Little Boots reveals her 'Pop Idol' audition
If you’ve ever been knocked back from an audition, take heart from this stunning pop star on the rise to fame.
Little Boots, aka Victoria Hesketh – she took her stage name from insane Roman tyrant Caligula (that’s the translation from the Latin) – was once shown the door by Simon Cowell.
She said: “I got to the third round of Pop Idol and was kicked out. Simon wasn’t very kind. But it helped give me a thicker skin in dealing with people. I swiftly realised that shows like Pop Idol are no short cut to the top. That comes from hard work. Pop Idol was an experience but litle else.”
Little Boots has been kicking about LA with Katy Perry, Kanye West and other famous faces, but she is missing her home town of Blackpool. Speaking to Look magazine, on sale today, she said: “The hottest trend in Blackpool is blow-up dolls, fake breasts and wigs. I haven’t worn fake breasts on a night out – though I probably need to as I’ve no boobs! I miss the fish and chips though.”
Her cracking debut single New In Town is out this week and is on course for chart glory.
