Hello! I’ve got a new single with Ashley Walters called ‘Your Love’ and it is coming out on 14 October. We shot the video last week and it felt amazing to be back on set. It’s really given me the thirst to get back on stage and get back in the swing of what got me where I am today.
If it’s not too much of an inconvenience, we’d quite like you to put out another album, please.
Will there be a new album? I’m trying, I’m working on it. I really do miss being on stage – that’s what I love, that’s what I do.
So you’re definitely planning more solo stuff? That’s exciting!
For me, no matter what I do, at the heart of it, music and touring is what I love and what I want to do. That is where I feel at home, that is where I am happiest and I am trying my hardest to make another album happen.
Will you be returning to the BGT panel in 2013?
I am going to be back on Britain’s Got Talent… they’ve asked me back and I have said I would like to come back… I haven’t signed a contract yet but YES, I will be back!
I’ve heard that Pudsey is flying around the world in private jets – it is unbelievable! Such a lucky dog but he is entertaining! He has a good life. I haven’t seen them yet but I have heard they are doing so well and are on all the biggest talk shows in America which is a huge deal.
You must be the biggest multi-tasker on Planet Pop. TV, music, fashion, charity work and now perfume… but you haven’t yet conquered the literary world. Why is that?
I haven’t felt the time is right to do a book yet, there are a few that have been done about me but they have been unauthorized books which were a collection of interviews I had done. I haven’t read them myself… The books happening were something that was out of my control. Don’t call me weird but I try to put a positive spin on everything and I look at it like this – if somebody is going to write a book about you, there is obviously a story to tell!
What are the chances of you doing a Mis-Teeq reunion?
I would love a Mis-Teeq reunion… Su-Elise was staying over at my house the other day. She lives in Australia at the moment so I don’t think there will be a reunion anytime soon purely because of the logistics but I am working on it! I am trying to convince them to do something… I want to do a one-off show, a few nights in London with the girls, I am trying to get that to happen.
Amazing! Thank you very much, Alesha Dixon!
Alesha Dixon is the face of the new Sweet Smile fragrance from Impulse.
It may be a night centred around sport, but Sport Relief 2012 is still finding time to let out the popstars. LMFAO will appear on BBC1 between 7:00 and 7:30pm, to kick the night off with some shufflin’. Emeli Sandé is burning the midnight oil with a rendition of her current hit ‘Next to Me’ between 11 and 12pm. But JLS are the star attractions, with a performance of the official Sport Relief single ‘Proud’ set for between 9:30 and 10pm. Plus there’s dozens of other stars to make the whole show worth watching and donating to, from Strictly Come Dancing finalists Harry Judd and Chelsee Healey in an underwater challenge to the Britain’s Got Talent team visiting Benidorm. Tune in from 7pm on Friday 23rd March. We’ve added the night to our Pop Diary, hit like below if you’ll be watching.
Barack Obama’s Spotify playlist, Kanye & Jay-Z’s new video, Alesha Dixon’s Twitter hate and Adam Levine’s new record label – gossip!
Ever wanted to know what’s on Barack Obama’s iPod? Well we don’t have that, but we do have the next best thing. The US president has uploaded a 2012 Campaign playlist on Spotify which includes tracks from Florence And The Machine, No Doubt and U2 – there must be a mistake though because we can’t see Girls Aloud on there. Everyone loves Girls Aloud, right?
The rumour mill went into overdrive last night, claiming that Kanye West & Jay-Z were to play an impromptu gig in Shoreditch. Fans slowly gathered outside the high street station to be treated to a projection of the brand new ‘N****s In Paris’ video on a loop. If you were safe and sound at home, watching One Direction on Blue Peter, then reenact the moment by watching the video here on YouTube.
Alesha Dixon’s vocal talents have come into question by, wait for it, a Britain’s Got Talent reject! Auditionee Abbey Jordan wrote to the star on Twitter “I’m the girl out of ‘like mother like daughter’ at auditions today, before you slag of my mums singing? Listen to yourself! (sic)” Alesha stayed classy, leaving Abbey to move her hating on to David Walliams instead. How much we betting she’ll be back next year?
Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine has started up his own record label and has signed Matthew Morrison (better known as Will Schuester) as his first act. The Glee star will release his second album through the label and expressed his excitement at the signing, claiming that he and Adam shared a ‘vision’. We’ve had a vision of Adam Levine too – it looked more like this though.
