What do people most want to know about their favourite pop stars? Their top five production hints? Their ‘seminal musical influences’? Not ruddy likely! What people really want to know is who they fancy. Bev Hillier asked lots of v. famous people how they’d rate each other in the pin-up stakes, the blokes on this page and the amazin’ rock ‘n’ roll ladies’ over the page…
About Kim Wilde
I don’t know what do say about her. She looks great in her short tight black leather mini-skirt. A bit too tough for me – a hard woman I think.
I like Kim Wilde. I find her voice sexy and she’s quite attractive. I’ve met her before and we got on alright. She’s quite friendly and jovial. She’s also got a little puppy fat but as I said I don’t mind chubby girls.
Mmmm. She’s got a very nice mouth. Mmmm.
She went through a strange period of wearing rubber clothes – I wasn’t impressed. She has a mouth like Brigitte Bardot and reminds me of her a little. Is she a born blonde or bottle blonde? I think she should loosen up and be herself.
Kim Wilde about…
Which one is he? They’re both quite cute (as in teddy bears as opposed to Ryan O’Neal). They look like brothers. Their ‘Mad World’ single was great – so was ‘Shout’. He’s obviously very talented and it’s great to see them slaying them in America.
When ‘Favourite Shirts’ came out I went straight out and bought it, it had a really fresh sound. I really like the LP ‘Pelican West’ and Nick’s cool charm, of course. I’m just waiting for the next song now.
Well, I’m waiting to hear something he does that I like. Paul reminds me of this person I know which is rather unfortunate, ’cause he’s a real pain. Paul, however, has never cause me any real grief – yet!
I had a dream about him once and I really like him for a day after that, but I’m afraid it ended all too soon and left me feeling rather indifferent. I wouldn’t be seen dead wearing some of the clothes Paul Weller wears. I haven’t bought any Style Council records, but I used to buy a lot of Jam records.
I met him at a Pop Quiz thing once and he knew everything which was quite good as I was on his team.
