The Village People's Victor Willis says a reunion of the original group isn't going to happen anytime soon.
Fresh off a run in a package tour in the U.K., "the cop" tells the BBC he wants to "reboot the group [with] new characters. Then I have to get a band like when [producer] Jacques [Morali] and I first sat down and decided we're going to create this Village People thing." He also wants to prove "that this is not a Milli Vanilli thing. This is something that's live. This is real."
He adds that when "YMCA" came out 40 years ago, The Village People weren't aiming their music only at gays. "I would make my lyrics... 'double entendre,' which means that you can take it any way you want it. Gay people? If you liked it, fine! Straight people? If you liked it, fine! It doesn't matter... It was about the urban lifestyle of when I grew up going to the Y and playing basketball and hanging out. That was my interpretation of it. I didn't know anything about the lifestyle of other people that go there."
