NME spoke with Robert Smith of The Cure on the red carpet of the Shockwaves NME Awards 2009, who picked up the 2009 Godlike Genius award. The mainman joked next year he’d like to get the nod again for his solo work, but wouldn’t commit to a serious choice to stay out of trouble. “It depends tonight. It depends who’s nicest to me,” Smith said. He also talked about what fans can expect at tonight’s Big Gig takes at London’s O2 Arena, where they’re headlining. Watch the interview below.
