Becky Posted July 31, 2007 Share Posted July 31, 2007 I saw Mika on the front cover so I had to buy it:naughty: Sorry if it's been posted. TH: Hi Mika! What the best thing about summer? M: The best thing about summer is how it totally transforms the city, it turns London into a completely different place and suddenly people smile and they're actuallynice to each other. It's amazing the effect it has on people. TH: How would you spend a perfect summer day? M: I would go to the park with my friends and just linger doing absolutly nothingnext to one of the big ponds, and then end up at the pub until closing time. That's exactly what I've done this week! TH: What would you take in your picnic? M: You know what? I'm quite a fan of Marks and Spencer. Anything you don't have to do anything to, just open it and it's there. I'm not a big fan of drinking in the summer 'cos it just kind of gets to your head and you end up falling asleep. I'm into the idea od renting a dog for a couple of days, how about that? Rentadog.com! I'd like a labradoodle please! TH: But you said your perfectday would be doing nothing! M: Oh no, that's okay, doing stuff for dogs is much more rewarding than doing stuff for humans. I'd just watch it run around [laughs]. It's much more rewarding than a tamagotchi anyway. TH: What tunes soundtrack the summer for you? M: There's nothing better than old Motown records. Loud enough for the whole park to hear, big Lebanese-style picnics. Burn a whole in the grass with your barbeque from B&Q [laughs] TH: Are you going to any festivals this summer? M: I will be going to most of the festivals in the world as I am performing at them. TH: What's your festival attire? M: Lots of Converse. Never wear white because you look awful within and hourbut wear lots of hats and accessories. You can wear things to a festival that you couldn't wear down to your high street without looking stupid. TH: Are you goog at putting up a tent? M: I'm absolutely rubbish at putting up a tent. I'm also the worst person to set up camp with 'cos I always want to be quiet and everyone stays up making noise at four o'clock in the morning. Who would have thought that would ever happen at a festival? They should have silent policies like at Bestival, they have quiet zones and you get thrown out for making too much noise, it's brilliant. TH: Have you ever fallen over in the mud? M: Oh yeah, big time. Not at a festival though. I managed to skip pretty much every rugby game at my school and by the time I actually got to one they decided to give me the initiation which involved me lying on the floor in the mud with everyone putting one foot on my back and I had to stay for 15 minutes. I couldn't breathe, I had it going up my nose. TH: Have you ever had a surfing disaster? M: Yes actually I have, I was convinced I was being followed by a shark but it was actually a piece of rubber-like tyre that was floating [laughs] It was about three years ago. I started screaming, running out of the water: 'Shark! There's a shark!' Then I realised it was a tyre. TH: Oh. Are you good at building sandcastles? M: Yeah, I love doing that. You have to build it in just the right place, if you go too dry it falls apart and you go too wet then it's just a big disaster, it's all about choosing the right spot. TH: What do you get up to on holiday? M: I love driving around, but I don't know my way around so I bring a friend who does. There's nothing better than a good road trip with a healthy credit card, it's a very liberating experience. Preferebly someone else's credit card. Quickfire questions: Ice Cream or Ice Lolly? Lolly, you can have as many as you want and get all hyperactive. By the Pool or By The Sea? Swimming pool. I hate fish, I get freaked out by it all, even though a shark is not a fish it's a mammal. Oh no, I've just been told that's wrong. A whale is a mammal, a dolphin is a mammal and a shark is a fish and that's why I hate them! Summer Days or Summer Nights? Summer afternoons Barbeque On The Beach or Picnic In The Park? Picnic In The Park Speedos or Shorts? Shorts definitely, too much information with Speedos!
