On her hit record, the upstart Swedish singer says she uses drugs to ease the pain. But in reality, she’s hooked on coffee, sleep and love.
Tove Lo is breaking out with her hazy pop jam "Habits (Stay High)" -- which moves 16-13 on the Oct. 4 Billboard Hot 100 -- from debut album Queen of the Clouds, due Sept. 30 on Island Records. Despite the song's lyrics, staying high isn't really a habit for the 26-year-old Stockholm resident, born Tove Nilsson. But she does have some other quirks she just can't shake.
1. The first line of "Habits" is "I eat my dinner in my bathtub." Tove Lo sleeps there too.
"I always take a bath when I come home drunk, and I sometimes fall asleep, which is bad. But I always wake up when the water hits my face. So far, I haven't drowned."
