You change up your look constantly. Like, it’s incredible that you dyed your eyebrows this morning. You just had those rainbow braids, and they were so good.
“Aw, you liked that! Thank you!”
They were amazing. What inspires you to change things up?
“You know, people always ask me that, and they don’t understand because I don’t even understand. I just wake up, and I have a feeling that I want to do something, and I just do it.
You’re big on the festival circuit, so tell me a little bit about your packing list for Glastonbury.
“Always a pair of boots, because it’s going to get muddy. I’ve got this amazing, gangster, leather jacket, a ton of denim, because you don’t really get to wash during the festival. And, always some bright makeup.
Anything specific in terms of makeup?
“Well, I’m thinking about dyeing my eyebrows purple after today. [Editor's note: We’re still waiting on those, Rita!] I don’t know what it will look like, but we’ll see!”
So, let’s chat My NY. You shot in NYC — what was that like?
“While I was shooting this, we did it in the middle of Times Square and it was freezing. I was wearing a dress like this but in pink and I just remember being so cold but smelling so great at the same time.”
That’s the most important thing!
“No, I’m very big on smelling good all the time. It’s always a very big deal for me. It’s very disappointing when you meet somebody and they don’t smell good — especially with guys. So, I make sure I do my part and smell nice. It’s the least I could do.”
Did you find any new places you loved while you were shooting in the city?
“I found this place called The Spotted Pig, and I’m obsessed with it. It's got the best burgers, and it reminds me a bit of a pub. My dad owns three pubs in London, so it kind of reminded me of home. They have beers there — you can pour your own pint. I liked it there a lot.”
Any old standbys from when you were living there?
“I remember when I was recording my first album, I had an allowance so I had enough money to eat and stuff. I spent it all in this boutique called LF. It would just stock really cool things, but for cheap.”
Where would you see yourself wearing this fragrance?
“I always imagined myself riding a bike in the middle of New York City, having no jumper on. Do you know when it’s really humid in New York — it’s crazy in the summertime — and you’re wearing no jacket. You’re not even carrying a handbag, just your phone and some lipstick, and a card in your pocket. You’re just free.
