At 65, Iggy Pop is one of those legends for having seen and survived it all, and he's, remarkably, on tour for hist latest album, Apres. The super-sexual Pop (he's rumored to have been David Bowie's lover for a stint) denied some of the rumors in his book The Story of Iggy Pop, but he's not saying he didn't get around. In a Q&A in the New York Times Magazine, Iggy Pop admits that he's known for having had lots and lots of sex. When asked about the rep, he says: "I wish I could have had more.”
When asked how his relationship to his penis has changed, he gives an amazing response: “I would characterize it sort of like a powerful interest group within a political party at this point. It used to be the entire political party.”
