After reaching a certain status as an entertainer, doing interviews must be a thankless chore.
When you're just starting out, it's probably an honour when genuinely interested interviewers ask informed questions about whatever art you're making, but as the audience grows and the appearances move to more mainstream media, the interview questions usually tend to get a bid broader.
Interviewers are only human too, and they can't be expected to pull off caring about every single artist or performer's latest product or plug, but keeping it watchable is normally a requirement for most broadcasts. Some of these interviews would come dangerously close to not ticking that box if it wasn't for the car crash appeal they hold for the internet's cringe connoisseurs.
Everyone gets a turn feeling desperately uncomfortable in this collection. Artists, hosts and audiences take turns stewing in painful silence. It's just a complete horror show.
Excuses for the behaviour in these clips range from jet lag to drug abuse to uncontrollable male sexual urges, but who really cares? Sadly, nowadays the sanitising pre-interview prevents these things from happening.
