Amelia Lily has gone all futuristic to help celebrate the launch of The Sims 3 Into The Future. We have never seen a pop star look this hot wearing clothes from 2113 since… erm… EVER!
Amelia Lily revealed that she was excited about the shoot, especially since she is is an avid Sims fan. The Sims 3 Into The Future allows players to switch between the present day and future and you don’t even need a DeLorean to do so!
Our latest Alarm Pop comes from X Factor alumni, pop princess and expert party planner, Amelia Lily. It’s a track called ‘Truth Or Dare’, which Girls Aloud’s Ten: The Hits Tour attendees would have heard live when Ms. Lily supported them at the beginning of the year.
‘Truth Or Dare’ is quite similar to the other material that Amelia has released with a strong ‘Shut Up (And Give Me Whatever You Got)’ vibe. It’s filled with toe-tapping beats and has reminded us just how much we miss A-Lilz pop/rock vocals.
It was originally intended to be released on her permanently delayed album, ‘Be A Fighter’. With the LP currently being reworked and improved, will ‘Truth Or Dare’ make it on to the album?
What do you think of the track? Would you like to hear it on ‘Be A Fighter’ or do you think Amelia needs to scrap the Xenomania tracks and go for a new sound?
POP BITS. The X Factor really is good at picking pop stars, isn’t it? Sometimes we feel like we don’t give Louis, Gary, Nicole, Sharon, Simon, Cheryl and Dannii the credit they deserve. After all, they did give us One Direction!
The tenth series of X Factor is drawing near and the musical geniuses behind the X Factor decided to throw together a little mash up for us all to enjoy. It features winners and runner-uppers from the hit TV Talent show including One Direction, Olly Murs, Little Mix, Cher Lloyd and even Shayne Ward! No sign of Matt Cardle though and it seems as though his management isn’t too happy about that.
Give the megamix a spin below and let us know what you think:
POP BITS. What with JLS splitting up, The Wanted setting the internet alight with their new track, Union J emerging from the recording studio with an ace new tune and One Direction being… well, One Direction, it really is a boy bands world in the big bad pop world out there. It’s hard for solo artists like poor Amelia Lily to even get a look in, never mind the news that the ‘You Bring Me Joy’ songstress’ album ‘Be A Fighter’ has been delayed yet again.
The album was at first meant to tickle our ear drums on the 21st of April but was then pushed back to May 20th and now the album has been moved all the way back to June 29th. The delays have us worried and we fear the worst, that ‘Be A Fighter’ might share the same fate as fellow Xenomania act Mini Viva’s debut album (i.e. it mightn’t even happen).
We hope that Amelia takes inspiration from her album title and fights to get it out there. We all need to get behind her and help make this album happen, after all it’s only fair after she helped us plan an awesome imaginary party. Let’s all say a prayer that the party isn’t over for Ms. Lily.

THIS COMPETITION IS NOW CLOSED
POP BITS. It’s all getting exciting for X-Factor graduate Amelia Lily. She’s three-for-three when it comes to amazing singles and has just released the video for third single ‘Party Over’. She’s been touring the country playing in front of thousands supporting Girls Aloud. All this from a girl who was never even supposed to be in the X-Factor finals.
The video sees the pink-haired starlet seemingly travelling through time both surveying the damage of a house party as well as engaging in the debauched anarchy getting in a pillow fight with a wolf and losing a bet that ends with her getting a tattoo. It’s fair to say a good time is had by all.
It’s been a crazy whirlwind for a girl who’s still only 18. Amelia said of her experience, “Only 15 months ago, I’d just finished my GCSEs and left school. A couple of months later, I was on the biggest television show going, got knocked out, came back, got to the final, came third, & got a record deal. Now I’ve released two singles, shot videos in Los Angeles, and recorded my first album!” The album, called ‘Be A Fighter’ will be released on April 24th and if the previous singles are anything to go by, it’ll be an absolute corker. POP BITS OUT.
Amelia Lily is one busy pop star these days. Not only is she supporting Girls Aloud on their national tour, she’s also found the time to unleash the lyric video for her new single ‘Party Over’. As you’d expect it’s another pulsating dance banger – a little bit clubbier than her last two singles, but still sprinkled liberally with that distinctive Xenomania magic.
Now, here’s the awkward part. Much as we loved it, Amelia’s last single ‘Shut Up (& Give Me Whatever You Got)’ didn’t exactly set the charts alight in the way her amazing debut ‘You Bring Me Joy’ did, so she’ll be hoping that this one is strong enough to put her back in the top 5 where she belongs.
We really hope Amelia gets the success she deserves with this single – she’s a great pop star with bags of attitude and a brilliant voice, as she aptly demonstrated during her time on X Factor many moons ago. ‘You Bring Me Joy’ is still one of our favourite songs from last year, and we’re anticipating more Xenomania-penned gems when she finally releases her debut album in April. But as we know when it comes to Brian Higgins and co, for every Girls Aloud there’s a Rachel Stevens or a Mini Viva who burn brightly, then all-too-quickly fall by the wayside despite a host of brilliant tunes. (The second Rachel Stevens album is still a total lost pop classic, and ‘One Touch’ by Mini Viva should have been huge).
Fortunately, Amelia survived this download or ditch. We can’t wait for the whole album.

If One Direction can come third on The X Factor and go on to score worldwide success that even has the power to stop Justin Bieber winning a fan-voted VMA, then so can Amelia Lily. At least, that’s the dream.
The hotshot, who’s on course for a No1 debut this weekend with ‘You Bring Me Joy’, told Capital FM that she’s already got her eyes on the US of A. “When I went to LA for the music video, I just looked around and I kept thinking in my head that I can see myself out here,” she said. “Not even just music-wise, like living-wise as well… The UK will always be my home but I would like to eventually go out there because I just think it’s so inspiring out there.
Continuing her passionate speech, she added: “It really makes you want to go further and more determined but I’d love to go to America one day with my music and stuff. It’s amazing watching One Direction because they went through the same journey as me – they came third [on The X Factor] and now they’re playing at Madison Square Garden. That’s my dream. So maybe one day, fingers crossed.”
