“It spurs me on. I’m going to get over that, I’m a good songwriter, my kids are happy, the band is great and I’ve almost sorted out all my debts. At least I’ve never sold my story. I’ve had countless offers but I’d rather be in a bedsit council flat than splashed all over Hello! or the tabloids. I really would, I have a responsibility to my band and my children as well.

Now’s the time to say we’ve got to cut this off until hopefully he sorts himself out” – On Pete Doherty.
“I’ve always called him dad. It’s a really complicated set-up, ‘cos he’s been a dad to me all my life. No disrespect to my real father, cos I love him too, but Carlton was there. And I had a step-dad some of the time as well.” – On her uncle.
I know that people are interested, and I understand why, but I don’t want that stuff to overshadow my life. It’s just the way it is.

Listen to the LP or come and see my band. I don’t like it when people write about my life and don’t even mention the music.
