In The Kills' first album, Mosshart was known by her stage name "VV" and Hince was known as "Hotel".She’s been known to send hilarious e-mails about the travails of living with Hince in North London and is an unabashed fan (in fact, one Kills song was the soundtrack for the show’s second-season promo, and Mosshart has friends in the cast). Hedi Slimane made these, and now I have three pairs of the gold, plus pairs in every other color, in black, in patent. I just sang at first—I didn’t ever play guitar before The Kills. MOSSHART: I was in another band in Florida, touring and going to school. I told him I wanted to start writing myself, and he lent me a four-track to take on the road for the rest of my tour, which I took as an opportunity to mix, like, 20 tapes of music and bring them back to have Jamie listen to them. Mosshart is so down-to-earth she meets me a little late because she was up late last night chain-smoking cigarettes, writing songs, and painting, at one point spilling thick black lacquer all over a white wall at her week-long sublet in the East Village. MOSSHART: Embarrassingly enough, I think these are the exact same jeans I’ve worn on the past two tours. I have a friend [at Dior] who reorders a pair for me whenever mine get tired. I started that band when I was in junior high school—BLASBERG: Wait, junior high? It’s a very important date for the 30-year-old singer, marking the first time she took the stage with Jamie Hince, her cohort in The Kills. Regarding Kate, you could look at the sales for The Babyshambles [Moss dated Pete Doherty, who is the band’s lead singer and guitarist] and say having Kate attached to your band—in the media, anyway—doesn’t necessarily help. It was a Sunday when he should have arrived, but he didn’t. He is one of V magazine’s senior editors and is a contributing editor at and several international editions of Vogue.As half of one of London’s most celebrated punk-rock alt bands (complete with fashion street cred and a supermodel groupie in the form of Hince’s lady friend), Mosshart has her hardcore stage persona down. Sometimes we sit together and jam things out—but we’re both equally controlling and equally secretive. The music enters this public realm, whereas before it was private. You don’t even know how you’re going to react to playing it. BLASBERG: So you never thought your song “Sour Cherry” would become a promo? It’s a totally different group of people who read tabloid magazines compared to hardcore music fans and people who go to gigs. Three tons of black metal vanished into thin air, with all of our things in it. Well, the manhunt was called off when the bus—but not the driver—was found behind a Best Western in L. by our friend Lalo Medina, who kept me abreast, minute by minute, like an episode of , as 10 armed policemen and a helicopter arrived on the scene and entered the bus. MOSSHART: Lalo, the coolest dude alive, very nicely packed it up and sent it to us. For a rocker in London to discover her song is the anthem of an American teen drama? I think it would be more bizarre for my mom to hear it on TV. When you do music, your friends are writers, actors, painters. And Jamie dates Kate Moss, which is a whole other element. You seem to me like a person who would get off on lonely moments on the road. because we were flying to our next tour stop in Austin, Texas. MOSSHART: If there were cigarette commercials, I would have done a few by now.

I don’t really like the idea of my music showing up in a beer commercial—that would be weird. If someone hears your song on and buys your CD, that’s probably an audience you didn’t expect. We get excited, and then we’re here and then there, all over the world, and not looking after ourselves. That is still one of my favorite stories of all time. MOSSHART: After our California gigs we stayed in a Hilton near the airport in l.a.

Until we saw it reported in the British tabloids, then we knew it was legit.

In case you didn't catch the sarcasm, it was implied.

For this interview at The Mercer hotel in New York last December, she arrives with bangs covering her face and a cigarette hanging from her lips. So we’ll work separately, even in the same room, where we can see but not hear each other. [Tabloid readers] work in offices or something and probably don’t have a real connection to the arts. MOSSHART: We get along great, despite people making up stories that we don’t. BLASBERG: So she’s not some skank who stole your style? The weird part was that all of the driver’s things were on the bus, too—his jacket still on the back of the seat and the keys still in the ignition. BLASBERG: You’ve obviously reached them, because I’m here! It would be nice if we were though, just for a minute, so we could pay off this house and be free. We just did this collaboration with Yves Saint Laurent, for a fragrance.

She takes a menthol drag and lets out a loud, phlegmy treble cough, a sound an acute Kills fan might recognize as an opening note of the tune “Cheap and Cheerful,” in which Mosshart begs: “I want you to be crazy ’cause you’re stupid, baby, when you’re sane.” To watch her perform it live, you’d think she was exorcizing some pretty hateful demons. They don’t care, they just read these magazines on the train. He left the motor running, and the generator died when the gas finally ran out. He’s not dead, because I keep hearing he’s stolen more buses. I also was told that he went on a three-day coke bender with a hooker—apparently that’s also his thing. If you weren’t playing music, what would you be doing? I’ve thought about this—I say write books, or draw pictures. BLASBERG: Just sell a bunch of jingles to a beer company.

Lately, she’s even gotten a second project started, coming together with musicians Jack White, Jack Lawrence, and Dean Fertita as the band the Dead Weather; they just recorded tracks, and their first album will be out later in the year. I met a lot of people on that circuit, sleeping on people’s floors. The bus was pitch-black and couldn’t be started—Lalo had to pack the bus up using a flashlight. BLASBERG: Stealing buses and doing coke with hookers? But there’s this side of me that truly loves and is obsessed with and addicted to performing. My parents are really proud of me and my brother, who’s a chef here in New York. I have responsibilities and ties to London that I’ll be dealing with probably forever.
