Mark Romanek’s road to Taylor Swift was paved with videos by Michael Jackson, Weezer, Madonna, The Wallflowers, Red Hot Chili Peppers, En Vogue and Fiona Apple.
In other words, non-millionaires need not apply.
The towering DJ star talks about his aspirations beyond music, why he’s not the biggest fan of playing festivals and a truly inspired pitch for a cameo in the ‘Entourage’ movie.
