1. Her first boyfriend was a Manga character.
‘When I was 12, me and my two best friends had a crush on this character Shiryu from a cartoon called ‘Saint Seiya’. We used to draw all afternoon and make up stories about being his girlfriends.’

2. Dental hygiene is very important to her.
‘I only have one cavity and I have three toothbrushes. My favourite one is this soft one that my dentist gave to me: it’s Swiss, it’s brown and has pink bristles.’

3. She’s never jumping out of a plane again.
‘I was just with some people and they said, ‘Let’s go’. I didn’t even think about it. Then I was like, ‘What the fuck am I doing?’ Once you land there’s this super huge rush, you feel really high and then you pass out. The adrenaline is too strong.’

4. Lovefoxxx loves karaoke.
‘Last year, when we were recording the album, we found a shitty bar in LA that has karaoke; we would go twice a week. Some songs are very hard and you don’t realise until you try to sing them, like ‘Watching the Detectives’ by Elvis Costello, but it’s so fun.’

5. She’s covered in scars.
‘I have one on my face that is from my father – he had a helium cylinder that exploded. I have many on my knees from rollerskating, running and doing no good. I have one from the day we released our first album in Brazil. This fan climbed onstage and tried to kiss me. I pushed him, he fell off stage and I fell over the monitor and ripped my right elbow. I didn’t like that scar so I covered it with a tattoo of a fish spine.’
