Christine and the Queens' Chris says touring helped her cope with mother's death

Christine and the Queens' Chris admits touring helped her get over the death of her mother.

The singer - whose real name is Heloise Letissier - admits that performing became "cathartic" after her mother passed away in April.

Speaking to Q magazine, Chris said: "That tour was the most cathartic thing I ever did but also it was a good album to perform at that moment, I was like, 'Thank God, I wrote that kind of a record.' Songs like Doesn't Matter become purely cathartic.

"Also, the album has a bit about it. It's nice to perform 'Girlfriend' when you feel like s**t, because it makes you feel a bit better."

Chris, 31, previously suggested that she had an "urgent and great" need to perform after her mother's death.

She said: "Personally, for me, it was an intense year. I lost my mum. Then the stage became a safe place... even more intensely."

Meanwhile, Chris previously admitted that she was "afraid" of being seen as a role model.

She said: "I have always been wary of that title.

"Some artists were a hint for me. When I was really young, I saw 'Life On Mars' by David Bowie and realised that maybe there are ways to be in the world that are different. I like that idea way more than being a role model. I'm afraid of role models."

Chris also admitted that she is uncomfortable with being a celebrity.

She admitted: "I see people with their phones out, checking who's the next most famous person to hang out with. To me, it feels like high school all over again."
