We went to meet the glamorous Estelle this week as she arrived in London for a fly-in visit to promote her amazing new album 'All Of Me'.
Living predominantly in the US she flys home regularly to London, so I wanted to know where she felt most at home...but her answer was neither; in fact an aeroplane is where she feels most at home!
The night before the interview was the launch party of her new album which took place in London nightclub Aura, and Estelle was feeling a little fragile although we couldn't tell as she was bright and fresh-faced.
For me it was exciting to meet one of my favourite artists as her first album 'The 18th Day' was a masterpiece which proved her musical worth from the very beginning.
With a Grammy under her belt and support from music giants Kanye West and John Legend (to name a few), Estelle is more than grateful for where she is, and thinks staying grounded is one of the most important things to maintain when you are an artist.
After being away for four years since her last album, we have all been more than eager to hear what she has cooked up with the new album and she didn't disappoint.
Using life's experiences over the last few years like the break-up from her ex-boyfriend, she has poured emotion and passion into her latest music offering which I'm sure many people are grateful for and can relate to. Adding artists Chris Brown and the mighty Rick Ross to the mix has given the album that extra superstar dusting.
Overall, Estelle is not someone who can ever become irrelevant, despite knocks from her critics, her music and passion will always override the hurdles. More than anything I was glad to have met an artist that despite her fantastic acheivements, is still very human, grounded and in touch with who she is.
