Singer Alison Mosshart has headed home to Detroit, Michigan for a "family Christmas" - but the busy The Kills frontwoman insists she'll still be working over the holiday season.
The rocker spends much of the year on the road with the band or in the recording studio and she's looking forward to spending Christmas with her relatives and learning to ski, but Mosshart admits she's not switching off from work completely.
She tells Australia's Vogue magazine, "I'm going home to Detroit. It'll be a family Christmas. Not quiet exactly, and I'll still be working, but nice to see everyone.
"I'm going to try skiing a few hours north of Detroit. I've done it once before and I don't remember what happened, but I didn't break my arm or anything so hopefully it'll be fine."
