The Bum’s Rush

by | 24th, May 2004

‘WHEN Lisa Scott-Lee announced her ambition to become the English Kylie a year or so ago, she could hardly have dreamt how successful she would be.

Bottom of the pops

In fact, her bum proved to be such a hit with fans and industry insiders alike that it wasn’t long before her record company decided that was the part of her body it most wanted to see.

And so it was that a few months ago they asked to see the back of her – permanently.

Unfortunately, that means that we will never get to hear the album to the creation of which Lisa devoted a year and a half of her life.

‘It’s a shame, but I’m not giving up,’ the ex-Steps singer tells OK! as she shows them round the Berkshire home she shares with fiancé Johnny Shentall.

‘I think the record company made a bad business mistake because I’ve got a lot to give and I’ve got a genuine love and enthusiasm for what I do.’

Johnny, who knows a bit about the subject after being a member of not one but two failed bands (Boom! And Hear’Say), agrees.

‘They don’t know what they’re doing,’ he says.

And we have to say we agree with Johnny on this – there really is no substitute for love and enthusiasm, especially when it is allied to a great bottom.

It is little wonder that we hear that another record company is already sniffing around, ready to catapult Lisa to a position at the top of the UK music industry where she belongs.

And where Lisa leads, Johnny follows – news is that he has got an agent and it is now just a matter of time before he too is back in the saddle, so to speak.

‘There’s a lot of talented people out there who haven’t had one record deal,’ Lisa reminds us, ‘and Johnny’s had two.

‘He looks good, he sings, he dances and he acts and that’s why I fell for him.

‘I think it’s important to focus on all the good things that happened, playing on Top Of The Pops and CD:UK and having a No.6 and No.11 hit.’

Highlights enough, we’re sure you would agree, for any career…’
