Kate Moss Turns Music Critic, Reviews New George Michael Album
The model listened to a preview of new record 'Symphonica'...
Is Kate Moss swapping the model life for a career as a music critic? If her recent efforts are anything to go by the answer might be yes, as the 40-year-old model has penned a music review of George Michael’s latest album, Symphonica.
“Like many of my generation, I grew up with his music - his was the first album I ever had, when I was about eight and it feels like he has always been part of my life,” she revealed in her review for Vogue magazine.
Kate also divulges that when she was 12 – just two years before a model scout discovered her in an airport – she failed to get tickets to Michael’s last gig with Wham!, his former band. “I was on the phone for hours and hours, but I still didn't get one. I was so upset that I just cried,” she recalled.
Little did Kate know that by the time she was an adult, she would be good friends with the singer and, in fact, she kicks off her review by revealing that George hand-delivered to her a copy of the new album.
Going through the album track by track, the supermodel admits that one song, You’ve Changed, “almost makes me cry” while another, Let Her Down Easy, “just touches me and it feels incredibly personal and emotional.”
The review also sheds light on her relationship with hubby Jamie Hince, of indie band The Kills, who, she explains, walks in while she’s listening to the record.
“Jamie says that the strings and the horns and arrangements throughout this album are so brilliantly balanced that he loves the way it's produced and sounds,” Kate writes.
But the model admits: “I don't hear that, I just hear George.”
