There had to have been at least one moment in 2012 when someone who loved you suggested that you listen to Jessie Ware. The UK soul-pop starlet spent the greater half of the past year riding high off her buzz single “Wildest Moments” off her debut album Devotion. The U.S. won’t see Devotion until April, but Jessie’s done kick ass things already like worked with SBTRKT, performed with the Roots on Fallon, and was nominated for two 2013 BRIT Awards. A few weeks ago she dropped a short EP titledYou’re Never Gonna Move serving as a precursor to her follow-up album, which will arrive as soon as she can stop people from wanting to hear her sing live. The touring life is tough, but what’s tougher for Ware is ducking fast food in the fat capital known as America. As she cruises the Cali coast, Jessie Ware talks to us about her Barbra Streisand fascination, melatonin, old dudes at her hotel, and her top five ten dead or alive.
VICE: Are you in L.A. at the moment?
Jessie Ware: No, we’re kind of somewhere between L.A. and San Francisco. I’m trying to pull myself away from McDonald’s. Oh no, I’ve just seen In-N-Out Burger…fuck! I’m getting back in the van. But yeah, just trying not to eat In-N-Out burgers every day.
 
Did you get it Animal Style?
Oh yeah, I’ve had it Animal Style many a time. I just need to just avoid it at all costs. It’s too good.
 
You’ve got to eat it with a fork…
Oh you know what? I once didn’t eat it with a fork though. And I ate it in the back of a van…I had to eat with my fingers. Don’t ever eat Animal Style with your fingers! The smell…
 
Oh my God, yes! We don’t have In-N-Out in New York though.
You know what, I think that’s probably the best thing because if I lived in L.A., I’d just… [pauses] However… [pauses] Oh God, I’m being that boring person that talks about food. And Whole Foods.
 
Oh I love Whole Foods too! So please, continue.
I’d give my soul to Whole Foods.
 
No, I bleed for Whole Foods, Jessie. I feel you.
Oh man, I just dropped a fucking cash bomb in there. I just stocked up on melatonin for my flight to Australia tomorrow. Is it good, melatonin?
