ItsNotYouItsMe Album Spin - Paloma Faith

A Perfect Contradiction is the third studio album (currently import only) by eccentric English recording artist Paloma Faith. Faith turned to R&B royalty, choosing to work with comeback kid Pharrell Williams and also with Tony! Toni! Toné! front man Raphael Saadiq.

A Perfect Contradiction is a more life-affirming and brassy collection. The tone is set by the opening track, and first single, "Can't Rely on You", produced by Pharrell Williams. The collaboration happened because Williams sought out Faith at the 2013 Met Ball in New York, took her phone and keyed in his number. The fact that the "coolest man on earth" wanted to work with her seems to have given Faith a self-assured sass that runs through A Perfect Contradiction.

Faith says, "People always ask me: 'You seem so upbeat – why are your songs so miserable?' And I thought: 'You know what? They've got a point!' This time I wanted to show another side. When you first write these sad songs they are therapy because you've got something off your chest. But a year and a half later you're still picking a scab." via-

What is giving you the most joy right now?

SHAKIRA: I suppose it’s knowing that I can share with Milan everything I’ve learned and seen. I don’t have to keep all of that information to myself. I love teaching him something new every day.

We’ve got to ask you—do you think you and Gerard will ever marry?

We already have what’s essential, you know? We have a union, a love for each other, and a baby. I think that those aspects of our relationship are already established, and marriage is not going to change them. But if I’m ever going to get married, he’s the one.

You’re known—and adored!—in every corner of the world. If you had to guess, why do you think that is?

I feel like I have roots in many places. I’m Colombian by birth, half Lebanese on my father’s side, and I have Catalan and Italian roots on my mother’s side. I feel a strong connection to Europe, the Middle East, and Latin America, and well…with those three, you’ve already got a big part of the world covered!

Famously quoted in Disney's Alice in Wonderland, this photo opt really proves that, " Impassable! Nothing's truly impossible. Reports say that both divas spent time with eachother and almost collaborated on the Hole tune “Samantha,” over a few years ago. Love states,
“I’m at [director Bret Ratner's] house and I sing the part, ‘People like you fuck people like me,’ ” Love told Spinner at the time, as quoted by Rolling Stone. “And this little voice goes, ‘I’ll sing it.’ I’m like, ‘Who’s that?’ The voice goes, ‘It’s Mariah.’ “It was hysterical. I never met Mariah for more than a minute in my life, but we sort of canceled each other out. We had nothing negative about each other to say. I’m not in her universe and she’s not in mine.”
