The star has opened up in the past about why she decided to conceal her identity, admitting she felt uncomfortable with the spotlight that came with fame.
“I was a singer for 10 or 11 years to mediocre success,” she told James Cordern during an episode of Carpool Karaoke.
“I was an alcoholic and a drug addict. I sobered up, and I decided I didn’t want to be an artist anymore, because I was starting to get a little bit famous and it was destabilising in some way.”
“I thought, What doesn’t exist in pop music at the moment?’ And it was mystery. I was like, there’s pictures on Instagram of everyone at the dentist.”
