hi when did you realise you wanted to work at Sugar magazine & with music? Lucy xx
Ooohhh that's a topugh one. Well I always liked Sugar and Sugarscape because it's great for teens without being patronising and talking down to them. I read the mag when I was a teen so I guess it's always been my dream job!
Do you get starstruck when you meet clebs??
I inyterviewd Jessica Szorh from Gossip Girl which is my FAVE show
Lauren what is your fav song of all time?
ssooooooooooo hard! man in the mirror by jacko, LOVE him!
when did you decide that this was the job for you?
I've always wanted to be a journo but actually trained in acting. I decided this was right for me when I got sick of hanging around with all those egos! Journalists are much cooler!
Who's the most famous person you've ever met? x
I met Will Smith last week, and am still in shock! he was amazing!
Lauren what do you do in your spare time ?
I teach drama and writing at a local school on a saturday which I love. Also enjoy seeing as many bands as poss and going to stanup comedy shows!
how did you join sugar?
I did some work experiance when I was getting my journo qualification at college and applied for a job after. I star5ted the day after my last exam so was very hectic but lucky!
Where did you train when you were training to be an actress?
Who is your favourite band/artist - mines Taylor Swift, absolutely love her!!
My fave band would have to be Pearl Jam! I've loved them since I was 14 (which was a very long time ago) and saw them live for the first time last month...was very excited to say the least!
Which celeb that you met is the biggest diva?
Mark Ronson...'nuff said!
Is there any new and upcoming groups/artists that we should look out for?? x (:
Yes! I'm loving a girl called Zarif at the mo, met her the other day and was blown away by how talented she was. Also Rubylux and Tantrums are pretty cool too!
Who was the first celeb you ever met?
The first celebs I ever met to interveiw were the Sugarbabes and they were so much fun. It was the morning after the BRITS and I was hanging out with them for ages having a right giggle!
what is your favourite song right now?
: I really like the new Christina Aguilera son You Lost Me, which is strange becuase she usally bugs me!
As im leaving year 11 next year i need to start thinking about what i want to do when im older. How would i go about working for Sugar or any other general magazine?
Apply everywhere for work experinace. it's worth it's weight in gold and if you work hard, be friendly and are passionate then you'll be remembered! One editor once told me she always replied to handwritten letters, so give that a try!
Have you got any celeb friends?
hahaha! when I was younger I worked in a cinema with Brian Belo (Big Bro winner) is he a celeb...don't answer that!
heyy, what is your job excatlyyy?xx
Along with the Sugarscape team we look for content, write and interview people for the site...it's amazing!
what qualifications do you have to determine if music is good or bad?
hahaa! Well i love and have a stack of NMEs dating from '98 that are almost taller than me! Though obviously it's all objective, there are some people who I think are terrible but keep going on and on and on....
If you could have the voice of any singer, who would it be?
haha that's a tough one... I'm going to have to be a bit old school and say Chrissie Hynde - my little sis once caught me miming to her and I still haven't lived it down!
ARE YOU THERE?!
If you didnt have this job that you have got now, what would be your second job option??
I swear I love animals more than people sometimes so probably something with them!
Whats it like gettting to meet loads of celebrities???
It's really cool. Some of them really are like normal people but others have a complete holier than thou aura, it's always interesting to see who's going to be like that!
what advice would you give to budding journalists?
I'd say a degree was important, have interests so there's always something to write about and don't be scred to hassle people until the give you experiance!
whats the best part about your job?
That I get to write all day, it's my favourite thing to do and I can't believe I get paid to do it!
What was the latest album/ single you bought???
I got myself an old jazz album. My dad's obsessed so I wanted to see what all the fuss was about!
i wanna do my summer work experience at sugar, how do i contact to get itt?
send a lovely email to email@example.com telling her why you're amazing
Do you like Justin Bieber?
I do! I think I've been brainwashed from working here! I think he genuinely is very talented and I admire anyone with the ambition to do what he did to hit the big time
do you work in weekends?
Not at Sugar but I do teach on a saturday!
what time do you have to wake up for work?
7am because I'm watching the repeats of 90210!
so do you get told what to do in sugar?
Yes, but we have a lot of freedom as well which is cool
do the questions have to be about music?
Do you have any siblings? x
What tips would you give to budding jounalists?
Get work experiance (to see if you actually want to do it) then a degree and be persistant!
Hi Lauren, what's your education/career/experience background?
Hi Natalie, I have a degree in drama and then decided I wanted to be a journalist so did a post grad NTCJ in journalism but only after a year of travelling!

What is the best part of working in music
What is the best part of working in music
laurened: hearing about new bands and artists first. oh and meeting them!
How are you and how do you flirt with people I need advice tbh
that's a tough one. I'd say just be yourself especially when everyone around you is acting fake. Even if you think you're not the coolest or the best at flirting boys worth your time will appreciate you being natural!
do you know anything about Avril Lavigne's upcoming album?
word on the grapevine is that it's going to be amazing...I wonder if it'll be inspired by Brody?!
What do you think of miley Cyruses new album? I love every rose has its thorn x
It's very different and I'm glad she changed her sound, just not too sure about her new look!
Pearl Jam... that's not very sugarscape.
no but I love them anyway!
