Girl Gang Assemble

"What could I do about this stuff? What is my area of expertise and how can I take action about things that I care about and can actually help with?" I don't want to do it alone. I'm powerless that way. I need a group of cool, passionate people who care and want to talk about serious shit but also use entertainment, creativity, storytelling and music to do it - blend entertainment with reality...

On Turning 27... And My New Video, 'She Rules'!

It feels like a very womanly age, I feel more secure in myself as I get older and I like this number a lot... I wrote letters to my sisters and the girlfriends back home that I couldn't spend the day with which in turn inspired a song. It's called <em>She Rules</em>.

Moving to LA, Coachella and Writing for <em>Only Gold</em> the Musical

I'm older and wiser and I know what I want now, so I'm sticking it out. I'm giving it a go. London, know that I love you and if Ukip become a genuine threat to us I would jump on a plane in a second to protest, but I just wanted to update you on what I'm up to right now, starting from scratch and living in Los Angeles.

To My Fans: Shepherd's Bush Empire + You

The gig showed me that this is more than just being about a record, or music, one album, one song, one thing. It's like a movement, and it's about community and friendship, loyalty and empowerment.

Help the Fight Against Hate Crime

I've never been involved nor had a friend involved with a hate crime before. I didn't know what to expect or how that would feel. I've read stories in the news. I've read about 'The Sophie Lancaster Foundation' online. In fact, I first heard of it because of my friend Mika. On 13 July, Mika went out with one of his best friends - a girl who dresses alternatively and has a lot of tattoos. They were in a chicken shop in Soho when a couple of guys took a disliking to her alternative look. They threatened to stab her because of the way she was dressed, Mika stood in and was beaten so badly, he now has a fracture in his face.

It's Time for Some Girl Talk!

There are a lot of emotions spread across the tracks from friendships gone bad, love and loss - a lot for listeners to connect to. I consider the record my mission statement on what it means to be a girl, and all of my strong, controversial opinions are laced throughout.
