Pixie Lott has hit back at suggestions saying she is a “manufactured Pop puppet”.
The Mama Do singer has admitted that it is getting increasingly frustrating to hear that she has no control over her career and believes it is obvious that she has been trying to crack into the industry since she was young.
Speaking to The Mail On Sunday, Lott said: "The biggest misconception about me is that I'm a manufactured Pop puppet.
"I'm my own creation and I march to my own beat.
"I've been writing my own songs since I was 13 and I've accumulated hundreds of them. I've been working obsessively in the studio since my mid-teens.
"One by one, my childhood dreams are coming true.
"As a kid I'd watch MTV and think how great it would be to have my own music videos on those shows. Now I turn on MTV and, along the bottom of the screen, it often reads, 'Coming next...Pixie Lott.' That's so strange that I can't even begin to make sense of it."
Speaking to the Daily Mail, the singer revealed that she will never succumb to the stereotypical troubled rock-star lifestyle: “If I even came close to that, my mum would take me and lock me up in her house.
“One of the dangers of a singer living quite dangerously is that their behavior becomes part of the brand. The rock-star stereotype is someone who takes drugs and is off their face all the time.
“I don’t think you need to live that way to be a rock star. I’m not going to do anything that will damage my voice because my voice is my career and singing is my passion.
"I was singing in the cot and I’ll still be singing when they’re nailing down my coffin.”
