"I was an alcoholic and a drug addict, and I sobered up and I decided I didn’t want to be an artist anymore because I was starting to get a little bit famous and it was destabilizing in some way.

"I thought, ‘What doesn’t exist in pop music at the moment?’ And it was mystery!"

During an interview with Interview magazine in 2015, she added: "When people say, 'Show your face, you’re not ugly.' I want to say, 'I know. I’m not doing it because I think I’m ugly; I’m trying to have some control over my image. And I’m allowed to maintain some modicum of privacy.

"But also I would like not to be picked apart or for people to observe when I put on ten pounds or take off ten pounds or I have a hair extension out of place or my fake tan is botched.'"
