Anyone see the Elvis Costello interview in the most recent Rolling Stone (Kurt Cobain cover)? At one point, the interviewer says, "You sing about your wife a lot on the new album." I was shocked by Elvis' response. This should have been Elvis' cue to mention Bebe Buell, but that didn't happen. The article mentions Elvis traveling the world with his wife, Cait, going from Ethiopia to the South Pole with her. Why would he do that, if he's still in love with Bebe Buell? I don't get it. Elvis even had this to say about Heather Graham (of "Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me"): "Heather Graham, what a doll. That's a hard job, isn't it, watching Heather dance around in that dress all day?". Shouldn't he be talking about what a doll Bebe Buell is? He mentions writing a song for Destiny's Child, called "Spooky Girlfriend". No mention whatsoever of Bebe Buell, his #1 muse and inspiration for 99.9% of all his songs. Why doesn't he write songs for Bebe? He must realise she's a singer, since he worships her so much.
