Former X Factor finalist Amelia Lily has revealed that she was so nervous about the release of her debut single You Bring Me Joy – which was released in August last year – that she threw up!
Speaking to MTV, Amelia said, “It struck midnight and You Bring Me Joy had just been released on iTunes and I was just watching it climb the charts and I threw up.
“There was so much adrenaline and so much going on, I was so excited… I just threw up!
“I was like ‘I’m going to be sick’, and everyone was like ‘no no it’s alright’, and then I threw up.”
Amelia made the revelation while discussing her debut album Be A Fighter – which goes on general release on May 20 – and her new single, Party Over.
Of the album’s title, she said, “I actually chose the album title is because I wanted to inspire people to chase their dreams…
“And you do have to fight for your dreams, and you know, I had to fight for mine.
“You can’t just sit back in a chair and wait for it to come to you, you have to go out there and go for it.
“But my album is really diverse, and I’m really excited for people to hear it.
“The album has got a country side to it, and a little bit more heartfelt as well, and there’s a song on the album – which is one of my favourites – and it’s called The Hills…
“It’s probably the most personal to me, so it’s quite a versatile album.”
She continued, “I haven’t really had any influences for this album, but I do have obviously idols in the music industry, Katy Perry, Pink, Rihanna…
“For the first album, you need to just be you and introduce yourself to the public as who you are and what you’ve come up with in the studio.
“That’s probably why I’m really proud of it.”
You can see Amelia on ‘Amelia Lily: MTV Live’ today at 12 noon, but for now, here’s a look at Party Over…
