Iggy: age­ing rocks stars look ter­ri­ble

7 Days in Dubai - - CELEBRITY FIX -

Iggy Pop ad­mits some of his rock con­tem­po­raries are start­ing to look a bit ridicu­lous. The 69-year-old punk leg­end said rock stars are re­fus­ing to grow old grace­fully and he too, con­fessed he has no de­sire to adopt a more con­ser­va­tive sense of style. Iggy said: “You do no­tice this gen­eral de­crepi­tude that I’m as guilty of as any. I will do a gig and my wife, who’s more flu­ent with elec­tronic de­vices, will show me a guy say­ing, ‘It’s time for this man to put on a shirt!’ Well, I don’t want to put on a shirt. I want to ex­press my­self with­out a shirt.” Asked if men in show­biz now face the same pres­sures as women to look good, the 69-year-old: “The men all look pretty ter­ri­ble and old, so it doesn’t seem to be a prob­lem. Here’s what I started try­ing to do: around the time I hit 60, I thought it is im­por­tant to re­sem­ble your­self.”
