Film composer and Devo singer/songwriter Mark Mothersbaugh revealed that he got in a row with Whip It! director Drew Barrymore after she stood him up three times in the studio to work on the score.
“She hired me and fired me in all of like two weeks,” Mothersbaugh told Yahoo! OMG (HT The Playlist). “I got snippy with her. She cancelled out on showing up at the studio three times and I kicked Devo out every single time and had an engineer come in and set up the studio and the third time I got pissy with her on the phone. And she said she just doesn’t think our styles work together. So I got fired.”
As The Playlist notes, Mothersbaugh has also been mysteriously absent from the last two films of his longtime collaborator Wes Anderson. Oh well, the man’s busy, right? Devo recently reunited for their first album in over a decade and they’ve put out a new video/song here.
