‘I came to a point where I felt I wasn’t good enough, I’m not good enough to play a festival, I’m a busker,’ she told News Corp in May.
‘Then I started to realise I am good enough because who the f**k would deal with that? So at the end of last year I decided I wasn’t going to let anything bother me,’ she insisted.
