Footy Love With 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.
