O

nce a cute little pop star with a famous dad, now a sexually charged 25-year-old, it could be possible the new Alexandra Flume is growing up too fast. As we are greeted by herself, we find Miss Flume perched, arms wrapped round her knees on the hard surfaced amp. Bright-eyed, bare-legged, her red varnished nails peeping out from her voluminous black leather jacket. With her tumble of golden hair excessively styled for the TMM photo shoot and pumped up red lipstick the solo star resembles the look of a diva rather than a sweet, innocent pop star – all of which Alexandra would class as her ‘worst nightmare’. Alexandra, 25, was labelled by overheated as degraded and corrupted after her

seven year marriage spilt with 54-year-old Noah Gray. Their marriage that lasted a sustained seven years with Flume married at the age of 18 qualifies as ancient history in pop terms. Unfortunately for Alexandra, the drama doesn’t finish there as she was recently asked to be the promotional face of a gold digger website aimed at younger women wanting to date older men, which of course she wasn’t remotely interested in doing – she sniggers but to her content the manager had already over-booked. What a relief! Quite so! She may now be dating another chap, thirty six years older than her but it would be unfair and callous to categorize on Alexandra’s choice of men. She first hit the UK charts in 2005 with her debut single ‘Feather like’ followed by her award winning album ‘Catching fire’ grabbing number one spot on the charts only a few weeks after its release – incredible! Then came her second album ‘Painted in stripes’, of which she has proved herself to be a talented young individual with power and passion. So much that this year she has been chosen to tour with the band Florence and the Machine but ‘I’m a little nervous and apprehensive’ says Alexandra, ‘I don’t want to let Florence or the other group members down as they are such an incredible band with such a high reception. But it was flattering to be asked and I’ve always looked up to them as a group’. Could it be that Alexandra has secretly set her sights on being the fifth member of the band? ‘No’ she laughs. ‘Although I wouldn’t decline if they presented me with a vast number of Starbucks vouchers’ she giggles. ‘I have been so busy recently writing and producing new music that it hasn’t quite crossed mymind I’ll be

performing alongside my favourite band’. Although Alexandra is living the dream, she has not always been so lucky ‘I left home when I was 17 to study music and theatre at college in Nottingham. I was very mature and independent – I lived on my own and took up a number of jobs just to help myself survive - I worked in the supermarket by day and pubs and restaurants at night. I had to be strong not only for my mother, but my brother and sisters too’. The family home was in rural Nottingham, where she grew up with her older brother Nathan and younger sister Jo and single mum Linda ‘Times were tough but we fought through them and held our heads up high, everything I do is for my family’. As a young teen Alexandra spent her free time playing the guitar and writing songs – something she loved. My mother could never afford singing lessons so I watched as all my friends went to their usual Saturday classes. It wasn’t fun, feeling left out but my mother did everything in her will to make our lives better.
