LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Singing sensation Paloma Faith doesn’t mind if you think she sounds like some of her British singing sisters!
The 27-year-old, whose new album “Fall to Grace” is available now, stopped by Access Hollywood Live on Monday to talk about some of the comparisons she’s heard.
“I’m hearing Adele and Amy Winehouse [comparisons] and I’m very happy about it because I think they’re amazing, so I can’t complain,” she told Billy Bush and Kit Hoover. “I’d be really worried if it was someone I didn’t like.”
The singer — who performed her new song, “Picking Up the Pieces,” live (see Paloma sing, HERE!) — also gets compared to a singer of another era – but with a twist.
“Someone described me the other day as a rock and roll Barbra Streisand,” she continued. “If I can sell as many records as Barbra Streisand, I would be happy.”
Paloma, known for her fashion forward looks, also chatted about why style is so important to her – especially when it comes to relationships.
“I’ve always seen [fashion] as a suit of armor,” she explained. “I’m not the kind of girl who turns up to a date where she gets dumped, not really dressed up. If you’re going to dump me, I’m going to look the best I’ve ever looked.
Adding, “So I tend to dress up to kind of give myself confidence. I couldn’t go on stage and sing my song in my pajamas… I am Grace Jones inside!”
