OH, MY! WHAT DID YOU DO?
”I was like, ‘It’s going to be fine, I just need to find my way back. I have a great sense of direction.’ But I couldn’t find it! So I waited outside a police station for four hours. Someone thought I was homeless! They gave me a piece of bread and a bible. I managed to borrow a guy’s mobile and Facebooked my friends to tell them I was lost. My guitarist finally found me and when we got to the house, I realised that I had found the house [earlier], but when I rung on the doorbell, no one answered, so I thought it was the wrong one. They were all sleeping inside! So that was a memorable summer. But honestly, everything was so good except for that.”
IF YOU COULD HAVE A PERFECT SUMMER, WHAT WOULD IT CONSIST OF?
”Not getting lost… [laughs] But hiking would be so nice. Maybe somewhere hot, but not like 35-degree hot. California or Thailand? I want to do something sporty because I feel maybe we should try something different [laughs].”
WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO WEAR IN THE SUMMER?
”I like fresh white t-shirts, high-waisted denim shorts and sneakers. It’s nice to accessorise. I say that, but if I’m on a proper summer holiday, I hate stuff on me, like a necklace, because it’s sweaty, you know? And I love how you don’t have to wear makeup. It’s so sexy and chill.”
THE SUN IS SHINING IN LONDON ON A HOT JULY DAY, WHERE WOULD WE FIND YOU AND WHAT WOULD YOU BE DOING?
”Hampstead Heath. I walk my dog there and we play baseball.”
WHEN WE SAY SUMMER, WHAT DO YOU THINK OF FIRST?
”Skateboarding – I got into it three years ago. One of my friends taught me.”
WERE YOU A NATURAL?
”Nope! [laughs] It took me a month to just balance on the board. I’m not even good. I can cruise and that’s about it, [laughs] but I love it.”
