#Quote
1[on Carrie Fisher] Ten years ago, I sat down at a restaurant with some mutual friends and she was at the end of the table. I was about to record "Back to Bedlam" and she unbelievably offered up her home to me. Outside my room she put a cardboard cutout of herself as Princess Leia, with her hair up in a bun. It was outside my bedroom, protecting me at night. This time around, I stayed with her again, and she gave me a lightsaber so I was safe. She's a very special, bright person - so bright that people might think she's a bit crazy.
2[on Elton John] The kindest man I've ever met. On a music level, on a friendship level, on a humanitarian level this is an incredibly special person - and that's not including his other great talent, which is he is an incredible songwriter and a formidable performer.
3I know I'm a pop star. But sometime I'd like to be a rock star.
4I think Elton (Elton John) comes from a really special period. Phenomenal singer-songwriters, from David Bowie and Elton, Paul Simon.
5Having been snubbed by the Mobos (Music of Black Origin awards) this year and deeply hurt and upset by that, I am creating the Mopos - The Music of Posh Origin. I'm hoping to beat Coldplay and Keane.
6(at the 2006 Ivor Novello Awards) I'm going to be rude about this before anyone else has the chance - thank you so much for the award for most overplayed song.
7Things take a long time, but when it's right things move fast.
8It's always nice to be able to capture your life's experiences in a song and hold the emotion in that way.
9I don't think about Norfolk as I write songs.
10I think sensitive is the wrong description of me. I'm British, actually, so quite bad at expressing myself in conversation, as any ex-girlfriend will tell you. I'm probably emotionally stunted.
