Zara Larsson: 'That was a receipt for all the hard work I've put in'

'Lush Life' hitmaker Zara Larsson has shared what has been the icing on the cake of 2016 in her world. 

She told Newsbeat that winning the Best New Artist title at the MTV Europe Music Awards was one of the highlights of her year because she had such tough competition and worked so hard to get to where she is now:

"That was a huge deal for me, especially as you can only that win that once. I felt that was a receipt for all the hard work I've put in."

She went onto talk about her parents and how supportive they are, adding: "Mum talks about my career all the time. I love gossiping with her about everything. Dad is a more low-key fan. He doesn't say much but when I borrow his tablet or computer and go into YouTube you can see that he's been watching all my videos."
