It seems like only yesterday that we met Sam Sparro on a wet, miserable day in London, before we’re on the phone again while he’s in LA.
Somewhere inbetween he’s been lying in the hills in the lower canyon of Hollywood on our hi-glam (exclusive!) photoshoot. And it’s not just us reeling from the results.
“It was good actually, it was definitely a new experience,” says Sam somewhat coyly. “It was really sunny but quite cold… But it ended up being really fun. I liked playing with the vintage loungewear and pool wear.
“I’m definitely a very sexual person, but I’m quite private about it, so to do something that’s more suggestive like that, it was a challenge.”
It’s true though, the genteel Mr Sparro hasn’t been one to indulge in the whole tits out naked celebrity trappings.
“You know what, I was really trying to avoid it. How he [Justin Monroe] got close to me doing it, I don’t know how it happened,” and he gives out the first of many laughs. “I did, and you know what? It was quite liberating in a way. I take myself quite seriously in a lot of ways, I’m always nervous of that sort of thing overshadowing the work.”
