“Those days when she was in secondary school. So I look at her. Sometimes I look at her pictures like is she the one? Maybe it’s she, maybe she’s not.
“You know when somebody will be like “ah, I’m a fan!” But look at her right now. She’s a great, super-duper international superstar. I didn’t know she could sing you know, it’s crazy!”
