”She’s international, she’s intergalactic and she’s into rimming. She’s a huge fan of novelty slippers and David Gray, but her favourite thing about humans is that they’re 85% water. All the way from Uranus to your anus, please welcome to the stage the icon, the legend, the fugitive that is NICCCCCHHEEEE LORRRAAAINEEE.”
