Guy Sebastian, a platinum-selling artists known as the first-ever winner of "Australian Idol," a judge on "the X Factor Australia," and the voice/co-writer of Lupe Fiasco massive hit "Battle Scars," is, well quite a guy. When filling out our Valentine's Day-themed "POPsessions" questionnaire this week, the singer, whose new single is "Like A Drum," had all the right answers...like his props for Marvin Gaye, Queen, and Michael Jackson, not to mention some sweet shout-outs to his wife.
Come feel the love, and let's hear it for the Guy!
Who was your first musical crush?
New Kids on the Block
What song was playing during your first kiss?
"I Believe I Can Fly," R. Kelly — wait — I think that was just what was playing in my head.
What is the best makeout song of all time?
"Let's Get It On," Marvin Gaye
What's the best breakup song ever?
"End of the Road," Boyz II Men — you can just howl for hours over that tune.
What song would you want playing during your first wedding dance (OR, if you're married, what song did you dance to)?
I'm a married man, so our first dance at our wedding was to "Spend My Life With You" – Eric Benet featuring Tamia.
What love song makes you cry?
Can't go past the close-up shots of the tears in "Nothing Compares 2 U" [in the video] by Sinead O'Connor
Who is your favorite romantic singer?
Adam Sandler in "The Wedding Singer." '80s hair, slamming tunes, and a happy ending.
What is your fave album to listen to on a lonely Valentine's Day?
Nothing kills loneliness like "Thriller" by Michael Jackson.
Does the idea of a couple making out to your music flatter you, or just freak you out?
It freaks/flatters me. I've been told my music helps boost the population.
What's the sexiest music video of all time?
"I Want To Break Free," Queen
Who's the coolest couple in music?
Most definitely Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton.
What's the most romantic moment in movie history?
What romantic movie role do you wish you could play?
Any role where I get the girl in some sort of heroic fighting scene while saving the world at the same time. Something like Batman.
Who is your favorite fairytale princess?
Princess Jules. Jules is my wife. Did I just score 100 points?!
What is the most romantic city to visit?
I just did a European trip and I thought that Madrid was a particularly romantic city. I found this awesome place to go for a date under a bridge right on the water. Wasn't as romantic on my own, though!
Describe your ideal Valentine's Day date.
Riding horseback on a beach at sunset…in slow motion.
Flowers or chocolates?
If I'm sending — both for extra points, but If I'm receiving, chocolates. In particular, peanut M&M's please.
Do you watch/hate-watch "The Bachelor"?
If being forced to watch it counts…or getting blow-by-blow explanations of all the dates and rose ceremonies.
Overall, are you pro- or anti-Valentine's Day?
I'm pro-Valentine's Day, it's always nice to have a day to celebrate each other. Although every day should be a romantic one.
If someone did that "Say Anything" boombox thing outside your window, would you be into it, or call the police?
Yeah, I would be into it if they were playing Marvin Gaye.
