James Rousseau: Kate is My Inspiration

James Rousseau: Kate is My Inspiration

Model and aspiring musician James Rousseau was interviewed by BBC’s breakfast presenter Howard Bentham Monday morning. This is the first interview James has ever given in three years and the first time he’s ever publicly spoken about his relationship with actress girlfriend Kate Bosworth. Interview snippets:

On why he wants to get into music now: “Music has always been a big part of my life. My mum plays the guitar and so she used to strum chord progressions and I’d sing with her and make up a melody as I went along, so I loved to harmonise and improvise from a young age. On the stereo there was always Dylan, Neil Young and Johnny Cash playing and I think a lot of my song writing is inspired by those people.”

On whether Kate was the inspiration for the song “To Make You Mine”: “I wrote this as a gift for her. Kate’s always been a great inspiration for me in my life. I’d put music on the back burner for a while and when we started seeing each other I’d play her songs and she used to say you should definitely go back into the studio and start recording so I owe a lot to her for really pushing me to get back in there.”

The interview is posted at BBC. You have to use the fast forward buttons to skip forward 2 hours and 10 minutes (that is 8 presses of the 15 minutes button and two presses of the 5 minutes). The interview will start up a minute or two later.

I’m liking this guy more and more all the time.

I think it’s cute when guys write songs for their girls even if the song is completely cheesy. Bosworth seems like such a silly valley girl her vapidness is probably endearing to some guys.

How can she have always inspired him if they’ve only been going out for a year?

He means as long as they have been together she has always inspired him.

So Kate inspired him to write a cheesy song? I can believe that.

Somewhere Orlando is laughing his ass off at this Hallmark card set to music.

I think Kate’s the one doing all the laughing these days.
She has been in a great relationship for well over a year and Orlando
has some silly cheating model who milks his their relationship in the press every chance she gets. Yea, like I’m sure that’s going to last long.
You know how the expression goes, “If he/she will cheat WITH you they will cheat ON you.”
