Eliza Doolittle is a huge Radiohead fan.

The British 'Same Genes' singer said that because she is best known for upbeat, jaunty pop songs, most people don't realise how varied her musical tastes are, and that she is a huge fan of Radiohead - who have moved further and further from any traces of a pop sound in their music in recent years.

Eliza said: "I love Radiohead, which most people don't expect, and I listen to everything from Stevie Wonder to Steely Dan, Carole King, The Beach Boys, The Kinks, Beyonce Knowles, Vampire Weekend, The Beatles, Joni Mitchel, Burt Bacarach, and Paul Simon."

The singer also said that while she remains fairly fearless herself and isn't self conscious about how she acts, her mother sometimes embarrasses her.

She added: "I never have regrets! What's the point?! I do embarrassing things all the time but I don't really get embarrassed. It's like I'm unaware of my embarrassing things. My mum sometimes embarrasses me. But I think I'm pretty open about most things, I can't think of any secrets."
