Here are 5 things you probably didn’t know about this Britpop sensation.

  1. She was discovered on MySpace (remember that??) when she was just 14, after uploading her self-recorded album. Luckily, her career has lasted a lot longer than MySpace…
  2. She has synesthesia, a condition which allows her to see colours when she hears music. She’s stated she loves music that’s black, pink, purple or red, but hates music that’s green, yellow or brown.
  3. Her real name is Charlotte Emma Aitchison. As for her stage name, “XCX” doesn’t actually stand for anything; it was simply how she used to sign off on her MSN Messenger conversations.
  4. She’s given her fan base a name and it’s actually quite a good one – Charli’s Angels’.
  5. Avril Lavigne – the Canadian pop artist – was such a huge influence on Charli that she even took to dressing like her, ties and all.
