Jarvis Cocker Says Fame Is Kind of Like Pornography

Jarvis Cocker Says Fame Is Kind of Like Pornography, Shop Ticket Snatchers

Jarvis
Cocker
gave quite the graphic analogy in a new interview.
During a chat withThe
Sunday Times
, the Pulp frontman compared fame to
pornography. And honestly, it makes perfect sense.

“It was a very strange time for me because I’d achieved my
lifetime’s ambition and then found that it didn’t satisfy
me,†he said when reflecting on the celebrity that followed
Pulp’s 1995 hit “Common People.â€

He continued by saying fame “reminded me of pornography. Of
how pornography takes an amazing thing – love between two people
expressed physically – and kind of grosses it out.â€

The time was a confusing one for Cocker, who recalled
thinking â€œWhat am I gonna believe in now?â€

He clearly figured it out though, because 25 years later and the
56-year-old is still making music. On Saturday, Cocker shared
“Save
The Whale
,†the latest offering off his upcoming solo album
(under the moniker JARV
IS
), Beyond the Pale. The album was slated to arrive in May but
was
delayed
due to the coronavirus pandemic. It’s now scheduled
to come out on July 17 via Rough Trade. Aside from the latest
single, Cocker has also shared â€œMust
I Evolve?
†and “House
Music All Night Long
†from the project.
