There’s always going to be that pressure when you’re in front of the camera. When you’re famous it’s just an extreme version of reality and there’s a pressure to look a certain way.
But things move in circles: one minute it’s the models who are famous, then it’s the actresses, then it’s the designers.
I was a shy kid, but somehow I knew I would make it as a performer. I’d always be telling my mum that I was going to be a famous singer. In my school yearbooks I would write, ‘Remember me when I’m famous.’ I knew I had a gift.
I don’t want to be more famous than what I have right now. At least in that sense where people come up to me in the grocery store.
