Peaches, the controversial dirty-talkin' rock star that makes your panties go 'ping!' will be gracing Chicago with her presence to heat up Funky Buddha Lounge's dance floor Tuesday, June 26, for a special version of Outdanced, hosted by Estrojam.

Nightspots jumped at the chance to talk dirty with this uncensored performer and queen of the electro-punk scene about ageism, sex ( of course! ) and feminism.

Nightspots: What can we expect?

Peaches: Well, you can expect that anything goes! That's the motto of my DJ nights. The crazier people get, the more I rise to the occasion.

NS: Peaches, what are the hottest emerging electro-punk bands out there that we should be paying attention to?

P: Bonde Do Role. They are kind of like Run DMC, but Brazilian-style.

NS: I heard about your art exhibit in Montreal.

P: It's happening right now until July 11. It's my first artistic installation. I made a huge cave... and it's made with a wood frame, and inside the whole thing it's lined with all the clothes that people threw on stage to me. It's like 300 items of underwear and T-shirts and bras with phone numbers on them and things like that. The cave also has a little video of other people from my 2003/2004 solo tour singing 'Fuck the Pain Away.' So, it's basically a fan-appreciation cave.

NS: What's the most memorable piece of fan art you've received over the years?

P: One of the pieces given to me actually became an essential part of my live show costume. It was a XXX black cap with pink, long gloves attached to the cape.

NS: What's your favorite lyric out of your work?

P: Right now its,'Did you feel something just spraying your face?' ...It's kind of fun because for a long time I wanted to sing 'Say it, don't spray it.' You know? 'Don't say it, spray it.' [ Laughs ] .

NS: Is Peaches a part of you, or a character?

P: Yeah, it's definitely a part of me. On stage it's easy to amplify me, or when I'm DJing. When people are looking at you, a lot of what you give back has to be equal to the amount of people watching you.

NS: What is your biggest turn on?

P: Any new surprises. Surprise me! Whoop!

NS: What about your biggest turn off?

P: When things are too comfortable.

NS: Some people say that you are preoccupied with sex in your lyrics, and I can't help but laugh when I read that. Why do you think you are treated like an anomaly?

P: I don't know. It's ridiculous. It's ridiculous and funny.

NS: People also always tend to include your age, as if you are only person over the age of 18 to rock out.

P: I think that's really important. Go ahead! Mention my age more and more! I've seen on Web sites, 'Who invited the aunt?' It is really ageist. I was recently asked if I think that it's still relevant that Madonna does what she does when she is 47, because she is still using sex. She's back to sex, you know? It's just as relevant as a 15-year-old girl using sex. It's just as relevant. There're so many men. Look at Rod Stewart!

NS: Or Mick Jagger!

P: People accept that. When you go to Argentina and go to a Tango bar, you're going to see 60-year-old hot mamas with 70-year-old men totally sexing it up!

NS: We need to see that more in America.

P: Yeah! Why does sex need to stop at a certain age? And why, then, do we put so much pressure on sex only between the ages of this and this, and anything over or under is just not 'it?' Why does sex have to be over? If we are able to have plastic surgery and Viagra and all that, let's c'mon. If you want to show it, just go for it.

NS: A lot of your lyrics gross people out, so I like to drive around with the windows rolled down, playing 'My Dumps.'

P: Which version, fast or slow? [ The 'fast' version is a parody of Black Eyed Peas' 'My Humps,' and the 'slow' version is a parody of Alanis Morissette's parody of the hit song. ] It was great for me to realize I had the opportunity to make a parody of a parody. [ Laughs. ]

NS: You are the first!

P: It was exciting to realize there's a new art form—a parody of a parody. And they thought they were all done.

NS: Is there anything that grosses you out?

P: Being so in the box and so trying to fit into something, and being manipulative. Like easy listening music. Not that I'm prejudice against easy listening music. But when things try to fit into a box. That grosses me out.

NS: If you could name a sexual position after yourself, what would you call it?

P: The Peach Pit.
