Anne-Marie’s tips for life as a bur­geon­ing su­per­star

Q (UK) - - Anne-Marie -

How to sur­vive on a tour­bus:

“I love a bus. I switch the air-con off cos my body tem­per­a­ture is three de­grees lower than ev­ery­one else’s in the whole world. Ev­ery­one hates me cos they wake up sweat­ing.”

How to fill an af­ter­noon off:

“Get a pierc­ing. Fuck it!” [ She ac­tu­ally got a new ear pierc­ing this af­ter­noon.]

How to be a woman in a male-dom­i­nated in­dus­try:

“I’m up­front and out­spo­ken. I have no prob­lem telling peo­ple my ideas and what I think things should be like. Hav­ing that at­ti­tude makes me not fear that I’m a woman.”

How to avoid be­ing recog­nised:

“I just wear shit clothes and I don’t do my hair, I don’t wear make-up and I wear hats and glasses. I don’t go out to be recog­nised. That makes me feel sick.”

What to do on a day back home in Til­bury:

“Lake­side shop­ping cen­tre. That’s where I used to go when I didn’t have money but just walked around the shops. We’ve got good chicken shops, ke­babs and the fish’n’chip shops.”

How to avoid karate in­juries:

“I went back the other day for the first time in ages. As soon as some­one kicked my arm I was bruised. The more you do it the less your body bruises.”

How to con­tact El­ton John:

“I ain’t got his mo­bile num­ber, ha.”
