Brody Dalle–ex-Distillers, ex-Spinnerette and the current Mrs. Josh Homme–gave this interview to Vice. It’s called “Body Dalle Mother Shitballs Fuck Bush.”
It only takes a quick Google of Brody Dalle’s hairstyles in the early 2000s to know that she was born to slay demons and write the fuck out of songs. After gobbing her way through rock’n’roll in the Distillers, she’s been away for a bit, having two children with her husband Josh Homme. We sat down with her to find out what else she’s been up to:
Noisey: Where have you been for the last three years?
Brody: I have grown another human and birthed him. And then I made a record.
I’ve only heard a handful of songs from it, but they all sound like you’re saying “don’t mess with me”.
Yeah. Don’t fuck with me.
Do you still have the “Fuck Off” tattoo on your shoulder?
Ages ago, in an interview with The Face, you said that you regretted it, which was sad.
I probably just told the interviewer that. I think there’s always an appropriate time for fuck off, fuck you, get fucked, go the fuck away, you know what I mean? I don’t regret it at all. People make fun of it so my kid asked me, what does that mean? And I was like, shhh. Camille [her daughter, who’s eight] can’t read it because it’s kind of blurry now. I’m like, it says ‘back off’. I’d be naïve to think my daughter isn’t going to tell someone to fuck off one day. It’s important to tell people to fuck off.
She’s going to find out what it says.
She will find out. She’s no stranger to swear words, I tell you. And it’s not because of me, it’s because of little girls at her school. She came home and she asked me, “mom, what does motherfucker mean?” No shit.
Keep reading. It’s good.
