    3. ‘The only person I really believe in is me.’

    4. ‘I do know the effect that music still has on me – I’m completely vulnerable to it. I’m seduced by it.’

    5. ‘Being hot never hurts!’

    6. ‘I thought I’d live to a ripe old age, because I always felt there was a lot to do. I had a driven feeling. I always thought in the present.’

    11. ‘Regardless of what I say about trying to be better at what I do, I rely on looks a lot. Women’s calling cards, unfortunately, are based on their looks. As far as ageing goes, it’s rough.’
