Pixie Lott

Nicole Nodland

The InStyle crystal ball is never wrong - so we knew Pixie Lott was going to be H.U.G.E months ago.

And hey presto, her very first single Mama Do (all together now - uh oh uh oh) topped the charts quicker than you could say "ooh, that's a good tune".

Naturally, with our eye for hot, new talent InStyle nabbed Ms Lott for a huge, uber glam eight page fashion shoot and a girly chat.

Here are some things we think you need to know about the 18-year-old singing sensation, in her own words:

**"Mum told me I've been singing since I was in my cot. Which is strange because I'm from the least musical family. Ever. I must be a genetic throwback!"

**"My real name is Victoria. But when I was born I was so small, like a fairy, that my Mum called me Pixie because of that! And it just stuck."

**"I started recording my album in LA at 15 while I was still at school and studying for my GCSE's. I had to take a lot of time out of school but I managed to straight A's in Dance, Drama, English Lit, English Language, Maths, History, French and Science."

**"I've been offered drugs and if I wanted to do that I would have by now. I'll have a drink when I'm out with friends, but not when I'm working because it's bad for my voice. A lot of my songs are high and I have to really belt them out."

**" I loved making my video for Mama Do. It was a really long day - 7.00am - 2.00am. And afterwards we all had bruises because one aspect of the dance routine involved slapping our thighs!"
