Lisa Lashes' Scary Sound Of The Hoover

Lisa Lashes chatted to Skrufff this week as she prepared for the South Eastern Asia stage of her latest world tour and revealed that she's expecting to be subjected to full intimate body searches.

"I'm going to China, Australia and New Zealand next week and I know that I'll be strip searched, I always am. Not so much in Australia but in New Zealand I definitely will. They'll get the vacuum out on me," she said.

"Yeah, I said 'vacuum'," she confirmed, "Whenever I get to passport control these days I just say 'hi' and start taking my clothes off, obviously when I go through passport control a little bell goes off," she chuckled.

The one time Jehovahs Witness turned self described Queen of Hard Dance has become used to being targeted ever since an over-zealous fan slipped a surprise birthday card into her record bag several years ago containing two ecstasy tablets, which were detected by New Zealand customs officials as she flew into the country.

"I didn't get convicted but I had to pay a thousand pounds to the Salvation Army. The judge was actually quite lenient with me in a way, because he could have banned me from New Zealand and deported me," said Lisa.

"And once you've got a deportation order on your passport you can forget visiting places like America entirely, you're just not allowed. For such a tiny thing like that it's ridiculous but obviously the judge believed what I said, which was the truth, but there wasn't a lot I could do. I was also really lucky because I went through Kuala Lumpur on my way to New Zealand and they were in my record bag then. They chop your hand off there! I'd never dream of taking anything through; I didn't and don't do pills either."

Lisa also expressed sympathy for drug scandal supermodel Kate Moss, who just weeks previously she named as being her ultimate fashion icon in an interview with a beauty magazine.

"She should be able to do what she wants in her personal life but she can't because people around her are obviously grassing (informing) on her, she can't trust anybody now," said Lisa.

"One of her close friends told the paper and that must be one of the worst things- knowing that one of her close friends knows everything about her and is prepared to tell everyone and make money out of it. That's a horrible thought."(Jonty Skrufff)
