Had loadsaa fun going back to my old school on Monday, Hawes Down it was really weird going back to the place where it all began! I got my little brother up to sing and he ended up getting picked by the audience as the winner so that was really lovely :)
Then after I went to Hawes Down I visited Kelvin Grove Primary school and it was just fantttasstic! The teachers and Kids were so welcoming and I got to go round to all the classrooms and meet everyone and tell them about competitions and my shows and hopefully they are going to try and come along to see me play!!!!

Alex Roots checked in with fans on her official web site on Friday (July 3), talking about not enjoying the heat wave in England at the moment, attending Gossip singer Beth Ditto’s party, and working in the studio with Ryan Laubscher. Roots writes:
So this week I have been in the studio with Lauby we have been having a bit of fun experimenting with new sounds and just writing songs, not for me as such but to see if any other artists like them and also to have fun with it, it’s been really nice just chilling and not having the pressure of OKAY this song has to be the best it can possibly be. And because we have been more chilled and just relaxing we have managed to write four really cool songs, so yeah it’s been a nice way to spend the day :)

Hey Guys, I had a brilliant weekend :) I was supporting the Sugababes in Canterbury and Cannock Chase! Canterbury was great, I got to meet DJ Ironik (will show you photo below) and just spend a lovely day in the sun! It was baking though, the humidity and the lights on stage, oh well sweat out those calories ay! Speaking of calories, finally pulled my finger out and rocked it up to the gym today. Wasn’t unfit which i was happy about, but oh my godddddd the heat, overbearing!

Thanks so much to the people that came to my gig last night at The Fly in London! We don’t let no tube strike ruin our night ayyy.
Cool gig, had fun. Met some lovely In4merz, and also someone called Alex who was lovely and told me she was my biggest fan! It felt so weird having someone get nervous to talk to me because i am just a normal 16 year old girl so thank you very much!
The night before my gig i went to see Beyonce, OH MY GOD, she left me speechless, she is literally the most talented female performer in the world, i even think she has taken over Madonna! And that is a statement! When she sings, i wanna cry, when she dances she is always the best out of all of her dancers!! And she can act too, SUPERSTAR!!!
