Cautionary Wife Posted February 2, 2007 Share Posted February 2, 2007 TRANSCRIPT by Cautionary Wife GMTV 2 February 2007 8.35-9.25am Entertainment Today Jenni Falconer and Michael Underwood chat to Mika - with a live performance by Mika and his band of Grace Kelly JENNI FALCONER: Well before all that, itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Mika time. MIKA: No, looks good though. JF: And congratulations, and for anyone that doesnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t know, MikaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s gone to number one, but you went to number one before your single was even released in the shops. M: Yeah, I was very lucky. JF: On downloads alone. M: On downloads alone. I mean I was kind of fostered by the internet and the blogsphere, so, you know, itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s testament to the fact that the internet has a lot of influence nowadays. JF: Fantastic. MICHAEL UNDERWOOD: We know the Press has been going wild for you at the moment. I read in the papers this morning, is it true, have you let slip that youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re gonna be playing Glastonbury. Is this the case? M: I let it slip Ã¢â‚¬â€œ yeah, I kind of announced it WAY before I was supposed to, but, yeah, IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m not very used to, you know, keeping my mouth shut. (giggles) JF: Okay, well, maybe you can also shed some light Ã¢â‚¬â€œ are you also supporting Take That on their European tour? M: I, you know, IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve never heard anything about that. JF: That would be a good one, I think. M: I didnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t, I didnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t know anything about that. MU: How do you feel about the whole thing Ã¢â‚¬â€œ the whole media circus, Ã¢â‚¬Ëœcos itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s just gone crazy. I mean from your point of view, whatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s it like? M: Well, itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s happened quite quickly. I think thatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s the thing IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m having to get used to because itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s kind of accelerated very quickly. I donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t know. The whole thing feels very unreal, I have to be honest. I donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t even feel like Grace Kelly is, you know, whatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s happening with Grace Kelly doesnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t even feel real to me. JF: Well, what gets me is Grace Kelly is the only single that weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve heard of yourÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s yet, yet your tour, which youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re doing later this month has sold out. YouÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve actually even had to get bigger places to play because Ã¢â‚¬Â¦ theyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve only heard one single. M: Well, no, a lot of people have heard more. Some people Ã¢â‚¬Ëœcos they come and discover me through the internet and the way they found out about me Ã¢â‚¬Ëœcos of reading about me, I was just kind of here immediately and got my songs, but weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re keeping the venues small. WeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re not going too big because I think, you know, I disliked it in the past when IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve bought tickets to a show and suddenly it was a different show to the one I wanted to go to, so weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re keeping it small and it should be fun - a kind of good carnival atmosphere. JF: Well if anyone does go, theyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re gonna hear your FULL selection of songsÃ¢â‚¬Â¦ M: Yeah. JF: But this morning, youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re performing the one that IS top of the charts at the moment Ã¢â‚¬â€œ Grace Kelly. M: Yes, I am. JF: So, weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll leave it to you to take it away. MU: Take up positions. M: Thank you. JF: Here is Mika with Grace Kelly. <Performs GRACE KELLY> JF: Aw, that was fantastic and I must ask, did your trousers stay up? M: Yes they stayed up. They keep on falling off. JF: His trousers keep falling down, thatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s because you donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t wear a belt. (laughing) Anyway, thank you very much. M: Cheers. JF: ThatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Grace Kelly, which was released on Monday and MikaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s album Ã¢â‚¬ËœLife In Cartoon MotionÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ is out on next week. Thank you so much for coming in. M: No problem.
