What do you ask Yoko Ono? Before speaking with her over the phone recently we sketched out a few conversation-starters knowing that — as is the case with most celebrities who have seen it all – heard it all and done it all over the last half-century — many would be met with detached amusement.
Surprisingly this was not the case. Yoko Ono is quite warm over the phone and even though our interview jumped chaotically from her pet project (just a little thing called world peace) to the modern-day resonance of her declaration that ‘Woman Is the Nigger of the World’ –
– she delivered her answers with genuine enthusiasm.
