Do you see your expression through beauty as an art form? And if so, how does it feel to dissect it?
If I wasn’t working on my record, I might say, “Yeah, f*ck off, I don’t want to talk about make-up”, but when I’m working on music, I need every palette and paint at my disposal, so I like to talk about everything all the time. The way that I approach doing a fragrance is sort of like Pop Art. It’s about the commercialism of bottling fame. Everything about this fragrance reeks of a high-school artistic statement about how fame is horrible and ugly – but it smells delicious. There’s something quite juvenile about the whole thing. But to make a point of it, I’m saying anybody can have Fame – it’s £24.50! That’s the art of it.
Do your own personal beauty experiences still influence how you present yourself today?
Do you know what’s really funny, and I was kind of afraid to admit this, but I’m just going to say it anyway, ‘cos I think my fans will really appreciate it. I am throwing my best friend an engagement party this weekend, and I’m going to be seeing all these girls from high school, and I would be totally lying to you if I didn’t say I was worried about how I’m going to look! I was saying earlier, “I have to look fabulous, I have to look absolutely amazing, some of them were horrible to me!”
