Talking to the Belfast Telegraph she said that since the video 'went viral' "everyone just wants to talk about my face. And I get very personal messages coming to me, like hate mail, so there is a flipside to the attention my music has been getting".
One of the ways she changed in order to be taken more seriously was to sing in a lower register. "I sang one way, and now sing another and I see what people are drawn to. I see the difference," she said.
Her debut album 'Born To Die' is finally released on January 30.
