Here's what the Bulletproof singer had to say:
On writing her debut album with partner Ben Langmaid during a traumatic relationship:
"When I was making it, there were literally a handful of times that I'd turn up to Ben's, slump down on the floor and just cry…When you really, really love someone and you just can't make them love you back…Everyone knows the feeling. Apart from death, it's one of the hardest things in life to deal with."
On her androgynous sense of style:
"I remember people saying, 'One day you'll wear high heels.' Well no, I fucking won't. It's such a cliché to say, but it's just who I am. It's never going to be a different way."
On having moved on from her former 80's-inspired 'look:
"When we made the record, I was basically dressed '80s. I wore loads of leggings — not like Flashdance, you understand — and loads of patterns that didn't work together. Like the outfit in the 'Bulletproof' video. I don't like that video now. I don't like those clothes now, either. I would never wear any of those clothes, ever."
On androgyny representing an alternative to the way other female pop stars promote themselves:
"It's really important for young girls because there isn't anything else. If you're not into that very exposed female look, what else is there? Apart from looking up to boys, which is what I did. I was always looking up to men, which is probably why I was all weird."
On using Gaga as a model for American success:
"When Lady Gaga's 'Just Dance' came out, I was totally unaware that performance art was going to be her vibe. Knowing what I know now, I think she always had this in mind but she didn't have the money to do it. You have to build up this country's trust and the industry's trust, and there's no way she would have been able to do anything weird straight away because everyone would have just told her to fuck off. I'm having that problem now. You have to build up people's trust, and then you can get away with whatever you want."
We think she has a great sense of style!
Besides she must be doing something right if designers Viktor & Rolf specifically chose her to open their men's runway show.
Do you, La Roux!

Sorry American fans, no La Roux for you!
The band has had to cancel their U.S. tour after singer Elly Jackson was ordered by her doctor to stop performing.
The group made an announcement on their Facebook, saying that "Elly has been struggling with bronchitis for the last few months and after her show in LA, contracted pharyngitis.
"Her doctor has advised her to rest for three weeks so unfortunately she’ll be unable to continue with her American tour. We are endeavouring to reschedule as many of the cancelled shows for November as possible. An announcement will be made shortly."
We hope Elly gets better and gets back to touring as soon as possible!

To kick off men's fashion week in Paris designers Viktor & Rolf had singing sensation La Roux as a surprise guest.
For the gig, the Bullet Proof singer wore a V&R men's tux and the duo's signature glasses.
Viktor Horsting explains why she was right for their show, saying:
"We love her style. We love her authenticity. We love the way she plays with gender. So it felt logical. She’s right for our men’s clothes."
And La Roux agreed, adding "I love suits. I wouldn’t feel comfortable in girls’ clothes."
