Helge Schneider is apparently private. The clothes give it away. Apparently. A few days ago, at 3 after 9 from Radio Bremen, that was different. The torero suit he wore there – pink, opulently embroidered, very tight around the stomach, which was often emphasized, the pants: very tight, especially around the stomach – “it’s purely professional”. At The! from the NDR he was sitting shortly before with a crumpled hat, a crumpled face and a crumpled wool sweater, very loosely around his stomach, without a torero suit. He wanted, he said, to be private here. Now he’s wearing a checked jacket, black shirt, handkerchief and walking stick (“I’ve got knees.”).
