Since we last heard from her, Natasha Bedingfield has been off charming the States. 'Love Like This', an irrepressibly sunny pop song featuring a cameo from Jamaican rapper Sean Kingston, became a Billboard Hot 100 smash, while her What's your new single, 'Love Like This', about?"It's a song about someone who's been there all your life and has always loved you, but you've never noticed it until now.
My song 'Unwritten' did really well in the States and it just kept snowballing from there.That song is still getting played on the radio and being used in [advertising] campaigns.As an artist, that's the kind of hit you want."Your US album, .Was it hard deciding which songs to scrap for the American release?"Yeah, that moment where you've got to decide which songs to use is always difficult.

That's a healthy artist-label relationship, because you don't just want 'yes people' around you.We talk about it, and I don't normally end up with something I'm unhappy with."You recently cancelled a UK tour to make way for promotional commitments in the US, and then you were accused of "turning your back" on your British fans. "I never want people to feel like that because I really appreciate all the support the fans have given me.Even when I went to America, most of my fans carried on going online, checking what I was up to, posting pictures and being excited with me. I think about them and do video blogs while I'm away to try and keep them in the loop with what's going on.It really was hard to cancel those gigs, but it was just one of those things that I couldn't not do.The record was doing so well in the States that I felt that I was representing them, the people who'd supported me [over there]."You've written on your blog that you've been having a few troubles with cameras... What I wrote is that you've got to be careful with the camera, because it can take over your life if you're not careful. The example I gave is a story where I was talking to my alarm clock in my sleep - I was doing an interview in my sleep!
