Biography

Pixie Lott (born Victoria Louise Lott, 12.1.1991) Pixie Lott is a Brit Award-nominated singer and songwriter. She rose to fame with the release of her debut single, 'Mama Do (Uh Oh, Uh Oh)', which went straight to number one.

Childhood: Pixie Lott was born in Bromley, in South East London. Her father is a stockbroker and her mother is a housewife. She was nicknamed Pixie by her mother when she was a baby.

As a child, Pixie sang in her school choir, and attended the Italia Conti Associates Saturday School in Chislehurst from the age of five. She then went on to attend the main Italia Conti Academy of Theatre Arts, after being awarded a scholarship there.

As a student, she appeared in a West End production of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. Pixie also appeared in the BBC's Celebrate the Sound of Music, playing the role of Louisa von Trapp.

Aged 14, Pixie Lott performed as part of the chorus line for the opera Ca Ira, by Roger Waters, formerly of Pink Floyd.

Music Career: Pixie Lott made a breakthrough when L.A. Reid signed her to the Def Jam group, when she was just 15 years old. However, when she changed her manager, she eventually changed her record contract, and signed to Mercury Records (UK) and Interscope Records (US).

Lott's debut festival appearance was at 2009's Isle of Wight Festival, during her debut UK tour, in which she supported The Saturdays.

Pixie Lott's debut single was 'Mama Do (Uh Oh, Uh Oh)', released in June 2009. The single went straight to umber one on the UK singles chart as well as the iTunes chart, selling over 50,000 copies and being certified platinum in August 2009.

That same month, Pixie Lott had performed at the MTV World Stage Live in Malaysia, along with Kasabian and Dizzee Rascal.

Pixie Lott's next single, 'Boys and Girls', was released in September 2009 and became another number one for her. The single was followed by her debut album, entitled Turn It Up. The album was awarded 'gold' status the following month.

The third single to be released from Turn It Up was 'Cry Me Out'. The video for the single was directed by Jake Nava, who has made a name for himself directing videos for Beyoncé, Leona Lewis and Shakira.

Pixie Lott has written tracks for other artists, including Lisa Hordijk (the winner of the Dutch X Factor) and Alexandra Burke.

Lott has also made a number of TV appearances, in productions such as Alan Carr: Chatty Man, Loose Women and Friday Night with Jonathan Ross.

If someone was to ask Margot Robbie if blondes have more fun, she’d now be able to give an informed decision. This year the actress, who made her name starring alongside Leonardo DiCaprio in The Wolf of Wall Street, has dyed her tresses from blonde to brunette and now she’s debuted a new copper-coloured do.

Pixie Lott's Right, Maybe We Should Lay Off Justin Bieber


Justin Bieber Pixie Lott Selena Gomez

Whether you like it or not Beliebers, Justin Bieber has been a bit naughty lately. In 2013 alone, there has been tales of pot smoking, turning up late to his own concerts, getting evicted from nightclubs, urinating in a bucket in a top restaurant, hitting a photographer with his Ferrari and abandoning a poor monkey in Germany because he couldn’t provide the right paperwork for the animal. Sadly, that’s just a snapshot of some of the things that Justin’s been up to over the past year, and the popstar doesn’t seem to be slowing down this year, either.

Many have begun labeling the 19 year old pop sensation ‘troubled’, and his behaviour certainly does indicate that this may be the case. The press have been characteristically unkind regarding Bieber’s misdemeanors, but British popstar Pixie Lott has valiantly come to his defense. Pixie explained to The Daily Mirror: “I feel sorry for Justin Bieber. If you think about it he’s just 19 and people make mistakes at that age. I can imagine loads of boys across the country doing the same thing”.

It’s been announced pop star Pixie Lott is to jump over the stage barrier and get in front of the cameras after it was revealed by the BBC that she’s to join the cast of BBC1 drama Inspector George Gently.

What Exactly Is A Twitter Dress? Here's Nicole Scherzinger To Explain


Nicole Scherzinger Kelly Holmes Pixie Lott Jimmy Carr

Nicole Scherzinger was the guest of honour at last night’s launch of EE, the 4G network. And to add a real sense of occasion to the event, she was wearing the first ever ‘Twitter Dress.’ The elaborate garment was designed by Cute Circuit and included 500 Swarovski crystals, according to STV, as well as around 2000 LED lights, which displayed messages posted to Twitter, when users included the address @EE and the hashtag #tweethedress. So, as Twitter users posted messages, they scrolled across Nicole Scherzinger’s… er… lower regions. We’re not entirely sure WHY this dress was invented but it sure looked interesting!

They’d done a decent job of hiding all the necessary battery packs and LED fittings, anyway and Nicole was looking sumptuous as ever in the silk chiffon dress. We’ll bet she was pretty warm inside all those lights, though; especially when she took to the stage to perform ’Try With Me’ and the Pussycat Dolls song ‘Don’t Cha’ Nicole may have been the only celebrity there in a ground-breaking Twitter dress, but there were plenty of other stars out in force last night.

Kelly Holmes, Pixie Lott and Jimmy Carr were also in attendance at the event, which was hosted by EE, the company that owns Orange and T-Mobile, to launch the UK’s fourth generation mobile network. Tomorrow, of course, will be back to normal for Nicole Scherzinger, as she will return to the judging panel on X Factor.

In its third week, Tuskegee sold 129,000 copies to rise to No.1 and become his third chart topping album. It was for a time, the second best-selling album of 2012, behind Adele's all-conquering 21.
