British singer has paid tribute to late The Slits rocker Ari Up, crediting the punk star with shaping her musical tastes. Up, rocker John Lydon's step-daughter, died on Wednesday, October 20 after suffering a "serious illness". She was 48.

Foundations hitmaker Nash has spoken out about the sad news and revealed Up inspired her to carve out a career in music, as well as helping her develop strong opinions as a woman. She says, "Because of (her Cut) album, I developed my musical tastes, bought records and learnt about feminism and politics and how important the link between music and those issues are."

"I also felt confidence as a teenage girl, I felt liberated and empowered and that I could be smart, musical and creative and that maybe somehow I could make a difference in the world too."
