Dido on 'Stan' video toilet scene: ‘That wasn't my finest moment’

Pop singer Dido, 41, told The Sun that she now cringes at her turn as an actress in the music video for "Stan," her 2000 collaboration with rapper Eminem.

Dido, who plays an Eminem fan's pregnant girlfriend in the video, said that her work in the opening scenes now makes her laugh, particularly a part where she's pictured singing on the toilet.

"That wasn't my finest moment," the "Thank You" singer said. "Every time I watch that video, the beginning bit properly makes me giggle."

"I remember sitting on the loo on the set with Eminem and Dr. Dre there and thinking: 'How surreal can life get?' she continued. "It's quite hard to sit on the loo without wanting to go to the loo. It wasn't my sexiest moment."

But bathroom scene or no, Dido is still glad she had a hand in "Stan."

"I loved making that video. It was so fun," she said.


And though she's no longer in touch with Eminem, the singer only had kind words for her former duet partner.

"I know a lot people have got a lot of things to say about him, but he was amazing to me. He was so respectful and interesting to be around," the singer said.


"You can't write lyrics like that and not be an exceptional human being. I think he's one of the great modern storytellers."

The songstress has an even more personal connection to the song now. She and husband Rohan Gavinn named their first child Stanley.

'At first I didn't make the connection between the names, but even when I did I wouldn't have changed the name because I had always wanted to name my son that," she said. "It's more of a coincidence that the song 'Stan' was called Stan. I don't see 'Stan' as the same as Stanley."

Favourite Dido song, ONTD? I LOVE the new album, very electronic and synthpop-y.
