Esquire interview

27 Dec, 2013

Astbury talks about the public’s perception of him as an enigma:

Really? It’s strange because I don’t objectify myself. I hate looking at pictures of myself, they’re usually awful. As you get older, it’s just, “Aww…” The last videos we did, Honey from a Knife, we’re not even in it! And for the Animals video, we’re only in a cameo. The most important thing for us is putting our music out there. The idea of being icons, I think it’s great when you’re 24. It’s fantastic. I much prefer being in the studio or on stage and staying out of the mainstream really. Adam Levine is good at that.
