Lady Leshurr has admitted her email spam filter sent a message from The Queen to junk, meaning she almost missed being awarded with a British Empire Medal.
The rapper and singer, 34, was awarded the British Empire Medal in The Queen's 2020 Birthday Honours, but nearly overlooked her invitation to accept it because it ended up in junk mail.
It recognised her contributions to music and charity for donating the proceeds of 'Quarantine Speech' to the NHS and she told The Guardian: "My letter from the Queen went to my junk mail.
"I brought out 'Quarantine Speech' during lockdown and gave the proceeds to the NHS. I think that’s why the Queen reached out: 'Hi, you can have a British Empire Medal if you want.' If I hadn’t checked my junk folder, maybe I’d never have known."
The rapper from Birmingham also spoke about her decision to reveal her pansexuality in 2018.
She explained: "I came out as pansexual because, for me, it’s all about connection. Girl or boy is not what attracts me. Love isn’t about gender, it’s about energy, spirit and vibe."
Lady Leshurr recently took part in reality shows The Celebrity Circle which she won posing as Big Narstie, and Dancing On Ice 2021 where she came fourth.
During her time in Dancing On Ice, she opened up about losing her sister to breast cancer, and has since said that taking part in the show saved her mental health during lockdown.
Earlier this year, she spoke about "restarting her life again" after mental health struggles, revealing how tough she had found being in the public eye.
She said: “I’ve been living a lockdown before lockdown. I just never used to go out the house. And if I did, I’ll get a taxi from there and back.”
“Recently, I’ll go out to places and just try and take back control of my mind again, I’ve been going out for the past couple of days on my own, trying to get over my social anxiety and just anxiety in general,” she added.
