Interview for Star

60 seconds with... ANASTACIA

Whatís the worst thing youíve done while drunk?
I donít remember. When I drink lots I forget! I think I was British in a previous life based on my drinking abilities!

When did you last use public transport?
Last year when I took the Tube with my ex-husband [Wayne Newton]. But I canít figure out the Tube unless I have someone to help me!

Whatís the most extravagant thing youíve ever bought?
I bought a £65,000 Franck Muller diamond watch when I found out I had cancer, as I didnít know where life was going. If I was going to go out, I was going to go spending!

When did you last say: ďI love youĒ?
To my Yorkshire terrier dog called Freak this morning.

Have you ever cheated on anyone in the past?
When I was 22 I liked a guy more than my boyfriend, but rather than break up, I cheated on him. I felt so bad it has stopped me doing it again.

What do you most dislike about yourself?
I am my own biggest critic and keep pushing myself. I look after other people much better - Iím a giver rather than a receiver.

When was the last time you cried?
On 12 August. I was singing I Belong To You on stage and it touched a nerve.

Are there any celebsí numbers on your mobile?
James Blunt is the latest addition. We met on a plane, and a 12-hour flight was enough to make us friends!

What is your most embarrassing moment ever?
I have so many, I no longer get embarrassed by them. Disasters are part of the territory.

What is your favourite thing to cook?
I fell out of the habit of cooking a while back because of all the travelling. I am a microwave-and-tin-can kind of a girl. Sorry.

Which celebrity would you like to disappear forever?
If I donít understand a celebrity, I donít take any notice of them, so the only people I really want to execute in this world are the terrorists!

Which celeb do you secretly fancy?
I wouldnít turn down Johnny Depp Ė heís hot!
