Cultural Life: James Blunt, singer

I recently read ‘A Million Little Pieces’ by James Frey. I have mixed feelings towards rehab – one side of me thinks it’s a gap year for the privileged, and another side has seen its benefits for very dear friends. The book itself has been accused of being made up of lies – but then that’s what addicts do.

Music

I’ve just had three weeks in Ibiza, so I’ve been in the clubs. The track I remember hearing most this summer was the Mark Knight & Funkagenda mix of ‘Man with the Red Face’. Another track that has been fun to hear is Pete Tong’s mix of my song ‘1973’.

Visual arts

When our tour hit Bilbao in northern Spain earlier this year, I dropped into the Guggenheim. I think it’s one of the best modern-art museums in the world. Louise Bourgeois’ spiders are amazing, and the big dog outside made of flowers is enough to keep anyone confused.

Television

We’ve been on the ‘All the Lost Souls’ World Tour since January, so I haven’t had a chance to watch any TV. We sleep in bunks on the bus, but maybe once a week we check in to a hotel. Then we can watch CNN for what’s going on in the world.

James Blunt plays at the O2 arena, London SE10 (0844 856 0202) on 14 October

Back in April, when the raid on a Texan polygamist compound dominated the news (weren’t those the days!), those aggrieved Fundamentalist Latter-Day Saints wives’ prominent hairdos became a subject of much fascination. Were they meant to indicate closeness to God? To wash one’s husband’s feet in the afterlife? To distract from those hideous dresses?

Now they reemerge in October issues of Vogue and W, which interpret the mega-bouffants for the stylish luxury consumer (i.e. pair them with Dior). We’re not sure what the W model has been doing with that shirtless guy in the background, but we’re guessing she wasn’t washing his feet …
