Nelly Furtado on stealing candy as a teenager: "I was a bad-a**"
'Big Hoops (Bigger The Better)' sensation Nelly Furtado has revealed that she had a naughty streak inside of her growing up and used to pocket sweets from her local corner shop.
In an interview with British magazine S, the songstress explained that while she never did anything terrible she did steal candy and liked to think she was a bit of a rebel:
"My song Parking Lot really reminds me of being 14 years old and hanging out around the 7 Eleven (general store) with my friends until 4am, stealing sweets. I thought I was a bad-a** back then."
She also recently admitted that her youth was spent using a coat-hanger to pick up the edgier radio stations, which in turn gave birth to her love of hip hop and inspired her new album's lead single:
"I remember attaching a wire clothing hanger to the antenna of my radio in my bedroom, so I could get the frequency and get that station and listen to the top 10 every night. It was very liberating, finding that confidence through the music."
