Interactive Interview: Eliza Doolittle on Cee-Lo and Taking the States


London based singer/songwriter Eliza Doolittle may have a familiar name, but she’s bringing us something entirely new with her self-titled pop whirlwind of a debut album. Combining her enviable ability to construct a perfect hook with an onstage presence that mashes up retro and modern sensibilities, Doolittle is already a platinum artist in her native UK, and is now ready to let the US in on her musical secret.

From impossible-to-get-out-of-your-head singles like “Rollerblades” and “Pack Up” to her live cover of Cee-Lo’s “Fuck You,” Doolittle puts a stylish spin on everything she does, setting her up to be one of 2011’s breakout stars. In our exclusive interactive video interview, she talks about her personal inspirations and second loves, her connection to Coldplay, and who would be right above Cee-Lo on her list of dream collaborators.
