This isn't the first time the the 26-year-old London-based musician has faced racism. In an interview with Dazed magazine
, she opens up about being mixed race in a Catholic school, "People said horrible things about something I had no control of, which was tough. But that's okay. Life isn't supposed to be easy, is it? I never really saw anything wrong with how I looked, it was more that certain people pointed things out to you about yourself. Either your hair's different, or the color of your skin, or your features."
