For the past decade Britain has been looking for its own Britney Spears, but every candidate has been flawed: Joss Stone (too long in America), Leona Lewis (too much of The X-Factor), Lily Allen (too many nipples) and Amy Winehouse (too much of everything).
But now a potential solution has arrived, in the form of smoky-eyed temptress Pixie Lott from Brentwood in Essex. The figures speak for themselves. Debut single Mama Do sold 200,000 copies, having entered the charts at number one. Billie Piper is the only other solo UK female artist to debut there without first having been moulded on reality TV.
Don’t think it was beginner’s luck either, her next single Boys and Girls went to the top spot as well, so she’s obviously got plenty more talent on top of what meets the eye.
So much in fact, that her debut album Turn It Up has been certified double platinum. DOUBLE. That’s like, twice the amount of platinum. It still hasn’t been released over in America yet either, so it’s only going to get a whole lot more platinum. [It is currently available on Amazon.com; however, most of her singles are imports only]
Pixie seems to have set her sights on being the new Katy Perry even before Katy Perry becomes the old Katy Perry. She’s already starred in her own film Fred: The Movie, been a guest judge on X Factor and got her own clothing collection with Lipsy. All of that came before her twentieth birthday. Yeah, she’s intent on taking over the world too, she’s just a PVC dress or nine short. [FHM - Pixie Lott Whole Lotta Love]
