Paloma Faith was acting rather strangely on The X Factor.
The singer performed live on The X Factor. and during a pre-performance interview she ignored host Dermot O’Leary’s question, and said what she fancied instead.
Paloma blurted out a statement about going on tour which had nothing to do with the question host Dermot had asked.
After introducing Paloma to the audience, Dermot asked: ‘What are you singing tonight?’
Paloma said: ‘I’m gonna sing a song called Guilty, which… I’m going on tour as well with my album in March.’
Following the out of place promotion for her upcoming tour, Dermot kept Paloma in check and said: ‘That was literally not the answer to my question!’
‘That’s what I’ve been told a million times [to plug the upcoming tour], just ignore what he asks you,’ Paloma hit back, jokingly.
Luckily, both of the duo are light-hearted and managed to laugh through the awkward exchange – plus, Dermot knows the score with guests using The X Factor to plug upcoming projects, so is no stranger to wild outbursts about them.
Paloma is currently on the promotional circuit to plug her new LP The Architect, her first in three years.
The album, says Paloma, aims to create an ‘epidemic of kindness’ to revert the ‘epidemic of conflict’ the singer notes is coating society.

Paloma’s new single Crybaby is a jaunty, upbeat return to the pop sphere.
