Being single can feel empowering and independence is hugely attractive. It’s one of the things I look for in a man. I like a guy to be happy in his own skin with a life of his own. Good relationships are when you’re happy together and apart – though if you do spend time apart, the Skype thing can be frustrating. It’s not a substitute for a proper hug.
Ignoring fame was my rebellion, in a funny way. I was insistent on being normal and doing normal things. It probably wasn’t advisable to go to college in America and room with a complete stranger. And it probably wasn’t wise to share a bathroom with eight other people in a coed dorm. Looking back, that was crazy.
