First off congrats on the tour so far, selling out almost every single stop … How’s it been?
Borgore: It’s my favorite tour I’ve done so far. Obviously we are all good friends outside of performers that are inside a package or whatever. We are actually friends, ya know? Even when we go back home. Tour has been real good, tons of good music, I’ve learned a lot of good music from my friends that we are working with. Lots of really hot naked chicks too!
Tell us a bit about the label and the album?
Borgore: The label is a house of collectic music. I’m trying to help people from all genres of music be heard. Ya know, Give them a stage. The album did real good, it was #1 on Electro, #3 on Dance because we had to switch... Whatever, but we would of got #1 there too, I swear. So the reaction is real good. Again, it’s a very collectic album in that there is pop songs like “Set Free” with my sister. And, there’s more hardcore shit like “Can’t Squad with Us”. I enjoyed working on it because every song is completely different. So it was a lot of fun sitting down working on it.
How was it working with your sister?
Borgore: I love working with my sister because we are coming from the same back ground. Both of us love the same music. We think the same. It’s really easy to understand what we are trying to do when we are working together because it’s like we have the same references. Ya know what I mean? We listen to the same shit.
So you have Chris (Dotcom) on your tour, but how do you feel about some of the other Philly producers like Victor Niglio? You guys did a track together a little while back called “Booty Monsta”, how was it working with him?
Borgore: Dude all of them are nuts. All of them are crazy. I love all of them.
So how did this #Booty4Borgore start? How’d this whole thing come about?
Borgore: I think it was like a million years ago, when there were still dinosaurs’ hahaha. Nah, but basically I was playing a show somewhere in England, I think near New Castle, and I got obliterated drunk. I was like playing strip-twitter, which is what I call it. I was like; “every 10 chicks with their shirt off I’ll take my shirt off and every 10 chicks with their pants off I’ll take my pants off.” It went like this the whole night and when it came to the money shot of me showing my butt, Twitter blocked me. I was saved by the Twitter jail. I guess because if you tweet 200 tweets in like an hour Twitter just locks you for like a day or so.
So they just shut it down?
Borgore: Yeah they just block you for a little. I got blocked.
Whose booty was the first booty? Do you know?
Borgore: I don’t know….
Borgore: Damn hahaha, that girl needs a trophy.
Yeah she does…. So, you did a track with Miley Cyrus…
Borgore: Of course.
Personally I think she’s extremely talented and she gets a lot of heat for some of the antics she pulls… Tell us a bit about that and how it was working with her.
Borgore: It was really good working with Miley, she’s super fun…. Uhm, she’s getting a lot of shit, I mean she does some shit. She’s been doing some fucking bat shit crazy stuff lately. I’ll give you that. But the thing is she’s not very different from any other chick her age in America. And, if you judge Miley Cyrus… You need to judge America. Ya know?
Borgore: You cannot go and say Miley Cyrus is fucked up, all of America is fucked up. If you think Miley Cyrus is fucked up than the education in America is fucked up. Don’t blame her. Blame your education system. Blame your Government. Blame your parents. Blame your fucking internet. I don’t know. I’ll tell you it’s less likely to see a chick acting like this outside of America.
That’s saying something…
Borgore: (Shrugs)…. The thing is I don’t hate it. I don’t mind it. I don’t mind it at all dude. People should do whatever they want.
People should do what makes them happy...
Borgore: Exactly…. Its super “New Jersey” to say but we only live once and we need to make the best out of it.
I agree….. Last question. Have you grabbed Philly cheesesteaks any of your times in Philly and which one was your favorite?
Borgore: I did last time I was here… Today I haven’t yet, but I ate sushi from a really good chef apparently, I don’t know who…
Coach (Manager): Some Iron chef restaurant, Mori something…
Oh shit Morimota?
Coach (Manager): Yeah, that was it.
Borgore: So yeah, I had a bomb sushi.
Borgore: It was bomb!
What kind you get?
Borgore: Dude, I’m pretty simple when it comes to my sushi I either stick with my spicy tuna or salmon with cucumber. I don’t fuck with avocado and I don’t fuck with any spider that’s looks like it comes from the ocean.
Like squid, calamari, and octopus?
Borgore: Dude there’s a reason why all the aliens from all the Alien movies look like seafood.
So then, you believe in aliens?
Borgore: Yeah 100%... I mean I cannot tell you for sure that they are here right now, but they have been here at one point and they exist. I don’t know what’s going on but they exist. Imagine it, like Earth is smaller than this... (Picks up a crumb and compares it to the tour bus living room) There’s no way out of billions of billions of suns that there’s not another perfect place for living creatures.
