BRITS 2008: Interview with Leona Lewis

Should Mariah be scared? Get ready, drag queens: there’s a new multi-racial, multi-octave songbird storming American shores. Leona Lewis‘s new album will be released stateside next month, and she already has the poise and the confidence to battle the major divas.

While not British himself - he was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri - he once received inordinate hospitality in London for sharing the name of a dead but beloved EastEnders character. His Anglophilia stems from a high school love of Morrissey, whom he calls his "gateway drug" into British culture.
