Need to Meet: Rumer Video
To celebrate the stateside release of her debut album, the English songbird shares her dream duet, her frustrations with style icons, and her go-to karaoke song.
Hi, this is Rumer, and you're watching MarieClaire.com.
Were you there for me? Will you belong to me? Am I forgiven?
It's kind of warm and softy. I sing a song, write a music that's autobiographical but it's kind of soul/jazz style. In my phone are songs that mean a lot to me, that come from my, you know, soul searching, and my like, experiences that I've had, you know, like any writer would write about. [unknown] or Gamble & Huff or Chic. I'm totally turned on people who immediately reach for the phone, you know, and then whatever comes on the phone, it takes my very first [unknown], which is really bad. X Factor USA? Oh my God. It's brilliant. L.A. Reid is so attractive. I find him really attractive. I'm really self-possessed. I could be quite a moody, which way it is. Self, you know, destructive. [unknown]. A style icon? I mean, really? It's like you got a style icon all you want, but I don't have the body to go with it, but I could say I love in a bikini and a swimsuit on the beach, but would I really wear that swimsuit? No. I think that we can all be naked. I think that's sort of really, not a sexual way but just you know, I just-- I find them very restricting, really. I'm much happier when I'm not wearing clothes. Trying to poo.
Can you do it all day?
That is enough. Change, change, change. Change cool.
