Rufus Wainwright has revealed that he hasn't dealt with his grief for his late mother yet.
The singer's mother passed away in January at the age of 63 after a battle with cancer.
However, Wainwright told The Sun that he has been too busy to grieve.
"Getting straight back into things after she died... well, I don't make it easy on myself, but someone's got to work around here," he said. "I've saved July to collapse."
He continued: "There's always some huge personal issue I'm not dealing with so I overcompensate with my artistic endeavours. This has been the worst of times but it's also been the best in a weird way because I had such a great relationship with my mother."
Wainwright recently revealed that he has reconciled with his father since his mother's death.
