I don't sit there writing songs, thinking, 'This would be good for Rihanna.' I don't want to be pitching out like that.

I just feel like people need role models, you know, that are dressed.

It sounds depressing, but I think when you truly love someone, you'll never stop loving them.

When someone calls you 'gay,' there's not much you can do about that because I am. Whereas, if someone calls you fat, there is something you can do about that.

Just because you're selling out shows doesn't mean you deserve better treatment than the person next door.

Hearing a whole entire room sing back to me, 'I guess it's true I'm not good at a one-night stand,' you know, I just can't explain the feeling. It's unreal. You feel like you've just read your diary to thousands of people and they've gone, 'It's okay. We still love you.'

No words can explain the way I'm missing you.

My music relies solely on the feeling. Just the feeling.

My debut album is just a diary from a lonely 21-year-old. That's what it is.

I personally think Beyonce's a strong feminist. What she's done in music and for women is unprecedented. I love her. She definitely makes me feel like more of a woman.

I'm a huge Gaga fan. I have been since I was a kid. I actually camped out overnight to see Gaga when I was 17 years old in London.

I'm really scared of flying. Like, really, really, really scared.

Oh gosh, I dyed my hair red when I was in year 11 with that L'Oreal Live stuff. It was like plumy purple - it was horrific. I looked awful; I don't know what I was thinking!

I'm addicted to making music, but I don't want to do it forever. I just want a farm. Farms make you happy.

Some artists get so comfortable now after even one or two albums and think, 'I'm the biggest artist in the world,' but it's like, yeah, you are for now, but you've gotta work so that you're remembered further, and that's what I'm trying to do.

As a youngster, when I started writing and stuff, I did actually write more from other people's perspectives. When I hit 18 and something happened to me that hurt me, I discovered that writing the truth is really therapeutic and amazing.

I don't think about whether it's gonna be a dance record or a ballad or anything when I'm making music. I sit in the studio and I think, 'How am I feeling today?' and I write how I feel. It's really, really simple.

My plan is just to love harder than I've ever loved before, hide nothing, and embrace that I'm an imperfect human being. Oh, and sadness - sadness is everything.

I've listened to female vocalists my whole life. That's what I love. I still listen to guys' vocals and don't get taken aback a lot.

I want to be a voice for that: just because I've lost weight doesn't mean that I'm happy and content with my body. Because of the media, and because of what I feel I should look like, it's always going to be a battle in my head.

The U.K. is so important to me. It's everything - it's my home. I love America, but it's so important for me to be here and be an artist and be well known here.

When I'm performing, I'm not even thinking about the song. I'm thinking about the audience.

When I write sad songs, I feel like I'm sewing up a scar in me, and the outcome always feels so much better than when I write happy ones.

I'm yet to attack French cooking, you know, where it's intense, following recipes and stuff. I'm more of a 'make it up' kind of thing.

I don't want to make music that is hot now; I want to make music that is hot forever.

I used to get very angry as I was getting older, because my voice was breaking. So I've trained my voice so religiously through my teenage years, because I wanted to be able to hit the notes that those females hit. And I can, which is great.

When I write music, it's very strange: maybe it's normal, but I see things in songs in different colors.

I'm not a really religious person, but those moments onstage feel like some sort of religious experience because no one holds back, especially 'Stay With Me' when I finish the show. It kind of turns into an anthem when I perform it live, and it feels like there's a lot of love in the room.

I've never been in a relationship before. I've only been in unrequited relationships where people haven't loved me back. I guess I'm a little bit attracted to that in a bad way.

The idea of having a house, a kid, a husband, and a dog... I love that. I also really want to open a coffee and flower shop one day, probably in Italy.

I don't have any problem with being the guy whose album people put on when they're feeling sad.

I used to love going to the garden centre as a kid. It made me feel relaxed.

When I find the right person, nothing else will matter, but I'm prepared to kiss a lot of frogs.

You love who you love, and I can't help that I like guys.

I met Kim Kardashian the other week, and she knew who I was! I walked in the room, and she was like, 'I should text Kanye saying you're here; he showed me your music.' It's really hard to digest. Also, I don't think you should digest stuff like that.

Jazz scares me. I've witnessed so many incredible singers and jazz musicians. Pop and soul music have always been the things that I felt like I could do.

I'm just very body-conscious. Sometimes I'm really proud that I don't look like other pop stars. But there's also moments where I'm like, 'Ugh, I wish I had abs like Bieber.'

I want to make the music that's not there anymore. I'm so passionate about the singing voice... What I'm trying to do actually with my album is show that it's my voice that's leading. It's my voice that's the instrument.

My mum and dad used to make me stand up at dinner parties and sing to their friends.

Anything's possible. If I turn round tomorrow and say I want to be a spaceman, I could do that. You can do whatever you want to do.

Sound-wise, I'm really limitless in the way I write songs. Whatever comes out, comes out. Every song is completely different.

Even now I doubt myself. I don't understand what people hear in my voice. I can't hear it myself, if you know what I mean.

I don't go to celebrity parties a lot. I don't really enjoy them because I really like going for it in parties. And sometimes at celebrity parties, there is no dancing on tables because people... it can be a little judgmental at times. So I tend not to go unless it is Taylor Swift's birthday party; then it's amazing.

I believe in God, but I don't know what it is - if it's a he, she, a he-she, or anything. Who knows what it is. All I know is that I feel like there's something else there.

As a kid, I collected 'Vogue' every month for three years.

I will sing happy songs, and I do sing happy songs, but the stuff that's going to move me and going to make me close my eyes is always the blues.

I loved things like Destiny's Child, and Amy Winehouse's first record came out when I was 11 years old. But as a young, young child, I was just surrounded by Stevie Wonder, Whitney Houston, Chaka Khan - just massive, soulful voices.

I'm a very ambitious person. I've been like this from a very young age. As early as 12 years old, I used to have panic attacks because I needed to know my life plan.

When I was at school and wasn't having a great time or when music wasn't going very well, I would eat, eat. Eating would make me feel better; when I felt lonely, I would eat.
