Have you ever heard Vivienne Westwood speak? Having for years kind of assigned her to the OTT posturing fashion brigade, with the crazy hair and the hairy husband, I now find that she’s like my favourite straight talking Yorkshire granny. Loving her down-to-earthness and intelligence and frankness. She’s obviously good for a laugh too.

Check out this brand new video of her trying to persuade people to go vegetarian by chatting to camera while in the shower (June Whitfield eat your heart out). She’s utterly lovely. You’ll have to twiddle your thumbs for 10 secs while one of those annoying ads you didn’t ask to watch plays, but it’s worth it.

Westwood in the punk era

Westwood in the punk era

Then watch this brilliant 2 minute interview from 2011 her talking about how punk was basically an excuse for kids to run around, and why everyone is ‘piddling’ about with no proper ideas, and what she thinks is the ultimate status symbol for kids (you’ll be surprised I bet).

It’s official, pensioners rock!
