“Sometimes, being onstage is like having sex with my fans,” she says. “They’re the only people on the planet who in an instant can make me just lose it.”
That said, she really DID lose it at a recent performance… where she was suffering from food poisoning throughout her show and would run backstage to… well… I’ll let her explain.
“…the other night, in London, I had food poisoning. I was vomiting backstage during the changes… “Nobody knew…I just Jedi mind-tricked my body. [I told myself] ‘You will not vomit onstage.'”
“I was also thinking, If I do, they are going to think I’m drunk. And I don’t want them to think I am human, let alone drunk. I certainly wouldn’t want them to think I had something so ordinary as food poisoning.”
