Jake Bugg writes songs naked.

The 19-year-old singer sleeps nude and if inspiration strikes during the night, he doesn't take the time to even get dressed before penning the track.

He said: "I play the guitar naked. First thing in the morning if I've got a tune in my head."

Jake - who briefly dated Cara Delevigne earlier this year - admits he knows little about fashion and found it hilarious when he was asked to take part in a photoshoot for a men's style magazine.

He said: "This guy was pulling all these clothes off this rail. One of them looked like something that'd been under the kitchen sink for two years. He said, 'This is a museum piece'. I was like, 'You wanna take it back there.' "

The 'Lightning Bolt' hitmaker also laughed off speculation about his drug use, insisting he wouldn't encourage anyone to use illegal substances as his previous experiences haven't gone well.

Speaking to Q magazine, he said: "Some people seem to have a perception I'm into hard drugs too. I suppose from the lyrics on the first album, especially 'Seen It All' and the reference to pills. But all I was saying in that was I did something once and it didn't end well, so, y'know, don't f***ing do it."
