Katy B quotes

I love being at home now, improving my cooking. I've got a really bad memory, so my first attempts were a disaster - I'd forget what ingredients to put in. But I do a lasagna that's a crowd-pleaser, and a good lemon drizzle cake, which I take to my mom's for the Sunday roast to fatten the family up.

I'm a big fan of Beyonce and Rihanna. I've listened to Beyonce all my life, and she's a big influence on me.

Things go in cycles. It's like fashion, like flares go out then skinny jeans come in, people want something fresh. It's the strongest ever urban scene at the moment and I hope it can progress and keep getting stronger and be the base for something larger.

When I was 13, listening to Choice FM, I would listen to a lot of R&B from America, and whenever a British person tried to do it, it didn't really work, they just sounded like they were trying to copy that whole style. Now the music sounds British, something real rather than an imitation.

I don't think I represent all things dubstep. I just like clubbing, so those are the sounds I've chosen to work with.

I don't want people to think they have to like me because I'm on TV every other minute.

I go to a club to relax and hear the music on a big sound system. I don't go to pull a guy.

I guess I've been making records since I was 16, and even when 50 people bought them, I thought that was amazing.

I had wanted to be a dancer when I was younger. But at some point I figured out I was a better singer.

I make music, and if people like it, they like it, and some people won't.

I think as long as you're being creative and finding your own work interesting, that's all that matters.

I used to play the piano when I was younger, and I loved Alicia Keys. I wanted to be Alicia Keys; she was such an idol to me.

I'd love to be the new Jools Holland, but you know, for, like, cooler people.

I've always known my own mind, and I'm not shy about speaking it.

Someone asked me the other day what my favourite record shop was, and I said YouTube.

Studying music, everyone sort of has their own style - it's not like everyone's going for the same part.

The days of an open mic night when I'd rock up in an old jumper are over.

The first time I went out under the spotlight, I was proper freaked out.

I love clubbing - the abandon of it, the release of dancing, and being with my friends and the people I love. For me, it's never been about going out to meet guys or to show off my latest dress - it's the music.

I went to my first drum n' bass rave when I was 16 and remember being terrified. Looking around, trying to figure out how to dance to this music, watching some girl in some hot pants, trying little ways to learn her movements.
