Lionel Richie: "I can't record unless I'm wearing a special, charmed hat" - Q310 preview
Lionel Richie says he can't record unless he's wearing one of his a special hats.
Speaking in our new issue, Q310 which hit newsstands this week, the singer confesses he's very superstitious when it comes to working in the studio.
"I can't record a song unless I have a special hat on my head," he admits. "That's probably the strangest thing about me. I have charmed hats that I have to have on before I can record. It's either a beanie or it's a tennis hat."
Get the latest Q now for the full interview, because frankly that's just the start of it, with Richie talking about women's underwear, his Republican politician of choice, how his music soundtracked conflict in the Middle East (really) and what happened to the creepy sculpture of him made by the 'blind' girl in the Hello video.
