Joanna Newsom Discusses Her Stalkers
Joanna Newsom is married to famous funny person Andy Samberg, who was a lowly fan before they ever got together. This has led to plenty of people clowning Samberg for being a stalker who got lucky. But that’s not the case. Newsom has real, actual stalkers — motherfuckers who feel such a connection to her music and her persona that they feel compelled to show up at her house. She and Samberg live in an ornate old mansion that sounds awesome, but she won’t talk about where it is because she doesn’t want these clowns to find it. And in a new Rolling Stone profile, she vents about them a bit:
I’ve had a horrible experience of people coming to my house, mostly back in Nevada City, and I don’t want it to happen again here. It’s really unpleasant. The first step in showing up at my home is not being fully there. There’s a delusion and emotional instability that maybe I should have more compassion for, but my response is pure rage. I am not nice when that happens.
So yeah, don’t do that. Don’t show up at Joanna Newsom’s house. She doesn’t want to hang out with you.
