Have you experienced the intensity of Jared Leto’s eyes boring into your soul and questioning your immediate presence in his life, as you stood, frozen with fear, transfixed by his symmetry while simultaneously blinded by his neon pink beanie? No? I have! (It was fucking terrifying! He didn’t like me much! It was beyond awkward! I’ll tell you about it another time! I get chills just thinking about it!)
Jared, Craig David, Kesha, George Ezra, Rita Ora, Sam Smith and London Grammar were among a few of the names I never imagined I’d have the pleasure of interviewing – largely because the thought of interviewing anyone is enough to send me darting towards the laydeez room with fear-induced diarrhoea – and yet it happened! (The interviewing – not the diarrhoea. Well, actually…)
I have Radio 1 to thank for my plethora of music-based anecdotes and, in a bid to be a little more professional, I’ve gathered a smattering of my writing from my time at the Beeb. Enjoy!
