the video for All is full of love

That video is very, very, Chris Cunningham, and I don’t think my part in it was controlling at all. I came up with some beginnings of things just to describe the songs. I gave him some little Chinese statues, the erotic ones of ivory, so it was sort of white material that would melt together because of lovemaking, and he took that, and thought about it and called me later with : "how about robots ?" So that video was completely his idea ; it’s not controlled.

And it’s trust as well.

It’s trust, and in that particular relationship I would say each role was different. My job was to protect him and provide him with a good working environment, and that he didn’t have to worry about business and money and all this rubbish and the marketing. And also most people have
like : "the single comes out in three months," or whatever, blah blah blah, and we never had that.

So when he said : "My video’s not ready," I’m like : "we’ll wait" and it came out a lot later, because it was more important for me to provide him with what he needed, and at the end of the day he got. So, you could call it control, but I don’t think so. I think it’s protection.
