But there's still that pesky two percent, and Alison is happy to share with Spinner some of the strange questions she's recently been asked, as she and bandmate Will Gregory promote the upcoming Goldfrapp album 'Head First,' out March 23 on Mute Records.
"I got asked by an Australian guy if I had sex to my own music," Goldfrapp tells Spinner. "I said no, just so you know my response. In fact, I don't like having sex to music -- that's definitely a no-no. It kind of makes me sick."
Sexual questions are one thing, but insulting questions are in a category of their own. Needless to say, Alison was a bit peeved when one interviewer flat-out called her old. "Someone asked me the other day: 'So, Lady Gaga is very young, and you are very old. How do you still find the passion to make music?' And I thought, well, 'OK, I'll fake this one.' So yes, people can be quite blunt," Goldfrapp says.
Additionally, Goldfrapp tells Spinner she's noticed a difference between the British music press and their American counterparts. "I think Europeans can be quite rude," she says. "There's definitely a difference between British and American press, but I can't quite put my finger on what it is, except to say that the Brits and the Europeans really are a bit ruder, which can be good and bad."
