smoking isn't cool, kids!
i remember being very surprised to find out that JV smokes. he said once in an interview, when asked about drug users, that he would never work with them because they're energy vampires. and, at the 92Y two years ago, he mentioned he only drinks maybe 5 or 6 times a year. those tidbits sorta made me think no cigs for him, either. i mean he has such a squeaky-clean image! i tend to think of the iconic smoking picture as something for artists with a "fuck it all" attitude.
