Need To Know: Sally Shapiro
By Jason Lamphier
How long have you known this?
Since high school.
You never mentioned this when we talked last time.
You didn�t ask.
Have you dated a woman?
That is also too personal. I can say I am more of a novice in the woman�s side than in the man�s side.
Do you think you�ll ever write about getting into a relationship with a woman in your music?
I hope I will. And with some of the lyrics, I think you can imagine what you want. It�s not out of the question.
Have you written a song yet with a woman in mind?
Well, they are not on the record.
Do you think we�ll ever hear it?
No, because it is not good enough.
Is Johan still never allowed in the room when you record the vocals for the songs?
No. When I recorded the first songs, he had to really persuade me to do it, but now he doesn�t really have to persuade me. Now I do it because I want to do it. He is forbidden to come in, but sometimes he does it and then I stop singing. But it doesn�t feel as bad as it did in the beginning.
If you were to perform live, what do you think a Sally Shapiro show would look like? How do you envision it?
I have envisioned it in different ways. When I first thought about it, I thought it would be more of a show, with male dancers in tight pants and a lot of hair pointing every way, dancing in a very �80s way. Now I think if I do a show, it would be calmer, probably just Johan and me with a movie in the background -- not so dance-y.
Speaking of the new album, what is your guilty pleasure?
A year ago I would�ve said disco, but now it�s musicals and movies. Hugh Grant movies -- like, I�ll watch them three times in a row.
What�s you�re favorite Hugh Grant movie?
I like Notting Hill. It�s fantastic, the best one. But then I also like Music and Lyrics.
With Drew Barrymore, right?
Yes, I could say I have a crush on Drew Barrymore.
My Guilty Pleasure is now available digitally and in stores. For more info on Sally Shapiro, check out their website.
