I've always been attracted to weirdos.
I have a little antennae, and even when I'm trying not to be, I'm connected with the bloody zeitgeist.
I work with men a lot, and there's a yin and a yang that goes on when you work one guy and one girl. And there's things that I bring that they don't bring and things they bring and I don't bring.
My da used to sing 'Take Her Up to Monto' to me when we were walking down the street - he still does, actually - because it's got a walking tempo, and I still sing it to myself when I'm walking along.
I don't have a personal stylist, because I don't need one. I just really enjoy meeting designers and picking up clothes.
You can't get a better education in what it is to write songs until you listen to American soul music.
