Nicole Richie may be blissfully in love with her musician beau, Good Charlotte lead vocalist Joel Madden, but romance aside, the star’s musical tastes veer more toward the late ’80s and early ’90s, Madden has revealed.
In an interview with Entertainment Tonight Canada, airing Thursday and conducted recently at Toronto’s Ultra Supper Club before Madden, 29, kicked off a deejay set, the rocker said, Richie, 26, “likes a lot of old stuff.”
“She’d probably like to hear a lot of fun stuff like New Kids on the Block or Bell Biv DeVoe or something like that,” he said. “She likes to have fun and listen to that stuff.”
As for their 7-month-old daughter Harlow, Madden said she hasn’t yet fine-tuned her musical tastes. “It really doesn’t matter right now. I’ll play her lullabies at home.”
He added, “I’m a cool dad. I can still go out and rock and roll a bit and hang out and deejay, but I’m definitely all about my family. Family first.”
As for the question on everyone’s mind – When are he and Richie getting married? – Madden said, “Right now we’re happy and everything is great. I’m moving at our own pace. We kind of do things our own style. So we’re happy.”
