It’s perfect timing, considering his Culture Vulture is in the OK! on newsstands now. Psst … this is what you won’t find in the magazine.
The pop icon, 37, who wed Barrett in 2003, is dad to sons Griffin, 2, and Rhys, one month.
Favorite thing to collect?
Money. No, I’m kidding. I know you’re going to put that down. It’s too late. I let it out now. [laughs] I can’t throw things away. I’m not a pack rat, but I like papers and receipts. Meaningful receipts, like my wife and I’s first date, or a cool dinner with friends. I have receipts from dinners from 10-15 years ago that I can’t let go of. There’s nothing better than going out to eat, and you look at the date, you have the date there, it’s all printed out, you remember what you ate, you remember where you were. It’s fun.
Favorite family activity?
Disneyland is pretty cool. Just the fact that you’re going to Disneyland is fun. Just saying you’re going is a good time.
He’s radical and he’s tough, but I like Alec Baldwin. He speaks his mind, and I’m sure he’s definitely a lefty. He’s very liberal – not that I’m not liberal – I’m definitely a Democrat. But other than that, he speaks his mind, he’s funny, and he’s a great actor. I admire his honesty.
My favorite album would be U2’s All That You Can’t Leave Behind. That was an amazing album, and for them to be still doing what they do – that was almost ten years ago, that album – but it’s still so fresh. That was a great album.
Definitely in my top three is a movie called Midnight Run with Robert De Niro and Charles Grodin. It’s a road movie. It’s hilarious and funny, and it’s got a little bit of everything and a lot of one-liners. That I like.
