Just saw her on the BBC. How rude was she to that interviewer? She needs a slap...

I like her as an artist. Have ever so slightly gone off her...

She doesn't have the mental capacity to cope with it? She made a bit of an arsey comment! She didn't go on a murderous rampage around the studio.

She lives very much in the real world how ridiculous

Only people who work "in the office " live in the real world it seems.

'ishoos' and 'mental capacity' breadyegg - can I suggest that you read up about mental health problems (or comments about SOC on this thread, for that matter).

A man with her history of mental health problems would not have been patronised like that.

And as other posters have pointed out, she does live in the 'real' world.

Did you watch 'The Office' breadyegg.
Are you one of those people who didn't understand what was so funny about it?

FellatioNels0n Wed 20-Feb-13 15:41:52

I didn't see it but I'm not surprised. She's famous for it - like a female Van Morrison! I've never heard her say anything pleasant yet. I really like her as an artist too, but she is an unlikeable, self-absorbed twat.

'Are you trying to convince me or yourself?'

I thought this was a fantastic question ... just wrong time and wrong place.

It really did seem she was trying to convince herself.grin

breadyegg surely you can see that the 'she needs a slap' comment was ill advised?

FlouncingMintyy Wed 20-Feb-13 18:46:56

Why the hell shouldn't be interviewed if she has mental health problems? Why not? Please expand.

Clearly anyone who has had any problem with their mental health shouldn't be allowed on the television.

Mitchy1nge Wed 20-Feb-13 19:19:51

well that wipes out a lot of people in the entertainment industry, and politics, straight away

MadameBoolala Wed 20-Feb-13 19:22:55

and most offices in the 'real world'.

Watch it

Well, I watched the interview on Youtube and I don't really see what the fuss is all about? First of all, he hardly interviewed her at all. Said that every interview he's seen "drags up all of her past" after just mentioning her mental health problems, showed no interest in her music, said one song was "wildly optimistic" (which has a negative connotation) and generally sounded like an officious prat.

She still has a pair of the most gorgeous eyes I have ever seen.

FellatioNels0n Sat 23-Feb-13 12:49:34

Right. Just watched it. First of all I thought it was completely inappropriate to start a very casual interview (if you can even call it that) standing up and go bam! straight in with a very personal reference to her difficult past and a veiled reference to her mental health. And his comment 'are you trying to convince me or yourself?' was appalling in the context in which is was said. Crass, awkward, unprofessional. I'm not surprised she was a bit hmm about it. I have sympathy for her there - he was an arse.

However, part of being an artist with something to promote is that you have to tout yourself around radio shows and TV studios, and put up with some pretty invasive or uninspiring crap and I think she could have done herself more favours if she'd taken it with a bit more grace. if you don't like the promos, just don't do them. She probably should have bollocked him off air, not on it, but she was right to be irritated.

And that is a bloody fantastic song. I remember the first time I heard it, I nearly had to stop my car I was so blown away by it.
