Iggy Pop's obsessed with chairs

Iggy Pop owns 34 chairs and sits in each of them every day.

The 68-year-old rocker loves collecting furniture and as he has some obsessive compulsive tendencies he always shows each piece of furniture some love by placing his posterior on them

Speaking about his unusual collection, he told ShortList magazine: "I have 34 (chairs). I've had them longer than any of my human friends. So I make a habit of sitting in each one once a day.

"(I have more chairs than) sexual encounters I can remember!"

Iggy treats his chairs with care and doesn't tend to fart on his favourite furniture pieces, but has admitted he suffers from frequent flatulence when he is on tour.

Revealing his gust for life, the former Stooges star shared: "There's been a decline, I am 68 and things have gone downhill from when I was 21. I can qualify as an old fart. If I am at home I fart very rarely but, If I'm out on the road, I'm farting all the f***ing time. I'm farting all through rehearsal for the end of rehearsal you push a lot of air so I am pushing and farting."

Iggy has just released his new album 'Post Pop Depression' which he recorded with Queen of the Stone Age's Josh Homme, Arctic Monkeys drummer Matt Helders and Dean Fertita from the Dead Weather.
