The 52-year-old singer felt an instant connection to the track which became her first single from new album ‘Disco’ because she related to its theme about the “eternal quest for love”.
She said: "I cried when I heard it earlier this year.
"I remember listening to it and just being very teary and calling my producer going, 'This song is just...'
"It's saying more than we're saying. Like, there's a lot of room for interpretation in that song.
"It's about love and everyone having the capacity for love.
“It's not as easy to describe as, 'OK, everyone's on the dance floor, there's a full moon and we're all dancing.' “

I can't believe I did that!
We might think that celebrities constantly have it together, especially when they’re gracing our social media feeds with perfectly posed pictures. But just like us, they have their fair share of awkward childhood memories that still make them look back and cringe. Here are 10 celebrities who have shared their most embarrassing childhood stories because who doesn’t love to laugh at someone else’s mishaps.
Kylie Jenner has spent more than half her life filming ‘Keeping Up with the Kardashians’ and has had many of her embarrassing childhood moments caught on camera. However, in a video for Cosmopolitan, the makeup mogul and her sister Kendall shared a story from their early childhood. Kylie admitted that she had an embarrassing accident when she was five. Wanting to embarrass her further, Kendall chimed in: “She pooped all the way up the stairs, and it was all over the carpet … So she left a trail all the way to her room.”
Scott Evans recently played ‘Know Your Bro’ on ‘The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon’. He appeared with older brother Chris Evans, a game that involved revealing embarrassing childhood stories while one sibling wore noise-cancelling headphones. When asked about Scott’s most embarrassing childhood Story, the ‘Avengers’ actor launched into a story about his younger brother’s “bowel control issues” during a ski trip. Chris shared that the issue got so bad they ran out of clean clothes for the five-year-old to change into. He said: "We're down to the last line of defence. It's just the snow pants. And he starts crying saying, 'It's gonna happen, and me and my sister are like, 'Just hang on.' He didn't make it."
Channing Tatum may have become one of Hollywood’s most sought after leading men, but the actor had his fair share of lady troubles growing up. The ‘Magic Mike’ star shared with Elle that he was dumped in front of his classmates. He said: “The first girl I ever kissed was named Danica. She broke up with me through a friend who yelled out the bus window ‘Oh yeah, Danica doesn't want to go out with you anymore.’ The whole bus burst into laughter.”
Joey King took a tumble when she was little and cracked her chin open. It was such a traumatic experience for her because she was just in kindergarten and wanted to be well-liked. The 'The Kissing Booth’ star told Seventeen Magazine in 2018 that her classmates made fun of her for her stitches because the doctor didn’t cut them properly. Joey said: “Everyone made fun of me because they thought I had a small beard on my face … No one would believe me because they thought I had hair growing from the bottom of my chin. It was really embarrassing.”
One Direction's Liam Payne had a particularly shameful episode when he was at primary school. When Liam was seven, a girl he really liked tickled him and he wet himself. But just when he thought he ruined everything, the chart-topping singer got the chance to make up for the embarrassing memory. He previously told Top of the Pops: “I saw her the other day, because she came to our concert. It was one of my redeeming moments. You just came to my concert so now you can let me off wetting myself.”
Tia Mowry, one half of the stars of ‘Sister, Sister’ recently shared the most embarrassing story from her childhood on TODAY’s ‘Six-Minute Marathon’. The mother of two pulled out a tampon in front of a singing group called Shai. Tia’s brother was on the television series ‘Out All Night’, which the band were performing on and when she took her hand out of her coat pocket to greet them, the actress pulled out a tampon instead. She said: “I didn’t pick it up, I just stared at it. I was like ‘this is embarrassing’.”
Kelly Clarkson is known for her amazing pipes and the singer hardly ever messes up a performance. However, this was not always the case as she shared with Access that her most embarrassing childhood moment was during a church performance of ‘Noah’s Ark’. The ‘American Idol’ alumni had accidentally put her animal costume on backwards, so the tail was dangling in front of her instead. Kelly said: “Everyone was laughing, I was like ‘you’re all going to hell’, I didn’t know why they were laughing because I thought I was nailing it … it’s fine, it built character.”
Roman Kemp learned the hard way on Celebrity Gogglebox as to why you should never go on tv with your parents. Martin Kemp recently revealed an embarrassing incident from Roman’s childhood on the show, where the radio host was stung by a bee in a very unpleasant place when he was a baby. Martin reminisced about how he had never heard a baby scream so loudly: “It was tiny, I don’t even know how the bee could see it.” Going red in the face, Roman said: “Well at least the swelling made it bigger.”
And Kylie thinks its universal theme will have struck a chord for a lot of people.

In the accompanying video for the single, Kylie rides a cosmic horse but she revealed the creature was switched out at the last minute, a “happy mistake” she thinks turned out very well in the end.
She explained to heat magazine: "That was kind of - not a happy mistake - but it was meant to be a different horse.
“And then two days before we filmed the video, my director calls and says, 'There's a problem with the horse. It needs six people to move it and we don't have six people.'
"So, the day before the video, the horse was changed.
"But it was always meant to be that horse because he is resplendent in that video. I love him."
