John­son uses neb­u­lizer to keep voice in shape

Kuwait Times - - LIFESTYLE -

Louisa John­son has to use a neb­u­lizer on tour to keep her voice in shape. The 'X Fac­tor' win­ner had to ex­plain the de­vice she has, which con­sists of hot salt wa­ter, as it looked like she was us­ing a va­p­ing de­vice in­stead of a cig­a­rette back­stage at Brighton's Pride fes­ti­val - the big­gest cel­e­bra­tion for the LGBT com­mu­nity - over the week­end. How­ever, it turned it out she was just keep­ing her voice in­tact. The 19-year-old beauty told the Daily Star news­pa­per: "I have a neb­u­lizer that looks like a vape cig­a­rette. "But it's ac­tu­ally hot wa­ter and salt wa­ter and when you breathe in it turns into steam for my voice." The 'So Good' hit­maker knows how im­por­tant it is to keep her voice in check af­ter she was put on "vo­cal rest" days be­fore UK TV tal­ent show's fi­nal, which she went on to win in 2015. And Louisa will cer­tainly need her voice to be in tip-top con­di­tion with the amount of col­lab­o­ra­tions she'd like to do. She wants to fol­low in the foot­steps of her pal Olly Murs and col­lab­o­rate with Paul Weller. The 58-year-old rocker penned the track 'Let Me In' for the 33-year-old hunk's 2014 LP 'Never Been Bet­ter' and Louisa - who did 'Un­pre­dictable' with Olly this year - re­cently re­vealed she is keen to setup a duet with the 'Mod­fa­ther' and former Jam front­man. Speak­ing ex­clu­sively to BANG Show­biz, she said: "I re­ally love Paul Weller, I didn't know that Paul Weller wrote a song for Olly Murs, I might have to give him a ring." The 'Best Be­hav­ior' hit­maker has a sur­pris­ingly eclec­tic taste in mu­sic and would also like to dab­ble in rap with dreams of team­ing up with hip-hop icon Eminem. She said: "I re­ally love Eminem, he's like my fa­vorite artist. My love of Eminem comes from my dad, he al­ways would be lis­ten­ing to his songs and al­bums when we'd be driv­ing around, you just pick these things up. I have a re­ally ran­dom love of dif­fer­ent mu­sic from like garage to Eminem, peo­ple don't know how I like these songs."
