Emeli Sande is trying to cut down on alcohol consumption.
The 35-year-old pop star started drinking champagne after discovering it’s low in calories, but is now trying to “wean off” sparkling wine so she can feel “healthier and happier”.
She said: “Champagne is my favourite. I googled ‘lowest calorie’ and it was champagne, so it was a diet choice at first. So yeah, it only makes sense. It’s my favorite drink, but I’m trying to. Step back and detox. You feel healthier, happier, and clearer, but it’s so lovely and bubbly!”
Meanwhile, the ‘Next To Me’ singer – who has written and released four studio albums to date – admitted she would now “frustrate” her early songwriting efforts because of how “serious” she tried be when she was little
Speaking on the ‘Dish’ podcast, he told hosts Nick Grimshaw and Angela Hartnett: “[My first songs] It makes me a little anxious because I was so… when I read them I can just tell I was serious. I was eight years old and I was trying to be considered this very serious artist. Like, “Guys, I’m not going to write about love, I’m going to write all this political stuff!” But there was a song called ‘Yesterday’s Tomorrow’ and it was about the stage and the stage, and if we don’t learn from the past, we set the same stage and all that. It was a bit deep!
“So my friends and I wrote one for the school talent show. It was about an alien coming to earth. It was like ‘Coming from the space planet, oh baby, coming from miles away . What’s your name? Oh, love my baby”. ..’ Like all that. It’s fun though – starting something from nothing and that’s why I fell in love with it as a kid. It felt so powerful. You have this little magical power and people will listen to you if you sing.”
