This year, fame came at you like a freight train. How are you handling your world domination? Are you sleeping at night?

Ugh! I have been working sooo much. Success came and now that somany eyes are on me, I feel I have to deliver. And it’s a business. No joke. I guess I am stressing more than I should be, and I think I am becoming more guarded.

Who are your biggest style icons?

Grace Jones definitely. So amazing. And Cyndi Lauper, I loved her right from when I was a little girl. And Janet Jackson of course. And Boy George. I always loved the way he dressed, and his music too.

Tell me about your new album. What is the vibe?

The album is like a collage of all my emotions. I am not sticking to any particular style. I am doing what I feel without restrictions. So it’s very free and very me.
