Peaches Geldof’s Haunting Last Interview.


Peaches Geldof’s final interview before she tragically passed away has been released, and it’s more than a little haunting in what she had to say about her life. In it, she speaks of the difficulties of fame and dealing with the preconceptions of strangers.

“I’m young but people all know the same information about me. That’s the worst thing, the preconceptions… I’m going to die like my mother, she’s going to end up like her mother. The worst thing is shaking someone’s hand and realising full well they have a completely preconceived notion of who you are.”


Peaches spoke about heroin, saying she believed all users of the drug shared the same pains and suffered through addiction endlessly.

“Heroin is such a bleak drug. It always makes me so sad to hear about people like Philip Seymour Hoffman who are real masters and also family men who were just wasted by the constant gnawing obsession with it. All heroin users seem to have the same core internal pain.”

The interview, given to The Spectator magazine, took place just weeks before the young woman was found dead in her home last April as her 11 month old son slept beside her. Peaches had spoke of how her life had been turned around by her children and how they were such a positive force in her life.


“Suddenly I was this earth mother. It was an overnight transformation. It was so profoundly hateful. Then, out of nowhere it was ‘Dang. We can’t hate you anymore. Here she is in her golden hair, etc.”

Peaches’ mother, TV presenter and writer Paula Yates, passed away at her home in Notting Hill in 2000, and was discovered alongside her 4-year-old daughter Tiger Lily.
