Rachel On Good And Bad Descriptions
February 13, 2005 – Dan Cairns of The Times caught up with former S Club star Rachel Stevens as she preps the release of her new single ‘Negotiate with Love’. Asked how she’d hate to see herself described in five years’ time – after, she predicts, many more career “ups and downs” – and what she’d be happy to read, Stevens responded, “I would feel really uncomfortable to be described as Rachel Stevens, nice, sweet, occasionally released a good pop track. I would like to be described as an artist in my own right and I make great albums and I’m a great performer and people like coming to see me and like to play my music.”
