With hits like 'Kids in America' and 'You came' we grew up. Now the Eighties icon Kim Wilde is back with her new album 'Come out and play' - a 'great thing', like she says in the interview with Grazia. We think it's true.
Why a comeback?
I couldn't live with just the old successes. When you have a passion for something, you can't suppress it for long.
But for some years we didn't hear anything from you.
I have tried to not make music for a while. My creativity went into the garden. I have studied horticulture.
Did your style change?
Not really. Fortunately I didn't really get into the Eighties style myself. I was always a jeans and t-shirts girl.
Do you still have old outfits?
No, I have given most of them to charity. Why should I keep them when I can help others with them?
Do you miss something?
There's one item I would love to have back: the black and white stripey top from the video to 'Kids in America'.
