Charli XCX: Midnight Chats – Episode 61

What they're really talking about in LA right now – sprouts

Charli XCX started playing raves when she was 14. Twelve years later and she’s worked with everyone from PC Music and Mykki Blanco to Blondie and Simon Le Bon, splitting her time pretty equally between London and LA, where she enjoys the mindless activity of REALLY talking about restaurants.

I know all of this thanks to this brief encounter with her for episode 60 of the podcast. It’s a short one, but we managed to get a lot in before Charli bolted for Radio 1.
