You may have noticed from my sidebar that I'm revisiting my obsession with Robert Plant these days. This obsession remains latent for the most part but thanks to the internet it can rear it's golden mane at any time. (Seriously, thanks internet!) It's not like I'm in love with Robert Plant. I just find him incredibly interesting and cool. I love cool people. I've seen Bob (I call him that) look attractive, fruity, and old. It doesn't matter to me. Besides, he's old enough to be my father, which is. . heh heh. . . part of the allure. Troubling father-figure issues aside, here's the new angle of obsession: Alison Krauss, why so stand-offish? They have this new album together which I really like. As I listen to it I study the pictures on the cd case. I just don't get it. What's the deal with her hand-clenching, arm-folding body language?
I've been googling Alison Krauss to find out if she has a really jealous husband or is gay.
Sure he's old, but put your arm around him! He's a golden god! I mean, what gives, Alison? I'm not saying she should be all over him. I get the notion of "restraint" which seems to run through the album and is reflected in the pictures. But still. Does Alison Krauss think Bob is some kind of leach? He is, of course--but he's such a Lord of the Rings fan you have to wonder, how bad could he really be?
I think these pictures of Bob and Alison are adorable. I am so intrigued. I think he might like her more than she likes him! How could that be? It sure makes Alison Krauss seem cool. In fact when Pink tried to buddy up to Bob and suggested doing an album with him he said, "Too late. I've got my girl and I'm giving up nothing for her." He's totally loyal to Alison Krauss. And it's sort of like she could care less. If I had a relationship with Robert Plant that is exactly how I would want it to be. *Kind of surprised his behind doesn't look better in this picture, even for 59--which doesn't seem that old to me all of the sudden. You know. Whatever.
