Talking about recording some new material, she said: "He didn't come to the studio but I'd play him songs down the phone. It's scary and you think, 'Please like it!' We've formed more of a bond and we can be honest with each other."

In addition to Simon, Leona says she has lots of celebrity friends, like Beatles legend Sir Paul McCartney and his family. She said: "I have a relationship with the McCartneys. I respect their values and their opinions about vegetarianism because I'm a vegetarian. They're really cool people."

But despite her successes, the singer admits she still gets overwhelmed when she meets other stars. She added: "I was star-struck when I met Samuel L. Jackson and Daniel Day-Lewis at the Golden Globes. I was excited when I met Nelson Mandela, too. I performed at his birthday in 2008. I was really honored."
