The “Smile” singer was recently featured in Cosmopolitan Magazine‘s June 2014 issue, where she goes into detail about her album’s title and being inspired by Kanye West. Apparently, the album is very much a tribute to the superstar music maker.
Check out Lily’s photo shoot and a few snippets from her interview below.
On naming her new album Sheezus:
“Because Kanye West, who I’m a massive fan of, had an album called Yeezus. I respect him for many different reasons, not just his music but also as a personality. He is always open, honest, true to his word, and doesn’t give a hmm-mmm what anybody thinks. If that makes him Yeezus, then I sure as hell will be Sheezus.”
On when she knew she wanted to be a star:
“My dad’s an actor, and he took me on location once when he was shooting a film. He must have been really hungover, because his assistant came, woke him up, pulled him out of bed, gave him a cup of coffee, ran him a bath, then got him dressed and put him in a car. I was like, ‘That’s cool. I’d like to live like that.’”
On the one thing she does before bed every night:
“I can’t go to bed until I’ve ticked off everything on my list in my notes on my iPhone or until I’ve finished my flagged e-mails. There’s probably eight or nine things a day, on average. I know I can go to bed when I’ve done the last flagged thing.”
We can’t wait to hear the album when it hits stores this week on Monday, May 5th.
