How long have you been a fan of Coca-Cola Classic?
I’ve always been a fan of Coca-Cola ever since I was young. I have so many memories of drinking Coca-Cola. It’s just the taste that is so special and refreshing. It just reminds me of everything stopping as soon as you open that can and enjoy the first few sips.
How do you drink yours?
If I have lipstick on, then definitely through a straw. As for the drink, if I’m not on the move then pouring it into a glass with ice. I don’t need lemon or lime. Just ice.
What do you love about new Coca-Cola Zero Sugar?
I love the fact that it tastes just like the real thing but has no sugar.
Who would you most like to share a Coke with?
Marilyn Monroe, David Bowie and Elvis.
Do you have a funny Coca-Cola-related story?
I always ask for Coca-Cola on my rider - I can’t go without it in my dressing room at shows!
If you had to pick three qualities that you share with a bottle of Coke, what would they be?
The colour red is my signature lip colour - I love it! I would say the fizzy qualities as I'm bubbly and always laughing and the sweetness of the taste I would say matches my personality.
If you were a superhero what would be your special power?
Either to be invisible, or immortality.
What’s the biggest inspiration for your music right now?
Just being true to myself and my roots and being happy making music that reflects my personality.
You have such a distinctive style – what are your style secrets?
I just don't follow any rules. I just wear whatever I feel comfortable in that day.
Do you have any hair or beauty hacks?
Drink lots of water. I have a few beauty products I love to use, but mainly drink water, and always use a lip liner with a red lip.
What might your fans be surprised to know about you?
People always seem to be surprised to know I'm left handed, but I have no idea why!
Are you a girly girl or tomboy?
I’ve been asked that lots of times before and it always depends where I am, what I’m doing. I love both, sometimes it’s great just to wear a pair of baggy jeans and t-shirt and be a total tomboy. You feel like you can be more relaxed and run around. I then love dressing up and getting all glam, that’s the moment I feel like a real girly girl, getting nails done, hair done and then wearing a beautiful dress. I’m lucky as I get to wear so many amazing dresses.
What’s your holiday style - flop and drop, or active and adventurous?
I just love to chill on holidays, I’m always doing a hundred different things for work and being on the go all the time that when I go on holiday I just like to relax.
