Charli XCX had a video shoot shut down by police.
The 22-year-old singer had an "intense" experience when she ran foul of the law during the filming of her promo for 2013 track 'SuperLove' and was forced to halt the work.
She said: "I was shooting my video for 'SuperLove' and the police came and shut it down because we were riding with a biker gang through the city. That was pretty intense."
Charli admitted she is almost always honest, even when in trouble, but occasionally feigns illness to get out of plans she doesn't like.
She said: "I find it hard to lie to get out of trouble - my face says it all. But I've definitely pulled the 'I'm sick' card to get out of a meeting before."
The 'Boom Clap' hitmaker also confessed to having a "massive obsession" with buying new shoes.
She said: "I find myself in sticky situations when it comes to shoes. I have a massive obsession. I love them."
Charli doesn't like graffiti but she left her mark permanently during her school days.
She told TOTP magazine: "Scrawling graffiti is not really my thing but I definitely remember writing 'Charlie woz ere' on my school locker."
