This video features the as yet unreleased album version of their song, "I'm Not Gonna Teach Your Boyfriend How to Dance With You". I love the video but honestly, I prefer the EP version of the song. The single comes out April 7th.

New video for Adele's "Cold Shoulder" features strobe lights and melting ice sculptures.
- GQ Interviews Keith Richards
Excerpts below feature Keith Richards' rambling thoughts about everything from Mick's sexuality, cheese phobia, moisturizing, and the Beatles.
At Mick’s gayest, how gay was he?
It was camp.
Yeah. It was all… I really have no idea if anyone ever shoved it up the sh*tter.
Do you have any other phobias?
As far as bodily, no. Cheese is a no-no for me. Everybody else, go eat it. Just take a look at yourself. Fermented milk is not the ideal choice for everyday eating, that’s all. [laughs]
Do you regret not moisturizing your face?
No. I leave that up to other people.
Ever think about getting Botox?
No one’s ever talked me into doing that. You’re lucky if you walk out of there alive. God bless you.
Do you think the Beatles are overrated?
Oh, definitely. So are we.
In that moment, the Beatles… But how can you—I mean yes. I’ll say yes. As a musician, yes. As a breath of fresh air and an injection of life into society, no, they were certainly not. They were exactly what was needed. It was a great enema.
What does that make you guys?
A great toilet bowl. [laughs]
Is there a Stones song you feel is the best articulation of your philosophy?
It’s hard to put it into a two-and-a-half-minute song. But I think “Tumbling Dice.”
Will you have them play that at your funeral?
I hope so. Just as long as I’m not there. [laughs]
