It sure beats working

What do pop stars get up to when they're off duty? Try metal detecting, collecting vintage porn and catching trout

Iggy Pop - painting
Iggy Pop's house is a wild mix of highbrow art and locally produced knick-knacks. Not that you can see them properly in this quaint 1925 clapboard house in the Little Haiti area of Miami. 'I don't like a lot of light,' says the 61-year-old singer. Each room is lit by a single green or red bulb, which gives the place a voodoo vibe in keeping with both the neighbourhood and Pop's own dark side.

'I can easily spend an hour or two in the presence of one of the better paintings and sculptures I have,' he says. 'I just imagine and think and feel all sorts of things.'

Pop's love of art dates back to the turbulent years he spent in Berlin with David Bowie in the late Seventies. 'I first saw a Haitian painting in a gallery near the Kurf├╝rstendamm in 1977,' he says, wistfully. 'I was just walking by and - bam! - it had life force.' His artistic sensibility was nurtured by Bowie: 'He exposed me to the Br├╝cke Museum and the paintings there by the German expressionists.'

Bowie also took him to buy art supplies and taught him how to wash his brushes, mix paint and stretch his own canvases. 'I bought three How to Paint books and did a couple of self-portraits in acrylic - one of which Bowie still has, I think.' Today Pop still paints, often from old photographs of himself or friends. These he sees as visual explorations of his psyche. 'I go for things with a lot of angst,' he says. 'I don't paint so much - I dabble around - but it's fun.'
