The Pulp singer tells NME.COM his nuptials won't be getting the OK! treatment...
PULP singer JARVIS COCKER is getting married, and has told NME.COM that he turned down an offer to have the event covered by a celebrity magazine.
The singer will tie the knot with his stylist girlfriend Camille Bidault-Waddington in a private ceremony in July, after Pulp complete a UK tour of forest venues in June.
The singer claimed that word has got out of his planned nuptials, and he received an offer from OK! for pictures, which he turned down.
He said: “I’m getting married in July so that’s the major event in my life. There’s quite a lot of organisation involved. Is it going to be a big celebrity wedding? No way. I did get, I think it was OK! magazine were trying to offer me some money to cover it. I can’t imagine anything worse. I really can’t.”
NME.COM contacted a spokesperson for the magazine, who could not confirm or deny an approach had been made. But the offer could have been as much as £50,000 – depending on the guest list.
An OK! source told NME.COM: “For a magazine like OK!, Jarvis himself is a bit boring. If there was a fashion crowd there because of the bride and it was a who’s who of British fashion, you could be talking about £30,000 to £50,000. Kate Moss would be interesting, because she’s pregnant, and Stella McCartney is very hot. But if it was Jarvis and a few mates, he’d be lucky to get a deal.”
Jarvis said that despite his wedding, he doesn’t have any plans to put Pulp on hiatus, and the group have 20 new songs which remain unreleased.
“I haven’t listened to them for ages so I don’t know if they’d be worth inflicting on people”, he said.
