Charli XCX admits she was ‘obsessed’ with Britney Spears and the Spice Girls when she was younger.
The 23-year-old singer credits the ‘Toxic’ hitmaker with sparking her desire to be a pop star and she still thinks the star makes ‘great’ music.
She said: ‘I just started making my own songs and I made so many of them that I thought I wanted to show them to people.
‘From when I was younger, I was always fascinated by Britney Spears.
‘I was always obsessed with her when I was a kid. I think that’s what made me want to be in the music industry.
‘I think her music is great.’
And the ‘Boom Clap’ hitmaker was also a big fan of the Spice Girls.
She added: ‘The Spice Girls were a big influence on me growing up, then Britney. Super, super pop stuff when I was younger, for sure.’
Charli is also incredibly thankful that her parents were always so supportive of her musical ambitions.
