Quotes and snaps below…
On the Dolls, she revealed:
We were a powerful little unit and our time together was electric. There is always a possibility that we will get back together, but I am enjoying where I am right now.
I’ve worked hard to be able to stand out on my own and have my name out there and not have it under the name of a band. That feels empowering.
On ‘creating’ One Direction:
“We had a bunch of great young guys with One Direction, but none of them were ready to go out on their own in the boys’ category. I thought, ‘If we put this group together the girls are going to go crazy. Together they will be irresistible.’ Simon was very smart.He listened to me”.
On the X Factor UK/ US:
“Everything is honest and innocent. A UK audience can tell when something is from the heart. They have a great sense of humour and it’s more playful.
There was a lot of hype around the US X Factor. The show was under a lot of pressure, and I was part of that. I had a difficult category because it was the ‘olders’, and in this industry the older you get the less chance you have of being a successful artist.”
