Fame has never really been my thing. I have always been a bit bothered by it. In Iceland when I was 11, I did a record and people started recognising me in the street and kids in school started talking about me, in a nice way, but I just couldn’t deal with the attention. It was a platinum seller in Iceland and they wanted me to do another one and I said ’no’.

Half of me is completely fine and very very happy about it, flabbergasted, you know ? But the other half of me is : ’Alright, is it over now, then ?’ Because, in Iceland, I guess it’s so easy to be famous.
