I’ve never wanted to look like models on the cover of magazines. I represent the majority of women and I’m very proud of that.
Even if I did have you know a ‘Sports Illustrated’ body I’d still wear elegant clothes.
I don’t make music for eyes. I make music for ears.
I like having my hair and face done but I’m not going to lose weight because someone tells me to. I make music to be a musician not to be on the cover of Playboy.
The focus on my appearance has really surprised me. I’ve always been a size 14 to 16 I don’t care about clothes I’d rather spend my money on cigarettes and booze.
I doubt I’ll be singing forever because at some point people aren’t going to want to hear my music and I hope that I’ll still get the opportunity to write songs.
I get so nervous on stage I can’t help but talk. I try. I try telling my brain: stop sending words to the mouth. But I get nervous and turn into my grandma. Behind the eyes it’s pure fear. I find it difficult to believe I’m going to be able to deliver.
I just want to make music I don’t want people to talk about me. All I’ve ever wanted to do was sing. I don’t want to be a celebrity. I don’t want to be in people’s faces you know constantly on covers of magazine that I haven’t even known I’m on.
In five years’ time I’d like to be a mum. I want to settle down and have a family definitely sooner rather than later. I’d like to have finished my second album too maybe even my third. I’d like a sound that sticks around that other people are inspired by and that people know is me.
It’s never been an issue for me – I don’t want to go on a diet I don’t want to eat a Caesar salad with no dressing why would I do that? I ain’t got time for this just be happy and don’t be stupid. If I’ve got a boyfriend and he loves my body then I’m not worried.
There is nothing that would upset me more than my dad being bribed by the press. It’s like ‘Just let them run it then. Don’t you give them ammunition.’
