Cultural Life: Pixie Lott, Singer
Friday 20 November 2009
James Morrison's new tune "You Give me Something", Kings of Leon's new album 'Aha Shake Heartbreak', Jazmine Sullivan's album 'Fearless', and Jay-Z's song "Empire State of Mind" with Alicia Keys.
'Summer Heights High', an Australian comedy series, filmed in documentary style. It's about high school life, written and acted by Chris Lilley, who plays three characters, including the camp drama teacher Mr G, who really reminds me of a teacher I had. I saw 'X Factor' for the first time two weeks ago.
I cried during 'Saw V1'. It's pretty hardcore and not for the faint-hearted. I also saw the rom-com '(500) Days of Summer', on the plane. I like the boy Joseph Gordon-Levitt who stars in it.
Biographies are best. I like reading about people's rise to fame. I just read Britney Spears' which I preferred to Mariah Carey's because it's more realistic. Mariah's was just too far-fetched.
I saw 'Dreamboats and Petticoats' at the Savoy Theatre because my friend Daisy Wood Davis is in it.
