On critics questioning her recent appearance on the Eminem single, “Love The Way You Lie” and how, in their view, it glamorises domestic violence: “He [Eminem] confronted himself on it. He basically gives insight into what goes on in the mind of a couple in a domestically violent relationship. I love that in every verse it just gets to that point where she wants to leave, she wants to leave, she leaves, she leaves, she leaves… but then the hook always comes back.”

On whether she related to the song on a persona level: “Absolutely. Absolutely! Every word in that song is true. It would take somebody who’s been on the inside to understand how magical those lyrics are.”

On being a different person: “I was very lost. I have to say I felt really confused. It was really strange because… ‘Aaagh!’ I hate talking about it but it was really crazy because I felt so out of touch with myself and when that happens…It’s just this one empty vase. I felt like an empty vessel. I’m just… I feel like… I smile for real this time. Eventually, I remember waking up one day and I knew I was over it. One day. I remember I was in New York at the Trump Hotel and I woke up and I just knew I was over it.”
