Booty Luv

I can't pretend there's any great inspiration or art that goes into writing questions for pop interviews. Sometimes all that needs to be done is to sit for a while, letting an artist's name or the name of their song roll over your tongue a few times while you think of puns. Where there IS an element of expertise is in making sure you're not asking questions which make you look bad to the person you're interviewing. This is especially true when the band's name is as explicit as Booty Luv. Anything that suggests sexual malarkey or an appreciation of back-end curves - while hilarious in theory - could be kind of hard to explain away when your star interviewee wonders aloud what kind of pervert you are, and if you're setting a bad example for any teenagers listening...

So, keeping to the nice, responsible, safe ground, I decided to use this interview as an opportunity to find out a bit more about a topic that will be dear to the hearts of at least 50% of the people reading this...shoes (boot-y luv, see?).

However, I did not reckon on Nadia and Cherise bringing along Cherise's dog, or that Cherie's dog would try and muscle in on the conversation, even though we all know that dog's don't wear shoes. They eat them.

What I Expected: Ladies, I can't lie. I'm male. We don't get the shoe thing. We're interested cos you're interested. We'd like to be supportive, but there's only so far a man can go into the psychological Nest Of Hell which is a woman and her shoes without appearing to be either entirely naive and a bit simple - to women - or scarily obsessed with ladyfeet - to the world at large.

What I Did Not Expect: Honestly, who brings a yappy dog to a telephone interview? That's just mad.

    im a girl and i dont get the whole shoe thing either, though i do find it hilarious as some girls have more shoes or handbags then they do brain cells. i have 2 pairs of converse (one black, one blue), walking boots, wellies (i live on a farm) and the ones i wore to my yr 11 leavers ball...i do need some 'decent' shoes though..argh i HATE shoe shopping! i cant walk in heels, theyre so impractical. and i have even less handbags as i dont own one, oh except for my leavers ball one again. i have my school bag and another bag that i take out when i go 2 birmingham or whatever....when did pockets go out of fashion? theyre there so use them! im gonna shut up now as i run the risk of sounding like a guy. put it this way...money is much better invested in cds, dvds, ps2 games (ps3 is way to expensive) and gig tickets etc.

    Lol okay I'll believe you then.. this time!

    I have a pair of converse. And some leather converse trainers which are the comfiest. And running trainers. And then I have like.. all the pretty shoes. None of which are practical but all of which I would snap an ankle for.

    Pockets went out of fashion when fashion started making it so you could fit nothing in them!

    I don't spend too much on shoes though. Sales are my happiness. Leaves plenty money for dvds and xbox360 games :P I LOVE the thing.

    Other way around!

    Life is a pair of shoes... it stars out uncomfy and like shoes you gotta wear it in a bit so that it starts to feel like your own and doesn't give you . And then just as you get it all perfectly comfy the sole falls off and it starts to leak.

    so are you saying you value your shoes more than your ankles? okkk, i dont care if i sound like a guy now (just cus i may not have an obsession with shoes so i sound like a guy that DOESNT make me rik waller so dont try calling me that) as thats just wierd! i really dont understad it!....and pretty shoes....who cares! theyre jus gonna get muddy or something! one pair of decent or pretty shoes should be enough. have you seen that advert with the shoe synapse or whatever it is?...mines missing, and i couldnt be happier about it! :P

    and ok, fashion has changed pocket size but i cant say im one to really follow the fashions that much, i wear what i like....oh no, even more evidence to say im like a guy! :O im not gonna mention my liking of sports then.....

    Hey since when did I say you were a guy?! :P the ankle thing is just an expression.. you know like "omgosh that's to die for!" "shoes worth breaking an ankle for".. I'm very anti-pain really!

    I follow the good fashions. As in the ones that don't involve super skinny jeans and weird dress-like things. The last couple years have been so odd fashion wise. Madness.

    Kerri I think you are referring to the 'slingback synapse'. Oh no, now I sound like a girl! I'm gonna go now and lift some weights, punch someone, spit or something else equally manly. Cos I'm a man and thats what us men do, grr!

  10. At 02:16 PM on 12 May 2007, Kerri wrote:

    kat, one persons good fashion is another persons nightmare, same with music really...not that i dont agree with you, fashion is odd :) and i know you didnt meant it about youre ankles..gessh if you did that really would be wierd, scary wierd....loosing weight to become size 0 so you can get payed to be on a tv documentary wierd.

    and jamie, maybe you payed just a little too much attension to that advert for your own good! be careful when you go punch who ever youre gonna punch, you might break a nail! and we wouldnt want that now, would we?... ;P

  11. At 03:37 PM on 12 May 2007, Kat wrote:

    I know what you mean but it would be nice if they didn't have to change everything every time fashions change. If they have the kind of jeans I like one year I buy a ton of them because I know I'll probably find none I like the next year kinda thing.

    yeah cheers for the advice Kerri I'll be sure to be care. . . hey wait a minute! i see what you've done there! lol.

    It's not that particular advert, I really like adverts. I sometimes just watch TV for the adverts. I wish there was an advert channel. Ooh, I might take that idea on dragons den, see what they think?

    is there an illness which has advert obsession as a symptom? if so id be worried, go and see your doctor maybe....

    I dunno, you do get some pretty cool adverts!

    'they're all rubbish' how dare you! take it back erri! (just messin') they don't make them like they used to, lol.
