Favorites is our recurring video series on the personal preferences of the pop artists who inspire us. Because the artists we love love stuff too.
It’s impossible to hang out with Beth Ditto, Hannah Billie and Nathan “Brace” Paine — that’s Gossip, if you’re nasty — and not get the pants charmed off you. (Luckily, we wore a skirt to our recent interview with the threesome, narrowly avoiding an embarrassing pantless subway commute home.) While they’re out on the road promoting their latest LP, A Joyful Noise out Tuesday (May 22) on Columbia, we got the indie pop rockers chatting about the things that makes this world a “Perfect World” for them.
Aaliyah, KitchenAids, clawfoot tubs and trashy reality TV all topped the list, and much hilarity ensued. So here’s our challenge to you: After you watch Gossip hash out their favorites in the video above, take a glance south and see if you’ve managed to keep on your trousers. Because, like we said, totally charming. (You can pre-order A Joyful Noise now).
