Debbie Harry would still like to wear hotpants on stage.

The 64-year-old Blondie vocalist said she would still like to wear revealing clothes when performing, but although she recognises she should dress more for her age, doesn't feel comfortable wearing suits onstage.

She told Spin.com: "For me, performance is about forgetting what I'm wearing. Just putting it on and knowing it's right. I'd like to wear hot pants - honest, guys, I really would - but those days are gone.

"I had someone say to me, 'You should just wear Chanel suits.' I tried. I wasn't comfortable."

'The Tide Is High' singer also said she thinks the internet has ruined the mystique surrounding rock stars, and it is harder to surprise people than her heyday in the late 70s.

She added: "That undercurrent of the forbidden was always been a part of rock, and now it's not at all. Everything is totally mainstream. But I'm not against evolution."

Debbie admitted she has tried to embrace technology and use twitter, but wasn't good at creating exciting messages.

She added: "When I was twittering on tour, I found myself being a complete bore. 'We got to our hotel, everybody got ready for the show, and we went back on the bus' - I've seen enough of that. Why would I want to read about it? You should just make it all up: 'I checked in at the hotel, and I had to kill the desk clerk'."
