Paloma Faith has revealed she struggled with her reading skills until she was 12, because she was more of a creative child.
Paloma Faith couldn't read properly until she was 12.
The 'Stone Cold Sober' singer struggled to master the written word until she was in secondary school and had to do extra work with her mother to help her learn the life skill.
She said: "I wasn't really comfortable reading until I was 12. But my mum was so encouraging of my creativity. I used to present her with random pages of letters in a line - well executed and with rainbow borders, but which didn't mean anything - and she'd go, 'Oh, wonderful, read it to me,' and I would read out this story that was in my head."
However, these extra lessons quickly paid off and by the time Paloma had completed her school studies, she was achieving such high grades her local London newspaper wrote a feature on her.
She explained: "I was featured in the Hackney Gazette as a high achiever!"
