I've always been a little homemaker.

I was gutted to leave my boyfriend at home when I started my tour, but taking my pillow was like taking a little bit of him with me.

I can be a cruel person.

Basically, I live to do gigs.

When I'm nervous, I stutter, and I had to keep stopping and starting.

I don't think I'm such an amazing person who needs to be written about.

I'm not very ambitious at all.

I can express myself.

I'm not a natural born performer.

I love food.

I've never been a boyfriend kind of girl.

I didn't think it was special to be able to sing.

I really thought I was on the way out. My husband Blake saved my life. Often I don't know what I do, then the next day the memory returns. And then I am engulfed in shame.

I was hit by a car once on my bike, but I still rode home.

I would love to study guitar or trumpet.

I want at least five kids. I want twins.

You know how you either grow up in a Michael Jackson house or a Prince house? For me it was Michael Jackson. I could never decide whether I wanted to be Michael Jackson or marry him.

My husband is everything to me and without him it's just not the same.

Some men do think I'm a psycho bunny-boiler.

I've had everything pierced at some point.

I made an album I'm very proud of, and that's about it.

Yes, I'm still going to misbehave!

I don't listen to a lot of new stuff. I just like the old stuff. It's all quite dramatic and atmospheric. You'd have an entire story in song. I never listen to, like, white music - I couldn't sing you a Zeppelin or Floyd song.

I don't have emotional needs, only physical ones.

If I heard someone else singing like me, I would buy it in a heartbeat.

I look after people.

Some people reckoned that I looked healthier when I was bigger but I had terrible skin and no energy.

I'm not frightened of appearing vulnerable.

Since I was 16, I've felt a black cloud hangs over me.

I read a lot when I'm travelling and always have a couple of books on the go.

I'm my own worst critic, and if I don't pull off what I think I wanted to do in my head, then I won't be a happy girl.

I do suffer from depression, I suppose. Which isn't that unusual. You know, a lot of people do.

Here in England, everyone's a pop star, innit, whereas in America they believe in the term artist.

Yeah, I'm an open book.

I just like tattoos.

Every bad situation is a blues song waiting to happen.

I like pin-up girls. I'm more of a boy than a girl. I'm not a lesbian, though - not before a sambuca anyway.

I've got a crush on my backing singer.

My justification is that most people my age spend a lot of time thinking about what they're going to do for the next five or ten years. The time they spend thinking about their life, I just spend drinking.

I would say that jazz is my own language.

I just dress like... I'm an old black man. Sorry! Like I'm an old Jewish black man. I just dress like it's still the '50s.

To be honest, I think kids have got a lot more going on than adults. They've got their heads screwed on a lot better.

If you're nice to me I'll never write anything bad about you.

I don't even have a TV.

When you're around kids you can be a little kid yourself and pretend that life is magic and you don't have to be one of those sweaty people going to work every day.

I can play a lot of different instruments adequately but nothing really well.

I don't think your ability to fight has anything to do with how big you are. It's to do with how much anger is in you.

I fall in love every day. Not with people but with situations.

I saw a picture of myself when I came out of the hospital. I didn't recognize myself.
