Charli, being a huge Disney fan, would want to be Alice in Wonderland because “she’s just on a great trip, like the whole time”. She would also want to be The Little Mermaid because she said she’s “actually a terrible swimmer” and thinks it would be “really cool to be a mermaid for a day and be amazing at swimming”.

Charli recalled when Marina and the Diamonds texted her after she had answered this question in another interview and told us that she said, “Just so you know, I’d would be really good at catching fish, so good choice!” Charli also imagines that Katy Perry “would be good morale” and “would be able to laugh at most situations, whereas [she] would just feel very depressed”. “Rita (Ora)’s just pretty fun, so I guess, if things get really bad, we could just have a massive party and just try to forget everything. I’m sure she would be down for that.”

Sporting her cat-eyed sunglasses throughout her press conference in Singapore and seeing the same pair on her at the concert made us wonder if she was ever going to take that off.

Thankfully, the singer put her shades up in her hair about mid-concert, taking a great look at the crowd, and she continued with sunglasses off until the end.

Even at her own headlining tour concert, Charli said “Hi, I’m Charli XCX” twice, as if the fans didn’t already know her name.

“I don’t see myself as being famous so I can’t let something that I don’t think that I am change me. I’m not really bothered by fame, I just want to make my records and do my shows,” said Charli.

She also talked about her fans endearingly: “I don’t have too much time to [casually] walk down the street, which is sad, but when I do, my fans are all very sweet and very nice, so there’ve been no crazy scary incidents.”

Speaking about her music video for ‘Famous’, the singer said, “The way the Internet can be used sometimes is very vicious and hysterical,” and added that “It’s about the Internet being pushed so far in the wrong direction that somebody getting electrocuted and dying is like ‘O-M-G like slay I can’t believe that just happened’, like ‘regram this’ (laughs) I just wanted to make a video about that because L-O-L why not?”
