WHAT WOULD BE YOUR ADVICE TO YOUR YOUNGER SELF?/THE BEST ADVICE YOU'VE BEEN GIVEN?

Release music earlier and never underplay your achievements.

WHAT MAKES A WOMAN ELECTRIC?

Her persistence and determination.

HAVE YOU COME UP AGAINST RESISTANCE WITH WHAT YOU’RE DOING? HOW DID YOU MANAGE IT?

I play the game and know when to call shit out.

WHAT MAKES YOU WANT TO GIVE UP? HOW DO YOU BOUNCE BACK?

Not reaching my own goals gets me right down, but I just try again.

Tina Fey, Bjork, Madonna, Julia Gillard and my Mum, Grandma n Sis.

DO YOU HAVE ANY LITTLE SECRETS TO FOLLOWING YOUR PASSION?

Passion is still work, be okay with that.

WHAT WERE YOU LIKE AS A KID? HAS ANYTHING CHANGED?

Bossy, so not really!

WHAT WERE YOU LIKE AS A TEENAGER? WHAT MAJOR THINGS DID YOU COME TO REALISE AS YOU GREW UP?

I didn't love my surroundings and didn't totally feel myself. I only released when I reached my 20s and felt 100% me. I wasn't unhappy, but definitely realised something was missing.

IF YOU COULD CHANGE ANYTHING IN THE WORLD, WHAT WOULD IT BE?

BREXIT
