Pixie Lott Quotes

1. I've always loved '60s fashion; it's so sexy.  

2. I'm not going to do anything that will damage my voice because my voice is my career and singing is my passion. I was singing in the cot and I'll still be singing when they're nailing down my coffin.

3. (on Prince Harry) I don't really have a type and I'm not usually drawn to ginger-haired men but I've always liked the idea of being a princess. I'd have to get to know him before accepting a marriage proposal but I wouldn't rule it out. He'd have to make the first move, though - if he walked into this room now, I'd be too embarrassed to say hello.

4. I just like boys who are good-looking, really! I like people who are tall with a good sense of style. My faves are the indie look, the smart look or the surfer look.

5. I've actually been compared to every female singer going from Britney, Christina, Mariah, Duffy, Amy Winehouse, everyone. And they are so different, so I think it's cool that people see me as so many different artistes but I think I'm a little different, yeah.

6. I'm a really bad liar. My mom finds out every time, especially now that she's got Facebook.

7. The worst thing about me is my toes. I've thick joints from wearing pointe ballet shoes - I went to a dance school from the age of 11 and danced every day.

8. My two style icons are Edie Sedgwick and Brigitte Bardot.

9. I can't imagine ever not making music, making albums, writing songs, doing shows. That's all I really know, and that's all I really do.

10. I'm not afraid to use my personal experiences and put them into a song. I think that's when you get the best stuff anyway, when it's real emotion.

11. The paparazzi stuff is a little weird. I used to leave the house in my pajamas. I can't do that anymore, but I'm not complaining!

12. What's good is that my music is different from everyone else's. It's got the soul element, like Duffy, but it's not very retro. It's a contemporary, pop, fresh sound. That's what makes it different.

13. We all like music in my family, but I'm the only one who's made it my life.

14. When I was growing up, I read Britney Spears' and Mariah Carey's biographies. I just wanted to see how they did it because I was so eager to get into the biz.

15. I don't really follow any fashions. I just wear what I want to wear each day. I don't care if they clash or not.

16. When I was born, I was born very prematurely so I was very tiny and small. And so, my mom just nicknamed me Pixie, like a little fairy.

17. Every time I get up and sing for people, I get such a high. I just want to do it again and again.

20. We don't have proper stars any more and things like twitter are partly to blame.

21. When I was younger I was really shy, but I'd always be singing, driving my family crazy. Apparently I was even singing when I was in the cot. That probably didn't sound too good!

22. My favorite designer is Mulberry - their bags are lovely, but their clothes are amazing, I don't think people realize. I love D&G, Fendi, Moschino, Chanel, Armani - all the classics!

23. Italia Conti is more about musical theatre and it's not really the pop side of things, and that's why I had to go out by myself.

25. Four years ago, I went for an audition in The Stage newspaper that was looking for the "next pop diva".

26. As a kid, I'd watch MTV and think how great it would be to have my own music videos on those shows. Now I turn on MTV and, along the bottom of the screen, it often reads, "Coming next…Pixie Lott." That's so strange that I can't even begin to make sense of it.

27. I don't try to pretend to be what I'm not. I don't feel I need to do anything outrageous.

28. You won't see a picture of me rolling around in a gutter, but I sometimes have a photo taken when I'm leaving a club looking tired, and there'll be headlines saying: "She's out of control". You can't prepare yourself for those things; you just have to shrug them off.

29. I don't believe in open relationships. If you want to be with someone else, you shouldn't be in a relationship in the first place.

34. Hmm…my bedroom's really messy. It's probably the messiest bedroom you could ever think of. Like, you think it's messy, but when you go there, you can't see one bit of floor anywhere. Clothes, makeup…I'm getting sent loads of clothes and stuff, so it's just piling up everywhere. I've to jump over it in order to get into my bed.

35. I like the big smoky eyes look, and I always do my eyes first when I'm putting on my make-up.

45. I love dressing for the winter - especially in baggy chunky cardigans.

46. I knew I wanted to be a singer from the age of five. I've been lucky to be so single-minded - some of my friends still don't know what they want to do, and they're finding it hard. There are home videos of me singing and taking centre stage at family parties when I'm about three.

47. When I'm unhappy or have had an argument, I'll go straight to the piano and write a song almost while I'm crying.
