I’m uneasy with fame so I do my best to avoid places that will bring me more attention.
I just aspire to pick people up. That’s my ambition.
Radio interviews are really snappy and I’m just bad at that. I just close down.
The anxiety I feel when I’m late is nothing like the anxiety I feel when I’m on time.
I can’t see myself just endlessly singing the same songs over and over again.
When you tour, you regain the music and the connection with the audience.
When I go into the studio, I completely detach. I let my emotions come out.
I have no technical training and am completely uneducated in music.
I’m not shy or reclusive. I just spend my time with people rather than journalists.
I always see myself as much more of a musician than a celebrity.
I’ve got absolutely no real perception, properly, of time.
To be a mother you must be strong. Even if you don’t feel it, you have to pretend.
I’ve never associated myself with other singers, certainly not female singers.
If you’re only making an album every 10 years, it better be good.
I think you only really feel like an outsider if you’ve been an insider.
Most of my lyrics are little stories about my experiences or those of my friends.
I don’t get easily bored. I’m not that kind of person.
