Why does Andrew Ridgeley enjoy crying?
Why is the sun so important to Holly Johnson?
What does Nick Heyward do with all those felt-tip ens? To find out, read on…
- The Spice Of Life —
I Mean in the way that art differs from real life. A Coronation Street kind of existence is alright for some but I’d rather not live like that. I’d rather live my life in a painting than a photograph of a factory.
- Flowers —
All kinds of flowers. Without them the world would be a pretty dull place.
- Music, Books and Films —
For the stimulation of the mind and the soul.
- Alison Moyet —
Just because I think she’s very good.
- French and Saunders —
Because they’re very funny and people need to lauch.
- A new David Bowie album now and again —
It’s one of the little things we need to expect from life.
- No.1 —
I couldn’t go on living without it.
- Hollywood —
For it’s entertainment value and sense of glamour.
- Painters —
People like Duncan Grant, Picasso, Matisse, Andy Warhol, and Michelangelo — all of whom are individuals.
- The Sun —
Not the newspaper. Because it’s the centre of the solar energy and because of the optimism it brings when it comes out of the clouds.
- Glamour —
An absolute essential. Where would we all be without it?
