Fantastic interview with Miki about her home life, including photos of her flat and with Chris and Moose. (Much thanks to Carl S. for unearthing this)

Miki's typically funny comment on this article:

Im racking my brains to remember what this was in definitely a British publication and I think on the teen girl side of things. It was done around the summer of 1996.

I remember Moose and Chris HATED doing it... It is a bit sad, really! They look like they work for me or something... The janitor and the chauffeur.
