  58. “I can’t stand stage mothers. It doesn’t work. You definitely feel that with the new generation of pop stars right now they’ve all managed to work it out for themselves.

  59. “I want to look classy and sophisticated. For the “Running” video, I wanted to make a bit of a statement and to be slightly over-the-top.
