I know you’ve been wondering about newlyweds Ryan Adams and Mandy Moore. Who programs the DVR? Does Ryan sneak Marlboro Lights? Are the two going to record together? EW caught up with the musician/actress/lingerie model whose new album Amanda Leigh is out 5/26 (don’t be too judgmental, she has good taste). Says the Mrs., “There’s a lot more metal being played in the house than ever before. It’s like, ‘No, no, that’s hair metal, that’s not black metal. And that’s more melodic Scandinavian metal.’ It’s hard to discern, but I’m starting to get there.” Sounds like me and Stosuy. Also, she’s obsessed with Fleet Foxes.
“Last year, I was obsessed with Fleet Foxes, and I still am. I found their [Sun Giant] EP at the record store — I liked the cover, so I picked it up. I love them. I actually exchanged one email with [Fleet Foxes frontman Robin Pecknold] last year. I was like, “I want to write with him!” He was so nice — such a deep, intense music guy. He was really inquisitive about, “What kind of record is this? What do you want to write about?” Obviously he wouldn’t have been listening to my music. I just thought it was so cool of him. He said, ‘I’d love to, but we’re busy.’ I was such a nerdy fan, like, ‘Oh my god, I can’t believe he wrote me!'”
