We’re big fans of the lovely songstress Eliza Doolittle so we thought we’d ask a few pressing questions about her summer plans and diva demands. Read on to see what she has to say!

Mimi: Your album is released in July, where do you draw your inspirations from for your music?

Eliza: I’m inspired by whatever I see, feel, hear about, watch on the TV…anything. It can be something that I really need to get off my chest so I write or something a friend is going through which gets my thoughts going.
 
M: We love your tunes and will definitely have you accompany us on the beach this summer! What would be on your beach holiday playlist?

E: This year I’ve really gotten into the Drums, definitely a beach record!
I always listen to Lauryn Hill ’Miseducation’ on the beach, just has that summer vibe.
 
M: We hope we can safely say summer is finally upon on us and to BATD HQ this can only mean one other thing… Festival season! Will we be able to catch you at any of this year’s big ones?

E: Yes! I am playing lots and lots of festivals.  Bestival, Secret Garden Party, V fest, T in the park, Oxegen and some others too!  All are up on my myspace (myspace.com/elizadoolittle).

M: When you’re performing on the road, do you have a beauty specific regime that you stick to keep you looking fresh and are there any hero products you couldn’t live without?

E: I definitely can’t live without eyeliner but a good way to get by is to decorate your eye lashes! 
 
M: What would be your biggest diva demand when you’re performing? Are you pretty low maintenance or are we talking hand-painted glass Evian bottles and caviar on ice?!

E: Oh yes, I have to have rose petals flung in front of me as I walk, specifically vanilla flavoured candles burning as I sing and Picasso paintings on my tent dressing room walls!  Haha!  No, just water really.
 
M: When you’re not on the road, what items are in your staple wardrobe?

E: Loads of tights, all different colours and patterns.  Lots of Nike high tops and of course short shorts! 
 
M: What’s your favourite thing to do in your free time? Do you have a favourite hangout?
 
E: I love going to hear great music whether it’s live or going out dancing. And I always hang out with my friends, playing poker and watching football.

We’ve been hanging out at my friends office space recently…quite random but seems to fit us all in and they’re building an amazing roof space to watch the World Cup on when it’s sunny!  So please let England stay in long enough for when it’s ready!

Check out Eliza’s new song ‘Pack Up’ is out 28th July.
