Natasha Bedingfield checked in with fans on her blog at MySpace (@natashabedingfield) on Monday (November 9), discussing her visit to Jamaica with husband Matt Robinson and continued progress on the follow-up to ‘Pocketful of Sunshine’. The pop singer tells readers:
Anyway, just wanted to touch base with everyone on here. I’m still writing for the next album. It should be out sometime early next year hopefully. I’ve been writing with Kleerup, John Hill, Wycleff, Salaam Remy, Ryan Tedder, Sia, Eg White, Wayne Wilkins, Phonogenic, Mike Elizondo, John Shanks, Danielle Brisebois and some others.
You all know, writing is my favorite part of the music process. I’m really savoring it and working on a sound that is fresh and brings everything up a few notches. I can’t wait for you to hear the new material. Meanwhile check out the music of some of my MySpace mates. I love them!
Miley Cyrus appeared on the ‘Today’ show on Friday (August 28), performing ‘Party in the USA’, ‘The Climb’, ‘See You Again’, and ‘Kicking and Screaming’. The ‘Hannah Montana’ star also spoke with co-host Matt Lauer about the amazing amount of fans who showed up, who she’d wait out in the rain to see, being influenced by Joan Jett and Janis Joplin, and perhaps making her record label cringe by saying the album was written as inspiration for the clothing line and is “not who I am, it’s not necessarily the kind of music I want to continue to do.”
Cyrus fielded some questions for a web extra segment from last week’s musical guest, Natasha Bedingfield, who asked her about where she gets her confidence from, where she sees herself in ten years and when Miley’s gonna call her. Watch the Rockefeller Plaza live set and interview below.
Natasha Bedingfield visited the ‘Today’ show on Friday (August 21) to perform ‘Pocketful of Sunshine’, a cover of Madonna’s hit ‘Ray of Light’ and ‘Unwritten’ live on the Rockefeller Plaza.

In a web extra, Natasha took questions from the prior week’s musical guest Flo Rida. Watch it all below.

Writing is going well. I’m very excited about getting the next record out when it’s finished. just in case you were wondering what I’m up to. I’ve been creating songs almost everyday the last few weeks.
Just was in studio last week with Wyclef. He is such a musical genius. Met with Sam Sparro this week. We are gonna make a cool collaboration. I have a good feeling about that one.
Right now I’m in the studio of Mike Elizondo. I wrote with him on my last record. We have about 4 songs we are writing at the same time. I like working with him so much. He is so versatile and plays almost every instrument excellently.

Natasha Bedingfield updated fans on her blog at MySpace (@natashabedingfield) on Thursday (April 2), discussing her marriage last month to Matt Robinson. The singer songwriter tells readers:
So, I went and got myself hitched! I’m on my honeymoon right now. Just wanted to tell all of you the news personally. I’m a Mrs. now! I’m so happy. I was single for a long time and I truly enjoyed it that but I have to say that I just couldn’t resist falling for Matt. My first ever radio hit ‘single’ says ‘I don’t need another half to make me whole’ and I still think that is true but I will add to that.. having an ‘other half’ definitely makes my life a ‘whole’ lot more fun. We are having such a magical time here on our honeymoon. Will be back soon in LA and London writing my next record. Also, I will post some more video blogs and pictures online soon.
If you want to know more about the wedding, go and buy the hello magazine( if you are in the UK); and if you are in the USA you will find pictures and more details in Us Weekly.

British singer Natasha Bedingfield has the music and fashion worlds covered. The 27-year-old talked to CNN’s Shanon Cook about her latest single ‘Soulmate’ being inspired by John Gray’s book ‘Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus’, not knowing what the follow-up to ‘Pocketful of Sunshine’ is gonna be about, always being into fashion, having an eclectic style, how the fashion and music worlds differ, and how it’s been good to be a British singer lately with the success of Adele and Duffy. Video of the interview at Turner.com has since been removed.
Natasha Bedingfield updated fans on her blog at MySpace (@natashabedingfield) on Friday (January 2) after taking part in ‘Dick Clark Rockin’ New Years Eve’. The pop singer tells readers:
I’m in New Zealand now. I’m here for a couple of weeks to do a bit of writing. It is such an inspiring place to write music. I love coming here as often as I can, usually once a year to fuel up on ideas for my next album.
All of my family is here. Although I was born and brought up in the UK (the reason I have a London accent), I have always felt a deep sense of belonging in New Zealand. This is the reason I have ended up calling myself a briwi – a British kiwi.
London was always my home and I love it so much but New Zealand is my country of origin and when I’m here if feels like I get in touch with a deeper part of myself. I like to stick my bare feet in the sand and let the ocean breeze mess up my hair. I love to go fishing with my grandad, to find out secret recipes from my two nana’s, discuss life and spirituality with my other grandad. Just to be still and breath in the spectacular nature moving and alive all around.
Natasha Bedingfield updated fans on her blog at MySpace (@natashabedingfield) on Saturday (December 13) with a lengthy post ahead of the holidays, thanking radio as she winds down the radio tour stops, and just about everyone else. The British pop singer tells readers:
I guess all the Xmas stuff around – the carols, the reminders to buy gifts, the Xmas movies – are starting to rub off their magic on me. It’s making me want to be grateful and thankful.
Everyone I know can’t wait for their work year to end so they can have a much deserved break. The economy is low and it sucks because most people deserve so much more especially when we have worked so hard all year.
I hope these holidays can be for you all a time of regrouping, and refreshing. A little gap from the craziness. A time to remember our blessings.
I feel the urge right now to be thankful.
– I am thankful for where I am today.
– For what the journey has taught me so far.
– To all my fans
– For my family and close friends.
– For the fact that history has been made during my life.
– The first black president is certainly something I feel proud to be witnessing..
– I want to thank and honor all the people in my team for being such steadfast support. My band, Das Management, Wilhelmina models, CAA, EMI, my co-writers, Epic Records, as well as every other department of my record company SonyBMG, particularly my radio peeps, you guys work so passionately.
– Thank u to the tv shows that plugged my record this year. NBC, Ellen, the Today show, American Idol, AMAs, Lipstick Jungle, Chelsea Lately, Craig Ferguson, Jay Leno, Regis and Kelly, MTV, VH1, The Batcherlorette, ABC, Degrassi, Nickelodeon, Lipstick Jungle (I’m on it tonight by the way), Fashion Rocks.
Clear Channel, Verizon, Live Nation, NFL,
Thanks to all those back in UK who are holding down the fort, keeping the coals burning while I’ve been away.
