Alexandra Burke talks dream collaborations, fancying Rihanna and breaking America!

[column width=half]
Hi, Alexandra! What’s going on with you?
I have loads of shows across the country, I am travelling a lot. I have been so busy so my brain is just on overload at the moment! I managed to get a break in Miami which I surprised my sister with but I had to have some very exciting meetings over there, that’s why I took her over with me.

There seems to be a lot of support growing for you in America – will you be trying to break the American market?
My American fans are really getting behind me, I will be going over there, I can promise you and I will break America! It is happening but in God’s time. It has to be in God’s time. I cannot rush it.

Who would you love to collaborate with?
When I do go to the States I would like to work with Usher, Beyoncé, Rihanna and Chris Brown. I was hanging with Usher last time he was in the UK!

Do you ever listen to your own music?
I love all of my songs but I could never listen to them! The only times I can do that is on the stage or in the studio. Actually, I heard a couple of my tracks in Superdrug not long ago and I started walking around listening.[/column]

Do you feel like you need to compete with each new artist on the scene?
When it comes to image, the words “compete” and “competition” are not in my vocabulary. There is enough room for everyone in this industry because we all are so diverse. I like to be me, I do like my curves, I like my hips and I love my booty and it ain’t going nowhere, EVER!!

What advice would you give to Little Mix?
If I could tell everyone one thing it would be that they are unique and they are special, there is nobody out there who looks like you or is anything like you. Once you find what you love to do in terms of music then stick to it because if you’re loving it and the fans are loving it then you will have no regrets!

Finally, do you have a celebrity crush at the moment?
The only person I have my eye on is Rihanna. No men, just Rihanna. She is SMOKING HOT.

Indeed, she is. Thank you, Alexandra!
Thank you!!

Alexandra will perform in Les Misérables as part of Children in Need’s POP Goes the Musical on 18 September. Blue, Geri Halliwell and Stooshe are also appearing in West End musicals in October and November. Details and tickets! [/column]
