Jessie Ware, of Mercury Prize nomination 'fame', has been talking to The Guardian about her awkward stage 'banter'.
The '110%' hitmaker observed how "At the beginning of the year, I was really awkward and apologetic being on the stage… But now … oh my God, I just fill the silence with completely awkward sentences."
She goes on to describe an embarrassing moment at a press show in New York: "I was so nervous that I started talking about Kim Kardashian's cat dying", she recalls, "and I said that I found out through Instagram…Pretty much suggesting that Kim Kardashian had posted a picture of her dead cat."
Jessie muses that any attempt she makes at audience interaction "often just goes a bit wrong", but she has figured out a solution to the problem. "I've told my band to just start playing whenever I go too far", she asserts.
