I had a night in with Chinese food and the Amy Winehouse documentary, but I ended up drinking two bottles of champagne. It was quite a weird thing. I did that Global Citizen Festival and I did that duet with Beyonce and I was trying to learn - we were rehearsing and I was trying to learn the lyrics, and I was like, ‘What the hell are you saying in this bit?’ And she was like, 'Oh, I’m saying Armand de Brignac, gangsta wife.’ And I was like, 'What’s de Brignac?’ (I thought she said I’m on de Brignac.) And she kinda like laughs… and then I got back to my hotel room and there’s a case of this champagne. So I’m trying to get through it before I fly home because there’s so much of it! It’s really good. I don’t really like champagne, but I think it’s because I drink like, do you know what Cava is? Cava’s like $10 champagne from like Wal-Mart, and that’s what I’d drink in England if I was gonna do champagne. Well, it’s not even champagne, because for it to be champagne it has to be made in the Champagne district. So it’s just… sparkling wine. You need to get on that Armand de Brignac.
