Robyn: "My Hair Has Always Been Fly"

Robyn's "Handle Me" single will be released this Monday in the U.K., and Metro ran a naughty interview with her yesterday wherein she says the most ridiculous promotional thing she's done was a radio gig with the Spice Girls when her first album came out in Britain 10 years ago ("I didn't dig any of them."), and that "my hair has always been fly. I've never had any hair problems."

Sexy! I've actually had problems with Robyn's hair, though -- she looks too much like the first boy who ever handled me. Anyway, here's Robyn getting feisty when asked about Britney Spears (and what lame question):

You worked with producer Max Martin. So did Britney Spears. What advice would you give her?
None. I have no opinions about her life. It’s ignorant to think that just because we had one thing in common, we’d be similar people. People deal with their lives in different ways. It could happen to anybody. People shave their hair off every day but when she does it, it gets in the news. It’s really nothing special.

Here's the "Handle Me" video, where Robyn looks très Edie Sedgwick:

    Robyn being discussed on a blog? Surely not! I believe history has just been made.

    Apparently (and I can't remember if this was already covered on a blog) Robyn does backing vocals on Britney's "Piece Of Me"--the song's by Swedes (including her collaborator Klas Ahlund) and her backing vocals were used on the demo, and they just kept them for the final thing.

    Knowing that, she's actually pretty easy to pick out from the song...assuming what I think is her is her!

    As long as "Be Mine!" is a hit, I'll be happy.

    I recently threw out some "Music Week" mags from the late nineties and to my surprise I found that this Robyn had released a couple of singles back then. So I take it she's in her late 40s or so...

    Even more shocking, I've got 2 singles of hers that had some fab remixes by "Twin".

    Is she a blonde dyke incarnation of Björk?

    oops i feel guilty saying she had flopped - i thought her single was physically out already! She is doing better than i thought :P

    Brady, show me love.

    PG, had no idea about that, but I took a walk and listened to it after you posted this comment, and I can totally hear her. You only hear her "you want a piece of me" clearly once, then it's distorted the rest of the time... thanks for the info!

    Mobius, how very dare you! Robyn's gonna come to your house and pop-and-lock outside your bedroom window if you don't stop razzing him!

    Paul, quit trying to make Robyn flopping happen.

    I'm not feeling this song, but I do like her hair.

    No, if we could only do something about Mel C.'s hair... It's SO Basia influenced!

    What's mind-boggling to me is that she's kept that SAME HAIR since 1997. !?!??!?! I loved it then though - I swear she reminded me so much of T-Boz, especially her early black&white promo pix, which if I recall correctly is part of the reason she piqued my interest... Kind of like how All Saints' Shaznay's rapping sounded very similar to Left-Eye (on helium, which is pretty severe)
