Singer Pixie Lott claims to be a student in order to get discounts on cinema tickets
Pixie Lott pretends to be a student so she can get half-price cinema tickets.
The 'Boys and Girls' singer - whose first two singles topped the British charts - has revealed she lies to staff at her local cinema so she can save money just like her friends, but admits it doesn't always go according to plan.
She said: "When I went to see 'The Twilight Saga: New Moon' I wanted to get in half-price like my friends, so I pretended to be a student, but they knew who I was! I keep getting recognised now. even when I went out for dinner with my parents a few nights ago, I was sat there in my comfy clothes and boots and everybody kept coming up to me all the time! I don't mind it though."
The 19-year-old star quickly rose to fame after releasing her debut LP 'Turn It Up' last September. Although she now has a glamorous pop star lifestyle, Pixie has admitted she used to apply for singing jobs in her local newspaper in a bid to become a "Pop Diva" - and often had to lie about her age.
She added: "I used to be in local productions and be singing and putting myself out there and I used to go to auditions too. I saw one in the newspaper looking for the next 'Pop Diva' and knew that I had to go. It was miles away o the other side of London and you had to be 16 and I was only 14, so my mum refused to take me, but I pestered and pestered her until she finally gave in. I lied about my age as well!"
