Frontman speaks in new interview

Red Hot Chili Peppers frontman Anthony Kiedis has explained why he doesn’t sleep with groupies.

The band released latest album ‘The Getaway’ back in June and will embark on a UK tour in December.

The singer was speaking to Germany’s Bild Musik recently when the conversation came onto the subject of groupies. Kiedis said: “I have no trouble sending people away in general, because I like my privacy. I think people need to respect everybody’s privacy, no matter what the profession, or what the relationship is.”

“It’s nice to have fans,” he added. “It’s nice to have people of different sexes enjoy the music and the experience, but even when I was first starting this band, the groupie thing didn’t really appeal to me because there’s something about someone who wants to be with you because of what you do that seems a little less appealing.”

“Before we were famous, I think I was more attracted to females in that way, the groupie way, but then the minute we got famous, I was like, this doesn’t feel right anymore.”
