Author Hated By Crazed Duran Duran Fans

NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Dealing with crazed Duran Duran fans is especially hard when you’re their right- hand woman.

Katy Krassner has been running the ’80’s boybanders’ fan sites for 15 years, and in her book Would Someone Please Explain?: The Best of Duran Duran’s Ask Katy (Sanhedralite), which comes out in December, she details some of the weirdest questions Duranies have asked of the “Rio” rockers.

Krassner says women often beg for sperm samples from the band so they can have a musical baby, and have pondered who’d win in a dance-off, Duran Duran or the Backstreet Boys.

The craziest things Krassner has to deal with, though, are the crazed fans who hate her for being so close to the pop stars.

She says, “I’ve had women wait outside my apartment so they could follow me to where the band is, I’ve had stalkers threaten me, and I’ve had parents bribe me for tickets. If this is what I get for Duran Duran, I couldn’t imagine working for the Jonas Brothers!
