PEACHES DOES HERSELF: 5 Questions for Peaches

We decided to ask Peaches five questions about her new movie, Peaches Does Herself, which is playing at the Toronto International Film Festival. Here's what she had to say.

1. Why make Peaches Does Herself into a movie?

For all the lazy people who didn't make their way to Berlin to see one of the ten performances we did of the stage production.

2. What movies were your inspirations when transforming the stage show into a movie?

I saw Phantom of the Paradise and Tommy at a very young age and it's affected everything I do ever since.

I am also inspired by Sandra Bernhard's Without You I'm Nothing.

Phantom Of The Paradise, 1974
3. Who do you want to go see the movie besides your already-existing fan base? 

Vladimir Putin, Todd Akin, and Rick Santorum.

4. What is the one thing you hope people take away after seeing Peaches Does Herself?

It's a feel good movie, really. I want people to feel empowered, get creative!

5. When are you going to take over the world?

I'm working on it!

Tommy, 1975
