Charli XCX News Archive
We can't even begin to express our heartbreak over the tragic situation in Paris.
Similarly to ourselves, many celebrities are horrified and sickened by the senseless terrorist attack.
Take a look at the heartsick and supportive tweets (below):
She may have cancelled her world tour, but that doesn't mean she's letting up on her music.
As we previously reported, Charli XCX decided to cut her SUCKER concerts short so that she could focus on her craft… and we sure are glad she did.
That's because the 23-year-old debuted her new single Vroom Vroom on Tuesday, and it sounds like a return to form for some vintage Charli!
While the chorus and the verses are catchy, the synth-heavy hook is by far our fave part of the song.
We really hope this SOPHIE-produced track is just a taste of what Charli's next album is going to offer.
Ch-ch-check out the first single in the new era of Charli XCX (above)!!!

Iggy Azalea Throws Mad Shade At Rita Ora's Request For A Lady Marmalade Remake — See What She Said HERE!
Well that took no time at all!
Rita Ora recently came forward and talked about a little side project she'd LOVE to do with a few fellow artists.
While the idea is pretty ambitious seeing as how AH-Mazing the 2001 remake was with Christina Aguilera, Pink, Lil Kim, and Mya, we'd still DEFINITELY be interested in seeing what this new one would be like!
Well we're not so sure it's going to happen now as Iggy took to Twitter to share her thoughts on it — while throwing a bit of shade Rita's way, saying:
Rita Ora Wants To Team Up With THESE Three Superstar Singers To Remake Lady Marmalade! What Do You Think About Her Selection?
We're TOTALLY on board!
She recently opened up about one of her favorite covers of a song she LOVES and revealed that she really wants to create another version of it!
T-Swift does it again!
Ch-ch-check out the awesome high energy performance (below)!!!
Charli XCX doesn't want anything to do with drama!
While some of her fellow female artists are known for feuding as much as singing, the 23-year-old Brit thinks that most women in music support each other.
In an interview in Untitled magazine's #GirlPower issue (whose cover you'll EXCLUSIVELY see on PerezHilton), Charli compares today's industry to that of her idol Debbie Harry, who rose to fame in the '80s.
"[Debbie] was saying how… when she was performing at the peak of Blondie… you could really expect a girl to stab you in the back… I feel like the total opposite now… most women are really on that level of mutual respect and love for one another in their artistry."
Not only does Charli support other female artists, she also supports positive body image!
We hope everything's okay with Charli XCX!
She announced on Facebook Friday that she unfortunately will be canceling the rest of the dates on her Charli and Jack Do America tour.
The pop princess had been co-headlining with the band Bleachers, but revealed that she can't continue in a lengthy post where she explains that she feels really emotionally deprived:
"For personal reasons I will not be able to continue this tour. These personal reasons include the fact that I need to be creative. Artists tour for a really really long time and I have been on the road for a while now, probably not as long as some, but for me it feels like an eternity. I am struggling to create whilst I'm on the road and that is making me unhappy."
She continued to say that she was seriously starting to get really sad while traveling all the time:
"As an artist I need to move quickly and write a lot to not feel restless. Sometimes touring really puts me in this isolated world where I feel down and sad but primarily I struggle to multitask and write songs at the same time which is what I need to do to feel OK. I never want to do a show where I just feel like I'm going through the motions. I want to perform and feel alive and like I want to be there and if I force myself to do this, I will not perform a great show for you."
She went on to add that she loved the time she spent with Bleachers and their frontman Jack Antonoff, and made sure to let her fans know she will still be performing at his festival in New Jersey in September.
She also wanted to share with them just how sorry she is for canceling:
"I am so sorry to all of the angels I am bailing on last minute. Please know this was not an easy decision. I feel terrible letting you down like this and I really I hope I haven't messed up your plans too much. I've been honest and even though some of you will be understandably angry, I hope you can respect my telling the truth in this matter. Once again sorry."
