But the British singer admits she wasn't a fan of the area's scary populace. "I've been there (Brazil) a few times on tour but only to like Rio and Sao Paulo," the Daily Star quoted her as telling Sky news. “It was really nice to go up to the rainforest - even though there was a tarantula in my bed one evening, which was slightly terrifying. I just screamed and ran out of the room."
