You've probably heard Nikki Williams' powerful dance-pop debut, "Glowing," - which is currently climbing the pop charts - on a radio station near you. Or maybe you're even familiar with the gritty, heartwrenching ballad she put out last year, "Kill, F***, Marry." Either way, if the 24-year-old singer-songwriter's killer mix of strong vocal chops, no-nonsense 'born to do this' attitude and proven songwriting success (she penned Demi Lovato's latest hit, "Heart Attack") are any indication of what's to come, then Nikki Williams is destined to become a household name.
"TMI" is certainly not part of her vocabulary. The South-African spitfire isn't shy about, well, anything, so when iHeartRadio put her in the hot seat, she was right at home. Get the dirty on Nikki in Real Questions below.
How often do you shower?
I shower twice a day. When I drink scotch, I have to. Morning and night... when I wake up in the morning it just helps me wake up in general, and before I go to bed it helps me relax.
How old were you when you had your first kiss?
Fourteen. The same time I started my period.
His name was Maxwell Fondalinda, and I had a crush on him for like a whole year. We went and we watched Signs - the most craziest alien movie - and we were making out throughout the whole movie, which was very romantic (not really), but he was so fine. I sat on his lap, I was like, 'I am sitting on your lap man. Right now.' And then he was like, 'Can we kiss against the wall? I want to feel how that feels.' I was so excited.
Who is the weirdest person you have a crush on?
Adrian Brody. I love him! I actually saw him in real life one time in LA... he is so hot in person. I almost died, I seriously thought I was having an orgasm or something. I was like, 'I want to just jump on you right now'... I should have just put ice in my mouth. Oh my god, I want to eat his face.
Do you steal from hotels?
Always. When I'm in the hallway at the W hotel and the lady is cleaning the room or whatever, I always steal the face wash. Their face wash rules! It's called Bliss. I love it. May as well. We pay enough for our room per night anyway.
Have you ever Facebook-stalked a fan?
Actually yes I have, I Facebook stalk all my hot fans. I have some cute boys... I can't like tell them they're cute, so I just look at their pictures and like them.
What's the last illegal thing that you did?
I do illegal things all the time, illegal sexual things. Whew, I mean... stuff that should be illegal. I could write a book on illegal things.
Were you part of the popular crowd in high school? Why or why not?
Nope. Everyone hated me, because I was already in my own world doing music, and everyone was like, 'Who's that weirdo?' I was wearing all black hoodies, drinking at school, smoking in the parking lot, listening to metal. I was like f*** you, I hate you, I don't give a s***, I'm cool, whatever. I would just go to school looking ugly as hell and still probably hung over from sneaking out the night before. I hung out with an older crowd, all metal fans, and we used to go to see metal bands and drink Southern Comfort out of the bottle. I will always be a metal girl at heart.
Have you ever been fired from a job?
No, never. I have never had a job... I've always done music.
Have you ever had a sex dream about anyone in your band?
No. Yes. No, I don't know. Have I? Oh, no, yes, okay, yes. Yes I have, I have, I have, oh GOD I have!
I woke up and realized that it wasn't real and I almost cried... Because it was so hot, and I wanted it to be real, I still do. I want it to be real so bad, but it's never going to happen. He doesn't even like me, he doesn't even know that I like him. I'll create the whole relationship in my head... and we broke up and everything, and this dude doesn't even know I liked him in the first place.
I'm like, 'I hate you, you cheated on me, blah blah blah,' in my mind. I'm such an idiot. I'm such an idiot.
My sex dream was about Fedde LeGrand, the DJ. It was such a hot dream... it was on stage while he was DJing, and then I was bending over the DJ equipment that you can't see - during the show while he was spinning. It felt so real, it was like the best sex I've ever had.
What's the last thing that really pissed you off?
Today I got in trouble because I wanted to stay in bed five more minutes, five f***ing minutes, just five! I was five minutes late to the lobby and I got in trouble for that, and I was like you know what, f*** you, it's early.
Who would be your dream one night stand?
Chris Hemsworth, but he's married which is so sad cause he so tall and blonde and... Actually also like Travis Fimmel. He's also married though, the guy that plays in 'Vikings.' He was also a Calvin Klein model... He's so f***ing gorgeous, I've been in love with him since I was 14. Oh my God I want to marry him, I want to eat his face.
What's your biggest regret?
Getting married, marriage is stupid especially when you're young. What was I thinking? You should take something like that seriously - it's not a joke - and obviously to me I thought it was fun, a good idea. Actually, on the day I was like, 'Oh my God what am I doing!?' But we got married on a yacht, so it's not like I could jump off.
I've decided I'm not getting married ever again. I want to have a whole harem of lovers for the rest of my life.
What do you wear to bed at night?
Nothing, I like to wear a man as an accessory.
