You Must Watch This: Roisin Murphy on MTV Logo


My pals at MTV Logo invited Roisin Murphy to their studios to present their weekly NewNowNext music show in the last week of December. With all the holiday festivities at the end of the year you might have forgotten to tune in and see a really fun interview with Roisin interspersed with music videos.

Watch the entire show here. Some out outtakes:

Roisin about fashion: "I guess I'm playful with clothing. It's not connected to my music. It is just another creative outlet for me."

Roisin about dance music: "I love dance music. It is the mainstream kind of music that embraces new technology."

Roisin about having so many gay fans: "I don't like to ruminate on it. It's like putting people with a certain sexuality in a box, in one market. I find that a little distasteful to be honest.

Roisin about her music in strange places: "I have a song called 'Pure Pleasureseeker' that is used as the theme music for a TV show about gay animals (. . .) There's gay activity in the animal kingdom and they do it to my music!"

You gotta love her wit and dry humor. Irish through and through.

That's MY Roisin talking! Nice to have the old girl back for a quip. And she's absolutely right to not play into the "gay icon" trap. After all, it's 2009 now and a great audience is a great audience, full stop.
