Macy Gray raised concern among Lorraine viewers today after claiming she’s a vampire and that she wants to bite people.

During a peculiar and awkward interview with Lorraine Kelly, the singer also complained about having to get up so early to appear on the daytime TV show.

After being asked about her recent trip to hospital, which she shared on Instagram, Gray said: "I'm a vampire, I have a low blood count, every two or three years I have to get blood.”

She then expressed her desire to “run out and bite people,” but Kelly insisted that would be illegal.

Gray then complained about having to get up early for the interview, telling the presenter: "You should shoot it at night and then tell people it's live, that's an idea. Why do it in the morning?"

Kelly awkwardly attempted to get the interview back on track by asking Gray about her headline act WOMAD Festival, but the singer ended up asking for directions to her next interview.

"Where is Malmesbury, how long will it take to get there in the car?” she asked.

Viewers soon took to Twitter to criticise the interview and express their concerns for Gray.

One viewer tweeted: “I’m not sure this Lorraine Kelly interview with Macy Gray was such a great idea.”

While another wrote: “How can they let Macy Gray on TV in that state?”

Gray had previously been diagnosed with bipolar, but in 2007 she told The Daily Mail that she was cured and no longer had to take medication for the condition.

The singer has also struggled with drug and alcohol addiction in the past.
