Pixie Lott always wanted to be famous. The 19-year-old singer – who has entered the Guinness World Records for the highest chart jump in history with her single ‘Boys and Girls’ going from number 73 directly to number one in the UK –wanted to be just like her idols Christina Aguilera and Britney Spears when she was four years old. She said: “I’d see them starting their careers so young and I’d say ‘Why can’t I do that?’” Pixie was so determined to become a famous singer that after signing up to stage school she spent all her time working out ways to succeed.
She said: “I got there by striving every night, every weekend, scouring the internet for auditions, signing up for things, looking through the papers. Everything, all the time. “I didn’t see the point of going to a stage school unless you wanted that career. Some people at my school are just doing normal jobs now. Which is, I think, a waste.” However despite her fame, Pixie admitted she is delighted that she can still travel unnoticed on the British underground. She said: “I’ll often sit there and everyone’s reading the paper and my picture’s right there in front of them and they still don’t recognise me.”
