'I've never seen any of these women before before', says Hozier ahead of Victoria's Secret Show
Irish singer Hozier has admitted he doesn't recognise any of the Victoria's Secret Angels who will be surrounding him during his big performance next week.
The Bray native (24) will take to the stage at the annual Victoria's Secret Fashion Show in London on December 2nd, and will be watched by millions of people worldwide when it airs.
But he's clearly been focusing on music over models.
"I’m familiar with the lingerie brand and have seen shots of it. I know [the show] is a big fashion event to showcase Victoria’s Secret’s new line of sexy sexy things," he told Elle.com.
"To be honest, I’ve never seen any of these women before."
The rising star, who can count US domination among his 2014 highlights, will be performing alongside Taylor Swift, Ed Sheeran and Ariana Grande at the high profile event, which he notes as a stark contrast to his normal set-up.
"I certainly have never performed with women passing me by, nor in a setting of that capacity," he added. "Yes, okay I’m a little bit nervous. I’ve never performed like that. I’m usually stuck behind a mic stand with a guitar in my hand!"
His performance marks the first time an Irish singer has performed on stage at the annual event, which costs millions to produce, and just the second time an Irish person has set foot near the stage as former Irish supermodel Catriona Balfe walked for the brand in 2002.
This year will see Alessandra Ambrosio and Adriana Lima wear two $2m fantasy bras alongside Angels Candice Swanepoel, Lily Aldridge, Doutzen Kroes and more.
