95.8 Capital FM’s Roberto caught up with Pixie Lott backstage at the Summertime Ball in London at Wembley Stadium to chat about performing before 70,000 fans, loving America, being excited to see how the U.S. fans react to the album when it gets released, working with Jason Derulo, and getting to eat a sweet if she answered three questions. Watch it via the station’s YouTube channel below.
Amesbury Preparatory School in Surrey are out with a cover of Pixie Lott’s song ‘Boys and Girls’. 200 kids from the school performed the song which is available at iTunes. “Wow, a few people have been telling me about the video by Amesbury School so I just checked it out,” Pixie said. “I’m so moved by this – those kids are so talented and it’s for such a good cause. Definitely a cause I’d like to get involved with in the future! Everyone should download this version of ‘Boys and Girls’ and help raise money for this charity.”
That charity is Cardiac Risk in the Young, which the students chose because a former pupil passed away from an undetected heart condition. Watch the school’s video for the song via YouTube below.
Pixie Lott did a Q&A on her MySpace (@pixiesongs), where the British pop singer was asked about filming her ‘Turn It Up’ music video in Los Angeles, her Lipsy clothing range, how the Iceland volcano impacted her, and what she’s been up to besides tour rehearsals. On the latter topic, Pixie said:
It’s been non stop promo – pretty much every day but I can’t complain because I love this! I have been in LA and NYC for the past few weeks, recording and also setting up my album in the States. I’ve done a few sessions with some amazing artists, Jason Derulo especially is so talented! I also have a film coming out in September, called Fred. I’ve also recently launched my first clothing range with Lipsy.
Pixie Lott filmed her music video for ‘Turn It Up’ in downtown Los Angeles on Friday (April 16). The British pop singer told her Twitter followers (@pixiesongs) after the shoot:

Pixie Lott is doing a competition for fans, asking them to Tweet to vote for her at brits.co.uk and the winner will be thanked by Lott if she happens to get the Best British Single award for ‘Mama Do’.
Video of Pixie discussing the details of the contest at her YouTube channel has since been removed.

Pixie Lott checked in with fans on her blog at MySpace (@pixiesongs) on Wednesday (December 23), talking about and showing pictures of what she’s been up to since she last blogged and thanking fans for their support. The 18-year-old writes:
Before I go though I want to say a MASSIVE thank you to everyone out there who has supported me over the year. It’s has really been a dream come true and I’m so grateful for everything you’ve all done to help me along the way.
Next year there’s lots to come too with a tour, the film and lots more, so stay tuned here!

Pixie Lott is out with the music video to her new single ‘Cry Me Out’, the third release from the British pop singer’s debut album ‘Turn It Up’, out now on Mercury Records. Watch the Jake Nava directed video at YouTube.
At Karl Lagerfeld’s pop-up club Fendi O on Tuesday (October 6) in Paris, Pixie Lott spoke with ITN about plans to bring her debut album ‘Turn It Up’ to America. “Obviously it’s a different audience, and they listen to a different kind of music. So when I made the album I wanted to make sure that it had a sound that would work hopefully both areas, in the UK and in America, so I worked with a lot of UK writers and I worked with a lot of American writers. I didn’t want it to sound too American or too British, so hopefully it will work. But you never know.”
ITN has since removed the video.
