY STRUCK A CHORD
AND I WOULD ADD NOT FOR THE BETTER…I WOULD NAME NAMES BUT I DON'T THINK THAT'S FAIR
JUST PUT IT THIS WAY..READING SOME STUFF ABOUT HOW I AM THESE DAYS…HAS FESTERED SOMEWHAT
AND I WILL CARRY SOME OF THOSE WORDS WITH ME ON STAGE IN THE SUMMER…IN FACT IT WLL BE A BATTLE TO COUNTERACT SOME OF THE THINGS I'VE READ…I WILL THOUGH..SPARTAN!

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

SEPARATE TO THE ABOVE ISSUE

I THINK SOMEONE WROTE ABOUT HOW ANNOYING IT CAN BE WHEN I INTERVIEW PEOPLE AND NOT LET THEM INTERVIEW ME ..

THE REASONING FOR THIS IS THREEFOLD

A. I QUITE FANCY MYSELF AS SOME SORT OF HOST/INTERVIEWER AND LIKE TO PRACTICE... SO IT'S SOMETHING I MAY DO AT SOME POINT

B. 99% OF INTERVIEWS ARE CRAP, MEDIOCRE QUESTIONS OR REHASHED RUBBISH MADE UP BY THE PRESS
SELDOM DO PEOPLE TAKE THE TIME TO ASK WHAT I WOULD CONSIDER PROPER WELL THOUGHT OUT QUESTIONS.
AND I THINK EVEN LESS GIVE ME A PROPER INTERVIEW BECAUSE I'VE BEEN MORE OF A TABLOID ENTITY THAN SOMEONE OF CREATIVE NOTE…AT LEAST THAT'S THE PERCEPTION..AND I DON'T BLAME THEM FOR THAT
THAT'S WHAT I WOULD THINK IF I WASN'T ME TOO..

C. I'M GENUINELY INTERESTED IN PEOPLE ...

THAT'S WHY THAT RADIO 4 INTERVIEW STOOD OUT …MR WILSON GAVE ME SOME RESPECT WITH HIS QUESTIONS
AND GOT THE BEST OUT OF ME…I CAN'T TELL YOU HOW NERVOUS I WAS WHEN I SAT DOWN
I WAS TOLD LAST MINUTE WHAT THE SHOW ACTUALLY WAS …I WAS SCARED I WOULDN'T KNOW THE  ANSWERS
THAT'S WHY I SAY ''I DON'T KNOW'' QUITE A LOT…I LITERALLY DON'T KNOW

RE POKER..I THINK SOME POEPLE FEEL A BIT MIFFED BECAUSE I DON'T VISIT A LOT OF TABLES OR SPEND TIME WITH EVERYONE …IF THAT'S WHAT'S EXPECTED OF ME I DON'T THINK I'LL GO THERE AT ALL
I'M THERE TO WIN CHIPS AND FEEL SAFE..IT'S NOT A MEET AND GREET AND I WON'T BE THE PERFECT HOST IN ANY WAY…IF I HAD TO CATER TO EVERYONE THAT WOULD BE WORK AND IT WOULD ALSO BE WORK TRYING TO FIGURE OUT HOW I WOULD DO THAT..SO I WILL PLEASE MYSELF..YOU  ARE WELCOME TO PLEASE YOURSELF TOO….

MAYBE I SHOULD DO ANOTHER RADIO RUDEBOX
ANSWERING QUESTIONS FROM YOU ALL

SO IF YOU'VE GOT ANY GOOD ONES PLS POP THEM IN THE BLOG BELOW…
I'M MEGA BUSY BUT I MIGHT BE ABLE TO GET IT TOGETHER….

PLS DON'T ASK ..WHY ARE YOU NOT COMING TO ''FILL IN BLANK"……..?
THE ANSWER IS I DON'T KNOW WHY OR I DON'T WANT TO WORK THAT HARD.
BY GOING EVERYWHERE IN 2006 I ENDED UP IN REHAB
I JUST HAVEN'T  GOT THE KIND OF ENGINE NEEDED TO DO THAT….SORRY IF YOU FEEL LEFT OUT BUT I HAVE TO PROTECT MYSELF
I DIDN'T PLAN THE ROUTE FOR THE TOUR AND I'M NOT PARTICULARLY BOTHERED TO FIGURE OUT WHY I'M NOT IN SUCH AND SUCH A PLACE ….
I GO WHERE I'M POINTED AND INTEND TO ENTERTAIN THE FUCK OUT OF YOU WHILE I'M THERE

MUCH LOVE
