Happy Birthday, Grimmy!

Turning the big 3-0

Why do we love Nick Grimshaw?

Bessie to the stars (and a slew of former ELLE cover stars: Rita Ora, Pixie Geldof and Lily Allen included), our ELLE Style Awards host (twice in a row), and let's not forget he gets us up in the morning (the Radio 1 Breakfast Show is an everyday must).

To celebrate the 30th birthday of good ol' Grimmy we recall the best bits of our interview with the DJ in last year's December issue of ELLE...

ELLE: If you could only listen to one album for the rest of your life….

NG: The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill by Lauryn Hill. It’s a perfect album.

ELLE: What makes you angry?

NG: Not having carbs for more than four hours.

ELLE: When did you last cry?

NG: During the X Factor. Ever had a hangover and watched the X Factor?

ELLE: Tea or coffee?

NG: Coffee. Black. I am lactose intolerant but love dairy and can’t stop eating it. That makes me cry too.

ELLE: Who is your favourite popstar?

NG: Miley Cyrus, she is hilarious. For me, the worst thing about her is that she didn’t scrape her tongue before sticking it out at the VMAs.

ELLE: Who would you like to play you in a film of your life?

NG: Jack Nicholson.

ELLE: What did you do last night?

NG: Forced Justin Timberlake to sing Happy Birthday to one of our friends. We all joined in but later JT asked said friend if he could sing it to her again because ‘Alexa [Chung] and Grimmy’s voices are really flat and ruined it for me.’

ELLE: What’s the meaning of life?

NG: To have a laugh, innit.
