The singer who is currently a judge onX Factor UK also opened up about her drive to succeed, growing up and her celebrity life style.
On her family
“The values that were important growing up were education, respecting your elders … that’s how we were raised. I wouldn’t say it was strict, but there are certain things you have to do in our household. It’s a ‘You definitely have to show up for Christmas dinner’ vibe. We’re from a small community, so you’re not only representing yourself, you’re representing your family.”
On leading a balanced life
“I feel my strongest onstage. I still, to this day, do not know anything better. And when I’ve been really good with my body—no alcohol, no late nights, watching my diet, drinking water … I start feeling like a superhero!”
“She works so hard. She looks at every shot, every angle. I couldn’t believe what I was seeing. And I was, like, ‘That’s exactly where we’re going.’ There’s a reason things get put in front of you like that. There’s a reason I saw her work ethic that night.”
