Norah Jones has done countless interviews with relative ease, but her scheduled chat with Jon Stewart of Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show” has the songbird feeling a bit apprehensive.
“I’m afraid I’m going to say something stupid,” the Grammy-winning singer told The Associated Press in a recent interview.
Jones is scheduled to appear Wednesday. She’s on a promotional tour for her new album, “Feels Like Home.”
“I know what’s going on, but I’m not like current event savvy. I’m not perfect, I don’t know everything. I’m a bit nervous about that,” the singer said.
Jones won’t be performing, but she’ll chat with Stewart, of whom she raves: “He’s so smart.”
“I hope he doesn’t say something and I’m like, ‘I don’t know,”’ she said, laughing.
Her mother is a big fan of “The Daily Show,” Jones said. The singer doesn’t watch television that often, she said, and doesn’t even have cable. Instead, she prefers to read.
“I’ve always loved to read, but sometimes I go for a year without reading a book because I forget to, or I don’t have a book that I can get into easily,” she said. “Recently I’ve been reading a lot more.”
