Revelations 004: Charli XCX
In our fourth episode the pop star sensation dreams about living in a non-digital world and gives advice to her younger self...
Welcome to Revelations, where we’ll be asking a series of famous faces all the questions you’ve been dying to know the answers to. This is no Diane Sawyer-style, tear-inducing Hollywood hoohah, oh no. This is where the real beans (of the Heinz variety) are spilled. Where we find out what your favourite popstar keeps under their bed. What they think about in the bath. Whether they’ve ever been in love and, the big one, their take on the meaning of life.
This time we’ve got Charli XCX on board, and we’re honoured. In the last couple of years, Charli’s dropped more bangers than most pop stars manage in their lifetime, and she’s actually made it look like fun along the way. If you’re reading this, we assume you’ve been streaming the hell out of Charli – an amazing album packed with some of the most adventurous artists on the pop landscape. In her episode of Revelations, Charli chats about standing your ground in the industry, taking the afterparty to the hotel room and her fantasies of ditching social media in favour of carrier pigeons.
