Rookie Magazine hosts a feature called “Ask a Grown Man” where—you guessed it—grown men answer your pressing questions. The catch is, its not just the average Joe giving advice to teens. This column has featured an array of awesome figures such as TV on the Radio’s Tunde Adebimpe, Bill Hader and now Stephen Malkmus.
If you liked Malkmus before, you’ll find him even more relatable now. Watch above as the Pavement frontman gives advice on what to do when you’re crushing on a bandmate, how to tell your casual sex partner you want more and how to to break it to someone who digs you that you don’t feel the same way.
Stephen Malkmus and the Jicks newest album, Wig Out at Jagbags is out now on Matador Records.
