'Boys and Girls' singer Pixie Lott has revealed she would love to collaborate with her childhood idol Mariah Carey
Pixie Lott wants to duet with Mariah Carey.
The 'Boys and Girls' singer was inspired by Mariah to pursue a music career when she was younger and she would love to collaborate with her idol.
She said: "When I was growing up, Mariah Carey was always one of my favourite singers. She made me want to get into music and helped me develop my singing. I would definitely like to emulate her, because she is such a big talent and is so driven.
"I would love to meet her and if I ever got the chance to do a duet with her that would be nice as well!"
Although the 18-year-old British star enjoys fame and chart success, she shuns showbiz parties for low-key nights out in her hometown.
Pixie told New! magazine: "It is cool to get dressed up and go out somewhere nice with your friends for a meal, I would still rather go to Nando's!
"I have always loved it there and I think most people my age do, too. If I am out with my friends having fun and letting my hair down, then I love having a few cocktails. My favourite at the moment is a mojito."
