Imelda May: 'I'm still a rocker even though I'm a mum now'


Irish singer Imelda May has revealed her personality hasn’t changed, even though she is a mother now.

The Dubliner, who gave birth to daughter Violet in 2012, said she is still a rocker at heart.

“I just really wanted to rock out on this album (Tribal). When you have a baby your priorities change, but your personality doesn’t.

“Of course Violet has changed my whole world, but I wasn’t going to turn into a big lump of mush just because I had a baby,” she said.

“I’m definitely not getting more conservative the older I get – I’m going the opposite way.

“I want to be like a lunatic 90-year-old! And I suppose musicians tend not to grow old anyway,” she told VIP magazine.

Meanwhile the Dublin singer revealed she is glad her guitarist husband is supportive of her career.

Asked if Darrel Higham is happy to see her centre stage, she said:

“Yeah he is, and not a lot of guys could cope with that.

!When we were together first, he was more successful than me, and I was very happy to support him.

“Musicians are mostly always broke so you’ve got to make hay when the sun shines,” she said.
