I can't think of anything I hate more than a former punk - they are the most self-righteous people in the world.
My core belief is that if you're complaining about something for more than three minutes, two minutes ago you should have done something about it.
I am not good at small talk. I will hide in a cupboard to avoid chitty-chat.
In the early '90s, it was grunge; everybody was fully clothed. Alanis Morissette was one of the biggest artists in the world, never wore makeup, wearing Doc Marten boots, and then the Spice Girls turn up, and suddenly it all looks a bit burlesque; suddenly they're the biggest band in the world.
One of the great things about being a writer/journalist is that my boss loves me to go out and do features on being someone else. I did a feature on Kate Middleton, where I went to an incredible fancy state home in the countryside, put on a wedding dress and posed for engagement pictures with a fake Prince William.
