Singer interviews with Chrissy Iley of The Sunday Times Style to talk about music, love, and her insecurities. Photos by Troy Jensen.On insecurity:
She doesn't enjoy being snapped by the paparazzi, however. So many contradictions. "I am a pretty insecure person," she says, "but I have to get over that because this is the reality of my life. I look better than I looked a few months ago, but I am definitely not one of those people who says, 'I look amazing today.'
I have to point out this is a rented house - I would never have overhead lighting. High hats, they call them. In my apartment in New York, it's all recessed lighting, chandeliers, candles. This lighting is abusive."On dieting
: "Yes. My diet is very bleak." Bleak is one of her favourite words. She giggles. "I overuse the word because there is a lot of bleakness going on. My bleak diet is horrendous, but I don't want to tell anyone about it because it's none of their business." She looks tiny. Even her much-photographed breasts are reined in. Whatever it is, I tell her, the bleak diet is working well. She sinks further back into her pillows. "I just don't want people commenting." It seems she is hurt by nasty comments.
I saw a photo of her online recently eating ice cream. "Ice cream? Not on the bleak diet," she says. "That must have been very old."( Collapse )Original articleArticle reprinted in fullPhotos (no individual galleries)
