SHORT AND SWEET
Your journey up the ranks in the music industry has taken serious grit. Are you naturally stubborn? In a good way, yes. I would definitely say I’m persistent. Mum and Dad instilled the “never give up” attitude into us [and] helped me when it came to putting myself out there. You’re also a trained make-up artist. Is it hard to ignore terrible contouring when you’re out and about? Ever tempted to race up and start blending? I have learnt a lot of little tips and tricks along the way, so I share them around. For sure. Your recent collaboration with Bras N Things required a lingerie shoot, which happens to be a recurring stress dream of ours. Any nerves? OMG of course! It was very foreign to me, being shot in underwear. But I truly felt proud of myself afterwards. You’ve released a Christmas album, which puts you in league with festiveseason icons such as Mariah Carey. What was the pressure like? Immense, because carols are so loved. I was inspired by old-school classics, so I thought keeping it simple was probably the right way to go. The Magic of Christmas is out now.
