Bob Geldof hates his daughter Peaches' clothes, especially when she wore "hip-hop" clothes
Peaches Geldof's dad is embarrassed by her fashion sense.
The presenter admits her charity campaigner father Bob Geldof hated her favourite tracksuits and skirts when she was a teenager and tried to get her to wear something else.
She said: "I had blonde frosted hair and pearls and orange fake tan and hung out in Chelsea. Then one day I came home in my denim skirt and Juicy Couture tracksuit top and my dad said, 'What the hell do you look like?' I was like, 'What are you talking about daddy? Shut up!'
"He said, 'Seriously, this is embarrassing, all you do is listen to s***ty commercial hip-hop.' "
Bob then made it his mission to change his daughter - and was relieved when he made an impact on her tastes.
Peaches, 20, explained: "The next day, he put a box of records in my room. There was The Ramones and Johnny Thunders and the Rolling Stones and a record player. From that moment I knew rock 'n' roll would be a big part of my life. That I would be around it and people who played it."
