The Texas frontwoman on why Let's Get It On is her favourite album of all time, the French movie that recently made her cry and the best concert she ever saw
There’s something special about seeing a real work of art for the first time that you’ve only previously known through seeing it in books or magazines. I first saw Edgar Degas’ Dancing Girls in print at the age of seven because I was really into ballet. I got to see the actual painting when I was 12 and the depth of it just astonished me. Recently I bought an amazing pencil drawing of Judy Garland by the illustrator Nina Fowler. She captures the pain and loneliness in Garland’s life so exquisitely.
