Charli XCX plots world domination

Charli XCX wants to take over the world.

The 'Boom Clap' hitmaker - who has worked with the likes of Iggy Azalea, Rita Ora and Gwen Stefani - is keen to keep pushing boundaries in her own career, as well as penning pop hits for other artists.

Asked what the future holds, she said: "I just want to be continuously making killer songs and mind-blowing videos, as well as writing for other artists.

"I want to change the musical landscape. I think the overall plan is to take over the world. That's basically it."

The 22-year-old singer has been performing since she was 14 years old and thinks she "deserves" her global success because she has worked so hard

She said: "Now that it's here, I feel like I really deserve it. I know how this world works now, and I'm not going to let people walk all over me.

"I feel blessed to be in this position and I've made so many great relationships."

The 'Fancy' star credits Swedish pop star Robyn with giving her the best piece of career advice she has heard.

She told Grazia magazine: "We'd just had this epic dance-off in Australia, she is an insane dancer, and I was feeling a bit down and insecure.

"She said, 'You've just gotta be yourself and be nice to everybody because that's why people think you're cool.' "
