The singer-songwriter divulges some of her eating habits

The singer-songwriter and one-time member of Antony and the Johnsons divulges some of her eating habits

What time is breakfast?
Depending on the night before, 9 or 11.30.

Tea or coffee?
Rooibos tea. The doctor swore me off coffee even though I die inside every time I smell it …

Smoking or non-smoking?
One after the show. Thankfully I don’t long for more than that.

Sweet or savoury snacks?
Both at the same time, please.

What food do you miss when you tour?
Fresh pressed green juice. I know, I’m a hippie, but I just love drinking grass.

Who’s the best cook you know?
My friend Thatcher Keats, who also does all my photos.

What’s on your rider?
Again, a lot of hippie food. Fruit, vegetables, salads, nuts, dark chocolate, dried figs and dates, smoked salmon, vine leaves …

Which country/ city has the best food?
Italy in general

Do you eat out a lot?
I have to. I’ve got no choice!

Do you eat or drink onstage?
Singing and eating do not go together for me. I drink hot Throat Coat tea with honey and water.
