*This* is why VV Brown rules. I saw her at the Brits launch last week and not only she did remember that I'd interviewed her and bounded over to tell me how lovely I was (I'm a cheap date), she was also wearing 5-inch heels which made her an approximately 7 foot 15 pop goddess. (Yes, I am a little bit in love with her.)
Hello. I'm Jude Rogers and I write features and reviews and do interviews with pop culture's great and good (and bad) for Q, the Observer, The Guardian, the BBC, The Quietus, Red, Elle, In Style and Wire, and broadcast on Radio 2, 5 Live and 6 Music, as well as occasionally pop up on BBC4 and Vintage TV. I also co-edit London love-letter fanzine Smoke: A London Peculiar, My Band T-Shirt and lecture at London Metropolitan University. I have been made a cup of tea by Robert Plant and Tony Benn (not at the same time), a large whisky-soda by Tulisa, shared beers with Guy Garvey and Cat Power (and watched her go for a wee), sushi with Adele, a Pret salad with Bjork, Bratwursts with James Blunt (not an euphemism) and had a proper barney with Ben Goldacre, as well as been serenaded by Randy Newman. Wipe your feet on the way in, please, put the kettle on, or, if you'd rather, e-mail me here.
