The singer admitted that she has been keen to stick to her normal routine since finding fame, and has befriended many of her long-time fans.
"I still walk down the street and do my thing, run around, get everything, I'll run my errands and stuff like that," she told The Sun.
"In California and London I'm getting recognised more and more. It's usually really friendly exchanges - someone will just say, 'Is it you?' And I usually just say, 'Yes'.
"Then we just end up talking and being friends. I've ended up being friends with lots of fans I've met. I've had dinners and stuff like that in New York."
The star also insisted that she likes to webcam with her followers because "they've been the only thing that was consistent".
She added: "Everything else has gone so up and down, there are people that have been there for years, so we just check in with each other. It's really funny. I've been talking to two girls in Germany for years."
