Santogold: Your Questions Answered.

You're lucky. Ms White was suffering a bit when we caught up with her following a rather successful album launch party. She did miss out a few of your questions (you pesky sorts that tried to get her to answer a batch of questions, rather than one), though she was good enough to answer the following:

Q Hi Santi, loved the L.E.S Artistes video. Just wanted to ask, whats up with the whole horse thing? I see Mariah Carey is rocking the white horse look in her latest vid. Is she biting your style or what? (from Luke)

A I LOVE horses! I think they're so beautiful, and I recently discovered this allergy medicine called Claritin that makes me not so allergic so I can actually get on one. When I was listening to the song trying to come up with a video concept, I just got this regal image of me on a horse with a super blank stare, kind of like a talking photo, flanked by these stoic beautiful figures. And Mariah... .I haven't seen her video, but I'm not too worried about any sort of idea overlap there : ) .

Q Hey Santi, of all the people you've written songs for are there any, in retrospect, you wished you kept for yourself? (from JonClaude )

A No. When I write for other people it comes from a total different place. I'm really there to support someone else's art, so it's not as creative a process for me. I'm way more connected to my own songs.

Q What sort of a diet leaves you spewing up glitter? And as a follow-up, have you ever been to see a specialist about it? I reckon it's pretty serious... (from Kev)

A I'm not throwing up glitter dude. Everything that comes out of my mouth is gold. Don't you get it?

Q What is your favourite flavour of Ben & Jerry's ice cream? Mine's Chunky Monkey! (from James)

A I don't like Ben and Jerry's. It's too sweet and ice cream gives me gas. But if I had to choose a favourite, it would be Hagan Daaz Coffee Chip ice cream.

Q LOVE your album Santi! My question is, though: What's the meaning of life? (from A. CUZT )

A To end up somewhere other than where you started.

So there we go, your questions answered.
