This is why we love The Cure’s Robert Smith

If you haven’t seen the clip of Robert Smith’s deadpan response to an American reporter’s question about their Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction, you should know that it’s been viewed more than eight million times.

As reader Michael points out, this encapsulates the difference between American and British celebrity sensibilities perfectly.

    I’m actually quite impressed with the interviewer, she’s clearly caught off guard but she rallies and keeps going.

    Congrats to The Cure for being such fantastic lads.
