Just Be

Tisto waxes thoughtful on superstardom and the Low Countries

In the midst of Tiësto's brief political discourse, a few devoted trance fans in the Victor's lobby openly gawk at the lanky Lowlander hunched over his coffee cup and then surreptitiously capture his image with camera phones. Normally the pale, brown-haired DJ blends into his surroundings, camouflaged in the international uniform of jeans and a white oxford shirt.

"I don't think I'm fully famous," Tiësto says. "I don't get mobbed on the sidewalk. I'm not like Madonna; I wouldn't want it to be like that. And so far there's no dark side to it. I've stayed in Vegas for free every time I've gone. I like it. The only strange thing that's happened is this one time, I was wearing these jeans that had a rip and a flower print sewn underneath, so you could see the flower print, and someone wrote on the Internet that I wear flower underwear."

It's true: All the great DJs are from Holland, Belgium, or Luxembourg
