Charli XCX Revisits SPIN Covers of Gwen Stefani, Marilyn Manson and More | SPIN


– Hey, I’m Charli XCX and this is SPIN. (upbeat music) Okay. Gwen Stefani. No Doubt. Riot Girlie. No Doubt just wanna have fun. I really got into No Doubt when I was older and
re-listened to Tragic Kingdom, but I was, when I was younger, I was definitely really obsessed with Love. Angel. Music. Baby. Gwen’s, I think, first solo album. I feel like I’m not that intimidating. And I feel like I’d feel
intimidated to work with her, you know, ’cause she’s such a icon, so. But then hopefully if we
ever did work together, I’m sure we both just get
over it and it’d be great. I feel like it’d be great. Weezer. Rivers is re-rocking like an
intense beard moment in this, in this cover. Yes, I did work with Rivers. He produced a song on my album Sucker. He was just so kind
and really open-minded, and I just thought it was cool that he was up for
collaborating with me on my pop (cover falls on floor) thing. Marilyn Manson. I always gravitate towards
artists like that in my work, people who are kind of irreplicable. And I just feel like we’re
in such an age where music is like made to appease
and appeal to everyone. You know, people who make music feel like people’s parents
to like and buy for them. And I just like that
Marilyn Manson isn’t that. You know, he’s controversial
and he did his thing, and there should be more
people like that now. Iggy Pop is kind of a
performance hero of mine, I think just the way that he moves, the way that he dances, the
way that he was just doing so much crazy shit on stage. He is a legend. And he looks like he’s casting
a spell on this SPIN cover. The Cure, Robert Smith. One of my crushes. Yeah, a fan made me a
voodoo doll of Robert Smith and we traveled around on tour with this Robert Smith
voodoo doll everywhere. If I ever met Robert Smith, I’d probably react in the same way if I had met Britney Spears. I’d play it cool but I’d be freaking out. (upbeat music)
