Nick Knight, Directed the music video for ’Pagan Poetry’

I wanted to strip her down. She’s actually quite raw, womanly and sexy. There’s a different side to her that doesn’t come across normally in her videos. That’s what I asked her to do and that’s what she did. Her dress stops just below her breasts and she’s sewn pearls into her skin.

She approached me with the idea. Her original idea in Iceland was to sew pearls into her nipples. She wanted to show her sexuality.

There are two obvious piercings right at the end. If anybody is squeamish they should avoid the last 20 seconds. The piercings are in the back. But it’s not tribal or S&M - it’s about a women’s love for a man., 2001
