Paloma Faith Proves She Is Not A Rebel

The English singer-songwriter can't understand why people think she is rebellious and proves to us she's not...

British singer Paloma Faith insists she doesn’t understand why she has a rebel reputation, as she’s never lived the rock and roll lifestyle.

The 27-year-old singer-songwriter has impressed the music world with her straight-talking nature but insists she has always been focused on her music.

The red-haired singer said; “You know, everyone calls me rebellious because of the way I look and talk, but I don’t think I am.

“I prefer to call it neo-rebellious, which is about being honest and not being afraid to be outspoken.

“It’s also not following some of the old paths associated with rebellion, like I’ve never been photographed falling out of clubs and I’ve never done drugs or anything like that. It’s not my way.

“And it’s wierd, but I’m even becoming less of an attention-seeker than I used to be!

“I think it’s probably because now I’m getting a lot of attention in my work, I don’t need to keep shouting from the rooftops to attract it all the time. I like to be quieter and keep myself to myself when I’m ‘off duty’.”

The singer and actress has already shown her charitable side to the world and was quick to use her influence of fame to raise money for different causes.

Paloma recently teamed up with Denise Van Outen and helped raised awareness of cervical cancer in the UK through Jo’s Cervical Cancer Trust. The singer donated a Vivienne Westwood clutch bag to a charity auction as part of the Lil-Lets We Are Women campaign. She also donated her favourite Mac Ruby Woo lipstick which she says symbolises one of her favourite things about being a woman, getting glammed up to spend a night out with friends.

Paloma says she wants to raise awareness of cervical cancer and abnormalities.

“The campaign gives women a platform to express themselves and raises awareness about the second most common cancer in women under 35. Hopefully it will encourage them to go for smears and be vigilant so that symtoms can be picked up early and treated.”

We don’t see anything rebellious about that! Go Paloma…
