Your Pop Alternative Source



So this time last year, I had been named as the Brit's Critics choice award winner. I guess the Brits are the closest thing to the Grammys? Definitely a British version. At that point I had released a video for Under the Sheets (here it is), on a small release with Neon Gold Records, I had done some small little shows, mainly acoustic, and a few photo shoots here and there. So I was shocked to have been given something so big. I remember doing a strange shoot for Vogue with a few of my friends, including Marina and the Diamonds, and everything I wore just looked bad, and I suddenly felt a horrible, dark feeling come over me in my gut as though something was telling me I wasn't supposed to be there and I felt terribly insecure. That's why when I heard the news of winning I collapsed in a heap on the floor crying because I knew my life was about to change, and I had worked so hard. It epitomised at the time how I felt about fashion and music. Fashion was a by product of what I was about to become but my voice and my songs alone had become recognised, and inside I was beaming. Of course now I adore fashion, but it was only after I concentrated on being a musician first and strengthening myself as a performer. Felt like it has been a year of progress.. nothing is ever complete or accomplished.


       Got nominated for two Brits, which is awesome... I think the artists in the category for Breakthrough would be in my dream show (XX,tinie, Mumford and Sons) So am happy to be in a category with these artists.  Also got Best Female! I am a female after all! In fact, would love it if you could vote for me here in the Best Breakthrough!


Very happy for Jessie for winning this years Critics Choice. About time for her to have her year. Her voice continues to astound me, and not only that, she is a strong, intelligent and hilarous person.. I had the pleasure of a TV night in with the girl recently. She is a perfect ambassador for British talent. Hope she has the year she deserves.


I have had the bloody showbiz life this week, spending time at Film studios. Pinewood to Shepperton. Rumours going around I'm the next Bond Girl. I wish! Can you imagine? I would love to do a TV one liner role though- but only if Julia Davies is in it. One of Britain's best comedy actresses. America, find "Nighty Night" on Amazon or something, pure genius!


Pinewood was to record a song for a film, which premieres soon at Sundance Festival. The film is called "Life in a Day" and it blew me away. Made up of footage from Youtube. One of the most emotionally loaded things I have seen- its a rollercoaster. You walk out wondering if you've ever really lived. So I am so, so proud to be part of it. Here is a link to the trailer and a picture of me in the booth:



Lastly, I recorded Your Song for "Dancing on Ice" at Shepperton. I got to swing on the worlds biggest swing, wear a Paris imported Grecian Dress, and hang out with Torvill and Dean, skating legends. Oh, and the whole audience saw my a**. The dress was lacking material at the back... No one seemed to mind though!

I can't believe how down to earth you are regardless of your amazing talent. It's so nice because I can relate to your feelings of insecurity - I can't imagine how it must feel to be insecure and in the eye of the public at the same time but you're amazing and you deserve every bit of happiness and success you gain.


P.s. You have great taste, I absolutely love 'Nighty Night', Julia Davies is fantastic. As is Glen :) x
