We’re going to have mojitos
English tv host Dermot O’Leary sat down for a chat on Heat Radio with Lucie Cave this morning ahead of the release of his biography book, Soundtrack To My Life.
The X Factor presenter also shared some tidbits about the time he interviewed the Queen of Pop for the “Confessions Of Madonna” special that aired November 27, 2005 on Channel 4.
Halfway through the interview, she said ‘What kind of cocktails do they do here?’ and immediately you’re like ‘Think of a thing! Aaah I don’t know!’ and then someone saidthey had mojitos so she was like ‘OK after this we’re going to have mojitos’.
You think, well, we’re not really going to are we. After the interview, your PR is going to whisk you away and I’m never going to see you again, but its a nice thing to say. We wrapped the interview, and she said ‘OK come on lets go!’ so fifteen minutes later, myself and my producer (who was beside himself) and two quite bemused cameramen were at a cocktail bar.’
But what did they talk about?
Oh, smalltalk. That’s the lovely thing about our job, with big stars you always find commonality, people are either ‘people people’ or they’re not and obviously Madonna is her own woman, and really strong, but i found her really personable!
