Pixie Geldof's secret love

Not the obvious choice

We love a weird crush. And when we interviewed Pixie Geldof for our August 2013 cover story, her confession didn’t disappoint: "EMINEM – he is the love of my life."

It's not that we don't admire Eminem ourselves, more that self-confessed country-music lover Pixie would be a sucker for an angry rapper. Well, we were wrong. "He was the first person that I listened to who inspired my life. The first music that I really chose for myself. I remember listening to the Slim Shady album and thinking, what is happening right now?!"

In a double whammy, pixie is even in the rare position of being able to get hair-style tips from the man she covets (not something we can claim of Ryan Gosling). "Eminem is why I cut my hair short originally," she told us. "I think he’s the sexiest man in the world."

Despite the fact that she intends to attend all his upcoming gigs, Pixie has insisted that she would never actually want to meet him. "I would NOT be able to keep my cool. I’m no good at that." Which is one of the many reasons we love her.
