READ

I don’t understand hip-hop. I think it’s an age thing. Hip-hop came along just as I stopped buying music and going to clubs. I really don’t understand it. Most of my friends aren’t into it either. My sons are. They love it. They’re into the fashion and the music. They never seem to stop dancing to it. When I went to America, I took them to an exhibition on hip-hop. It’s an important part of America’s culture now. It’s also a unique aspect of America’s cultural history. Many people thought hip-hop was a passing fashion; that something would replace it. The truth is quite different. Hip-hop has almost become mainstream. You know when that happens because everyone else in the world tries to copy it. Hip-hop is huge all over the world.
