Alli Sims: I Sing Like Norah Jones
Alli Sims, Britney Spears‘ 26-year-old cousin and former personal assistant, is distancing herself from Brit‘s pop sound, claiming her sounds more like Norah Jones.
Here are some highlights form Alli‘s interview with People:
On what Britney thinks of her singing: “She heard my songs on the laptop and was like, ‘I love this song! This is you singing?’ She has always been supportive.”
On Britney as a mother: “She’s a wonderful mom and she is so hands-on. … Britney loves those babies to death. And they adore her. I love her, she’s beautiful inside and out. We’re still great friends.”
On why a cover of “On My Own” from the Les Misérables musical is on her website: “[It's] more of a filler song until I get my new stuff recorded. Honestly, we put that one up there because all the other ones I had put down in the past had a little more of a country vibe, and I do not want to go there at all.”
On why her sound isn’t like Britney’s: “I don’t dance, I’m not pop. I have a more bluesy voice, more Norah Jones-ish. I don’t want to appeal to just my age group and younger.”
