Best Comfort Food
Bangers and mash, which is a stereotypical English dish. It's basically real sausages—not boiled pink hot dogs—with mashed potatoes and onion gravy. Whenever I go home, my mom makes it for me. If she thinks I haven't been eating, she'll put 15 sausages in the dish instead of the three it calls for.

Best Wedding Song
"Brown Eyed Girl" by Van Morrison. If the bride doesn't have brown eyes, a lot of the guests probably will—so whenever I sing it, the dance floor goes off.

Best Guilty Pleasure
Buffy the Vampire Slayer. When I was younger, cable was expensive, so everyone watched the same four channels. Channel 2 was the best—The Simpsons, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air and Buffy. I bought the entire series on DVD a few years ago. Any O readers who want to watch Buffy with me, let's go!

Best Adventure
Going to Iceland immediately after I won two Grammys last year. The first thing I did was jump into the Blue Lagoon. I spent the next three days doing things like hiking and being pulled on a sled by huskies. It was mad.

Best Summer Afternoon
Cycling with my girlfriend to her parents' house. On our way, we'll stop off at a country pub for a pint of ale and, of course, bangers and mash.

Best Advice
Always be nice. My mom taught me that.
