Girl in Stereo

“I’ve got her [Betty Boop] painted on my leather jacket. Simon’s got Batman. She’s very sexy, absolutely gorgeous. Almost the perfect woman. Beautiful big eyes. Lovely squeaky voice. It’s quite weird to think she started out life as a cute little dog. Very strange that. Betty’s a bit lacking in self-sufficiency for me. Having said that, she always gets her own way in the proper Betty Boop cartoons. She always wins. She’s always manipulative. I like the idea of Roger Rabbit. If that was true and you could bring characters to life just by drawing them, I could surround myself with cartoon goddesses. I fell in love with Betty the first time I saw her. It was one of those banned cartoons where her dress goes up and you can see her panties. I thought that was really weird. It had nothing to do with the story. The artist obviously just
wanted to show her skirt going up. I was very grateful for that.”
