Faith scares co-workers

Faith scares co-workers

Singer Paloma Faith is such a fierce taskmaster in the recording studio, she leaves co-workers "cowering in the corner".

The pop star admits she has told people off in the past, but only does it for the benefit of the album she's working on.

She tells BBC Online, "I'm very good at it. I'm the daughter of a teacher! Sometimes people cower in the corner when they see me in the office."

Asked if she has gained a bad reputation, she replies, "Not for being obnoxious, but for being honest. Sometimes people fear the truth. They'd rather not speak to you than know what you really think. But I have an inability to lie. I try and soften the blow a little... but I don't really mince my words."
