Little Boots' mind-blowing success
Little Boots' success blows her mind. The singer - whose real name is Victoria Hesketh - is amazed that she is now in a position to be on her favourite TV shows and performing at the venues she used to watch her heroes at. The 25-year-old British star said: "I've done some cool stuff. I've been all over the world. I'm playing Shepherd's Bush next week, that blows my mind. "I've got a gold record. It's surreal. I think the Glastonbury show was really special and 'Friday Night With Jonathan Ross.' Doing things you've grown up with. " Little Boots - who received attention at the beginning of the year when she topped the BBC Sound of Music poll 2009 and received a BRIT Critics Choice nomination - said she's pleased with how well the album did, considering how much pressure she felt at the time. She told NME magazine: "I just wanted to get it to as many people as possible. The fact that 200,000 people bought my album is nuts. It's a lot of people! "I was sat at the pictures the other night and this woman sat next to me and was like, 'My three-year-old makes me put on your song every night on repeat', and it nearly made me cry. "That's what it's about. It's been a total head-f**k but it's been an amazing journey."Posted on 17 Dec 2009 07:30 to category : Music News
