Kate Miller-Heidke introducing Kate Miller-Heidke

Who better to introduce you to this exciting newcomer than Kate herself! Hear from the lovely lady, talking about how she can't stand strong smells, likes bright colours and is fascinated by documentaries about cavemen ...

I'm Kate Miller-Heidke (pronounced Hide-Key). The earliest memory of music I have is sitting in the tunnels in the park every weekend, for hours, listening to my voice bounce around the concrete.

The first record I ever owned was a tape I got for my eighth birthday. It was 'Tears On My Pillow' by Kylie Minogue. I learned every word. At age 15 I bought 'Blue' by Joni Mitchell, and it changed my life.

My first band, when I was 17, had three flautists in it — we broke up for obvious reasons. I then had a brief stint playing keyboards in the Pete Murray band (before he was famous). After that I had another band called Elsewhere which broke up and in 2003 I decided to go solo.

I lived in France for a year after school and at one time spoke great French. I'm very attached to my current band members. I met Keir, my guitarist and creative collaborator, in 2002 when we were pitted against each other in a battle of the bands, judged using a clap-o-meter.

I love songwriting. I love Fleetwood Mac and Queen. One of my favourite places is the Woodford Folk Festival. I can't stand strong smells. I wish I had my own home studio. I'm happiest when I'm with Keir. I am fascinated by documentaries about cavemen. I like bright colours. I love the freedom that I have in my life and my music.

Little Eve is my debut full length album. I was going to call it "Fate Thriller-Spiky" but reconsidered. I've sold lots of both of my independent EPs, mostly straight after gigs. The band and I have played dusty festivals, noisy pubs, gorgeous little theatres and ugly little theatres all over Australia.

Here's my favourite review I've ever received: 'She began to sing and I realised Alice had drunk a little too much of the wrong potion and flown completely off her rocker … she drives from a full soprano level to a wry and sneering punk position … A promising breath of fresh air to anyone willing to loosen a few screws for the experience'. (Drum Media)

I find it hard to describe my music with words. You'll just have to listen. The freedom to record an album the way I hear my music in my head has been an incredible experience. I took advantage of the fact that a studio recording can do things that can't be done live. I completely love the outcome. It shits all over my EPs.

Shake it off, Bey-Swizzle! Taylor Swift and Beyonce caught singing to each other at Justin Timberlake show MusicFIX Blog by Adam Bub Dec 15 2014 6:55PM

Now here's one celeb inner circle we'd love to be in: yes, that's Taylor Swift and Beyonce just having a totally casual singalong at Justin Timberlake's New York concert on Sunday night. Nothing to see here, right? Er, wrong!

Watch the above footage caught by fans on Instagram... complete with Tay-Tay's signature overenthusiastic, wide-eyed singing face. #LOVE.

"Bey-Swizzle", as we'll call them from now on, jumped up and down and mouthed the words to 'Holy Grail' while Justin and Jay Z took the stage at the Barclays Center, Brooklyn.

Who are those other girls cutting a move with Taylor? That's US band Haim ('The Wire', 'If I Could Change Your Mind').

Just a day earlier, Beyonce and Jay Z and Justin partied with Taylor for her 25th birthday, along with other celeb guests. Get all envious with these amazing pics from the #BestBirthayEver!

WATCH: Ariana Grande 'almost died' after slipping on confetti at Jingle Ball MusicFIX Blog by Carmarlena Murdaca Dec 15 2014 8:09AM

Ariana Grande might be the most accident-prone A-lister of all time.

Just weeks after dodging a Victoria's Secret models' wings on the runway, 21-year-old Ariana's "almost died" after slipping on confetti at Z100's Jingle Ball. Watch that moment above!

Posting the snippet to social media, the pint-sized pop star tweeted: "When you slip on confetti & almost die at madison square garden." Confetti – 1; Ariana – 0.

In recent weeks, the star's been no stranger to delivering memorable moments for TheFIX. At LA's KIIS FM Jingle Ball, Ariana cosied up to boyfriend Big Sean while performing 'Big Mistake'… only days after her terrified face at the VS show inspired a bunch of hilarious memes.


This face is the best thing we've seen all year.

Oh, and we've got video of that moment below too FIXers.

This all comes off the back of rumours that she wants to be carried around like a baby when she doesn't feel like walking. Perhaps there will be a few less wing-related incidents then?

"Her new rule is that she has to be carried – literally carried like a baby when she doesn’t feel like walking," a source told In Touch Weekly. "She says she doesn’t want her precious feet to hit the floor. Everyone was stunned. Ariana is such a diva."

Want proof? Check out the pics of her Mariah Carey-esque behaviour below…
