new addition enters the music industry. Sixteen year old, Noreen Ahmed’s previous image leaked out and it’s not pretty. However her makeover to what she is now is amazing. It’s like a different person. Her black tacky trousers are replaced by a tight mini skirt, her plain white shirt is changed to a bright red top, her hideous tie is altered by nice funky accessories, her revolting shoes are substitued with sexy high heels and the biggest face and hair. Her face now has makeup and her hair is now blown up in variety of hairstyles. PORTRAIT: RUQAIYAH KADERBHAI

W

e asked her a few questions about her new image and her thoughts on it.

Your new image to the public, are you comfortable with it? It’s rather attractive than the whole ‘geek’ look I had on before. I wouldn’t say I hate it, but I also wouldn’t say I

love it. I miss my simple clothes and having to wake up before a recording or an interview and having to think what outfit I should wear is pretty hard. And also I have heard a lot that how clothes can become out of fashion so you have to go out and buy new clothes to be in the fashion which I personally think it’s a waste of money. But everyone has their own views on clothes. All this makeup is alright to be honest. My mum used to always brag on about how it’s about time I should wear makeup. The only big problem I still have is wearing heels. I can’t walk in them for a long time. Do you think you were forced into becoming like this or would you have preferred to stay as a geek, a pretty looking geek? No, I wasn’t forced at all. I took this whole decision upon myself. When the record producer called me up saying that they want to publish my music to the UK on their live radio I didn’t think it would be so big but then I got another call that evening saying that my song is hit and they want me to come and sing in their recording studio. So I didn’t even think that I should go all nicely dressed up I was just so happy. So when I entered the studio, the people just stared at me like I was some freak. I started feeling my face to see if I had anything on it because I got paranoid. The record producers didn’t say anything but just told me to sing the song. I figured afterwards that it was because the way I was dressed. They obviously didn’t expect me to turn up in big glasses, a shirt and trousers. I didn’t see the reason why they were so fussed about it because all they wanted was to record my voice. But then I figured that I had to change my appearance for the ordinary public to like my music as well. Her music was said to be inspirational and explained her life from her childhood when she took an interest in music up till when her music was heard. Noreen says she is ‘a shy character who doesn’t speak out and was one of those who

68


sat at the back of the classroom, unnoticed’. She also m e n tioned that ‘if my music becomes more and m o r e popular I don’t want to be one of those pop-stars who are chased everywhere they go by the media. I still want the simplicity in my life.’ Well we all know that’s going to be hard ‘cause that’s all the media want – to change the simple lives to loud, chaotic lives.

We also established her favourites and dislikes when interviewing Noreen:

“sat at the back of classroom,

unnoticed”

Moving away from her career, we found out a few tiny facts. Firstly, she has never ever had any spots on her face so far, fingers crossed. She says that ‘the magic in this is that not to put on any foundation. The chemicals in the foundation spoil the skin. To get rid of the spots all you need is moisturising lotion. That does the magic.’ Another little point we found out is

What is your favourite colour? Bright yellow – ‘yellow isn’t a particularly popular colour but it expresses happiness and freshness.’

What is your favourite animal? Horse – ‘I used to go horse riding before I started my GCSEs and horses became a part of my life. It was just so relaxing, riding them through the long grass field and the wind blowing into my hair. It felt like I was living life to the fullest with nobody around.’ What is your favourite food cuisine? Chinese – ‘I’m not fussy food wise. I would eat anything that’s on the menu or the table. But if I had to chose, my favourite food would be Chinese. I love the noodles and

chance best

“take a , you never know, it could be the thing you do” her motto to life: ‘Take a chance. You never know, it could be the best thing you do.’ We treasured out a deeper secret in Noreen’s life; her love life. Unfortunately she honestly confirmed that she has not actually had a love life. She accepted the fact that no one would ever go out with someone who looked like her. She said ‘this whole geek look is so stereotypical but people forget to see who is under those big glasses and disgusting trousers. People judge a book by its cover too much.’

Hey fans! I am coming to you to sign my first album!

SUPERSTAR SOPHIE Sophie has now announced that she will be making an official music video for her new single ‘Let It Out’. This song was written by her after she got dumped by Ryder Daniels, She says that ‘you shouldn’t keep your feelings inside during a relationship even if it may close the relationship because in the end whatever happens is for the “whatever best’. The shooting is for the of the music video began two weeks ago. The choreographer was having a hard time to fit his ideas with Sophie’s song and her emotions which made him

quit. Sophie’s manager is now on a hunt for a new choreographer. Sophie decided to think of her own ideas for the video and recruited her own friends and family who were able to shoot the video for her. Her friends and family said that her ideas were too simple but were somehow effective and combined a happens really attractive music which ” video may become number one. Sophie’s manager felt that Sophie was not able to be herself in front of her close family even though they knew how she showed her-

self to the world but Sophie disagrees and says is just the tone of the song making her feel that way. The music video portrays Sophie’s angry side which is new to fans. The song itself is quite different to the other songs she has done. Few fans on Twitter commented on her new s o n g f e w weeks a g o stating that ‘a footsteps” change in a pop star is good and needed’. However some fans have tweeted ‘it looks like she is following Taylor Swift’s foot-

steps; she did songs It is scheduled to come out like Love Story and on New Years Day. Teardrops on my Guitar and then she came out with “I am for Picture to Burn, I’m the not surprised if by the other fans” the video turns out just like it’. Some fans are obviously not happy with the change in Sophie While getting the information but she doesn’t care about and details about Sophie’s their opinions of her as she music video we found out believes in freedom and another little secret about ‘one should be allowed to her. As most fans know that do whatever they want’. she will be throwing a new She also said ‘I am grateful years party however the venfor the positivity by the other ue was kept a secret. During the interview with Sophie, fans’. Well, lets see how the final she slipped it out whether it official music video turns out. was unintentional or not, that

grateful positivity

the party will be held on a boat! Imagine! A boat party! Plus, the guest list is also revealed. She said ‘...obviously my good old pop friends will be there’ however this is still misguiding as no names are given. I guess this will be kept a surprise unless if someone from the guest list decides to let it out by tweeting it. Ryder who was planning the party with Sophie before the break up tweeted ‘hope the boat sinks like Titanic’. Ryder obviously still hasn’t recovered from the break up. All there is now to wait for is the pictures in the next year to see her party and who was there. Lets hope the party goes to plan and makes a good start to the year 2013.
