I am fairly classless because it is very difficult to class someone who comes from a mixed marriage.Sade Adu
I'm not anti-fashion, but I've always had a bit of a punk attitude. That's important, I think. I do my own thing.Sade Adu
People are so used to having their lives filmed, they're not even conscious of having cameras around. I still have that sort of suspicion when a camera comes out. I view it as a thing to fear.Sade Adu
