On her second album:
"I'm writing the songs now, and then I'll want to rehearse them for a while. As much as I love my first album, there are still things that I wish I had done differently. So I don't want to rush anything. You're only as good as your last record, so if I put out something that's shit, nobody's going to buy it. If it's crap, people will be like, "Why was she ever such a big deal?" So I have to take my time. I mean, if it takes me three years, I imagine people will start getting a bit nervy...but I'll do my best to avoid that."
On the high point in her career:
"Winning the Grammys! To be nominated for a Grammy would have been a highlight, but winning just blew my mind."
On the worst show she ever played:
"One of my first gigs, in 2006, in a dinky little pub in East London. I didn't realize that I was headlining: I thought I was on at 8 P.M., but it turned out that I wasn't on until about 2 A.M. It was a Friday night, so I had invited all my friends and my family, and there were probably another 300 people there who had heard about me and come to watch me. Anyway, I got so drunk between 8 and 2 A.M., I played three songs, I forgot the words, and I fell off my chair. It was a free show, thankfully. Can you imagine paying to see someone forget their own lyrics and fall off their chair? Worst thing ever. That's why I stopped drinking".
On her go to party song:
"When I want to party, I play "Crazy in Love." That's always been the song that my friends and I get ready to; or before I go on a first date, I play it to feel sexy."
