T-shirt avoider Mark Ronson has the spirit of an 80-year-old man.
The 34-year-old music producer rented a Cadillac car when he first passed his driving test, but admits that his choice of vehicle could have been more daring.
“When I got my license I leased a Cadillac, because my inner driving spirit is that of an 80-year-old man. You always see old people in America driving them really slowly because they’re so uncomfortable. It’s like being in a hovercraft.”
Mark also revealed he is scared of performing live because he fears people will shout expletives at him if he messes up: “All I expect is for someone to yell out, ‘You’re a f***ing w****r!’ You do have that fear, it comes from the same place that makes me shake uncontrollably before I go on stage. I think it’s partly nerves, but it’s partly what keeps you on your toes.”
Although Mark has dated a string of beautiful women, including British model Daisy Lowe, he doubts his ability to seduce females that he finds attractive.
He told Esquire: “I’ve never been the kind of person out on the prowl bedding different girls every night. I went through a two-week phase, but it was really awful. The “man about town” thing is so cliched—I’d hate to think that I was subscribing to any idea of what someone in my position should be like. There’s also the slight problem that the type of girl I go for would be way less likely to like me because I’m Mark Ronson. They’d much rather be talking to a Klaxon in the corner.”
Amy Winehouse was too high on drugs to record a proposed James Bond theme song.
The “Rehab” singer - who teamed up with producer Mark Ronson for the Quantum of Solace title track in 2008 - allegedly ruined the collaboration by partying too hard at the recording studio. Amy’s estranged husband Blake Fielder-Civil told Britain’s The Sun newspaper: “It just turned into an excuse for a wild drink and drugs party. She wasn’t concentrating on work.”
