In Singapore to promote her second studio album “Young Foolish Happy”, the bubbly British artiste, whose real name is Victoria Louisse Lott, got to play stylist to two lucky fans during her three-day promotional tour here.
Decked out in a casual yet chic outfit that she had put together herself, Lott met with the two “Get Styled by Pixie” winners at Topshop Knightsbridge where she was seen shopping and picking out clothes for them.
Aside from styling her fans during her first trip to Singapore, the starlet also met fans for a karaoke session on Thursday afternoon and made her appearance at her autograph session at Bugis Junction later that day.
While Lott may have met many of her die-hard Singapore fans during her visit, the bubbly star confessed that she did not encounter any crazy ones here.
“They are all just so lovely!”
“It’s only quite crazy when they wait outside hotels whenever I have to get into the car and my manager is up against the door trying to get things sort out.
“But that is always quite funny; nothing weird or unpleasant,” said Lott with a chuckle.
21-year-old Lott rose to prominence at a tender age of 18 with her single “Mama Do” and debut album “Turn It Up” and have since gained a huge following; however, just like any other girl her age, Lott also has idols she looks up to.
“I’m a massive fan of [English recording artist-songwriter] Adele!” said the star.
“She (Adele) has got a soul to her voice, doesn’t try too hard, and just sings honestly about her situation. It feels so genuine and that’s why I love Adele,” Lott gushed.
While Lott has not had the chance to collaborate with Adele yet, the petite star did get the opportunity to work with another of her favourite celebrities – American singer-songwriter Stevie Wonder – in her album “Young Foolish Happy”.
“I was just over the moon to have met him, but to have him (Wonder) on the song it was just amazing,” remarked Lott.
Lott, who confessed that she only heard about Korean pop when she was in Japan, also collaborated with Korean boy band Big Bang’s G-Dragon and TOP for the track “Dancing on My Own” in the Asian version of “Young Foolish Happy”.
Lott revealed that she did not interact much with G-Dragon and TOP and had only met them at the Japan’s Springroove festival in April this year.
“GD can speak more English than TOP, so it was easier to talk to GD, but they were all really lovely and nice.
“It was cool to hang out with them backstage and just get to know them a bit. I’d love to work with them again!” said Lott.
“Dancing on My Own” originally featured American singer-songwriter Marty James but after Lott heard G-Dragon and TOP’s version, which sounded “fresh, a little bit different and just really good”, the singer decided to put the new version in the Asian edition of her “Young Foolish Happy” album.
For Lott’s showcase in Singapore on Friday, however, it was neither Marty James nor G-Dragon or TOP who joined the beautiful star during her performance of “Dancing on My Own,” but Singaporean rap artiste-songwriter Kevin Lester who joined her on stage.
Held at ZIRCA, Lott’s “Young Foolish Happy” showcase saw more than 800 Crazy Cats (the name Lott’s fans call themselves) going gaga over the talented singer, who performed songs from her latest album as well as her debut studio album “Turn It Up”.
She serenaded her fans with hits such as “All About Tonight” and “Bright Lights” then ended her show on a high note with “Kissing The Stars”.
“Thank you so much! I’m overwhelmed! Hope to see you soon!” exclaimed an excited Lott before disappearing backstage.
