Here’s what the 22-year-old English singer had to share with the mag:
On keeping it real: “I’m not good at being a picture-perfect pop star, happy all the time. If I’m having a bad day, I can’t pretend.”
On her drive to succeed: “I have a business mind, I have a real drive—I want to have an empire. I want to have more of a legacy, and I think just because I wear what I wear, and am a pop star, doesn’t mean I can’t have that.”
On being a control freak: “Power gets me off. I always want more than I have.”
