Is it true that your legs were insured for a million dollars? And are your toes included in the package?
Yes, Venus Breeze (female shaving brand) insured my legs for a million dollars. They named me this year’s ‘Celebrity Legs Of A Goddess’ and they insured my legs for that ridiculous amount. But my toes? Ha ha! I’m not too familiar with the specifics of the deal.

Your album’s called Good Girl Gone Bad. What’s your biggest vice? Biting your own toenails? Hoax-calling the emergency services?
I like playing pranks on people. I do that a lot. Every day is a new one. Actually, every hour. It’s almost second nature – I play pranks on people, trick them, tell lies… and push them in the waterfall. It’s a way of adding fun to my job and my life.

So what do you do when you’re not working? Most 19-year-olds near our office just seem to lurk around throwing McFlurries at passers-by.
I like simple things like driving around, doing nothing, listening to music. I love going to movies and like bowling, too. I’ve never been on vacation, but I’m actually going to Cancun in a few weeks. I’m looking forward to it.

If we were to take you out on the lash in London, what can we buy you when it’s our round? (Although, by rights, you should be paying for all of them)
I like a margarita with salt. Yeah, I like cocktails — coming from Barbados it’s all about cocktails. But that’s only in Europe. Ha ha!

What kind of man do you think would be good for you? Presumably not ‘vaguely menacing hip-hop knuckleheads dressed like giant toddlers’.
I like guys who have a sense of humour and great personality. Guys who are ambitious. Someone I can just have fun with, and be comfortable around. Just be silly at times, but also have a great time.

Do men find you intimidating?
I would hate to believe that; that’s not always the best thing.

So, is it all marketing balls, or are you really a bad girl now?
Let’s say I want to do things my way. I can be stubborn.
