EBERT: Hypercolor [that brand of clothes that changed color as you changed temperature] was dope. It’s hard to find. [The fabric stopped changing color if you washed it in water that was too hot, so there aren’t many pieces left that still work.]
ANDERSON: You know what I’d love to find? A pair of LA Gears with the lights on the sole.
What about your hair? I read somewhere that you were no longer “rocking the mullet-fishbowl hybrid” thing. It’s still kind of mullet-y . . .
EBERT:The mullet fishbowl was a haircut I had for the first record. It felt kind of prince-y — not Prince the artist, just any kind of prince. It felt regal, and I just like that, so it remains in some kind of form. I cut it myself with scissors.
Do you have stage costumes? Would you wear today’s outfit onstage?
EBERT: No. I would never wear shorts onstage ’cause of the whole dancing thing. A guy in shorts dancing onstage just doesn’t look that dope. Girls dancing in shorts? Now, that’s the best . . . Hmmm, for some reason, dancing in shorts is starting to sound bad-good to me now. I just haven’t pushed that part of my envelope yet . . . but I’m sure I will at some point.?
