You've collaborated with David Usher, Nelly Furtado, Bran Van 3000, Jacksoul. Who would you like to work with?
Jack White [of the White Stripes]. He's one of the most exciting all-around performers. Jeff Lynne from the Electric Light Orchestra. In the hip hop world, Kanye West, Timbaland. I like Mark Ronson's new album too.
What's on your iPod right now?
Mark Ronson. I'm about to listen to the Kanye West album. It comes highly recommended. I listen to a lot of old stuff, like Mina. She's an Italian Diva, like the Italian Streisand. You have to listen to her song "Brava". She was a piece of work. I admire strong, over-the-top women performers.

You were talking with Sue about your recent trip to Senegal. How did this change you?
I have a long love affair with Senegalese culture and spirituality. I get along really with the culture. I'm hyperactive, and they are really relaxed.
