The 'Kiss The Stars' singer is also proud to see so many strong British artists making a mark on the industry.

Pixie Lott has revealed that she loves her "pop divas" like Rihanna and Beyonce because they are independent women who love "girl power".

The 'All About Tonight' singer told Capitalfm.com that she is also pleased to see such an array of UK boy bands and solo performers making an impact in the business.

She explained: "I'll always love my pop divas. I mean I love Beyonce, I love Rihanna, I love independent women who love girl power – they also inspire me.

"But then I love still male voices like James Morrison and then the boy bands are doing really well at the minute. So, we've got The Wanted, we've got JLS, we've got One Direction and they're all doing amazingly." 

Pixie also picked out such artists as Ed Sheeran and Wretch 32 and confessed there is so much room for everyone to do well.

"It's great that there's room for everyone to do great. I think there's some great UK people like Ed Sheeran, Wretch 32, Tinchy Stryder, Chipmunk – there's always great talent coming through," she added.

Meanwhile, Pixie also recently revealed to Capital that she would love to team up with Coldplay and told us that she will never quit music to pursue a fashion career.
