Natasha Bedingfield: “I feel so much sexier since having a baby”

What do you have stashed away in your loft? For our podcast, Trash In The Attic, we ask a musician to go rummaging around in the depths of their loft, to find some hidden gems from their past: stuff with a really good story. Bringing their box of junk to the podcast, we hear the stories behind these lost – and often very strange – items.


Natasha Bedingfield needs little introduction. Her debut single ‘Unwritten’ was a worldwide smash, perfectly encapsulating the upbeat vibe of the early noughties and making Natasha a global star. Over the next fifteen years, she went on to sell over ten million records, working as as songwriter for others as well as making her own music: a career that’s seen her brush shoulders with presidents, athletes, musical legends and the odd big yellow bird.

For this week’s episode of Trash In The Attic, Natasha has had a rummage around in her loft to dig out some of her most prized possessions.

Our conversation sees us to talk about motherhood, the pressures of the industry on young women, what it’s like to be on Serena Williams’ Sports Day team and why on earth Bobby Kennedy Jr. gifted her a raccoon’s penis. Plus, lots more meandering chat through the many different paths of Natasha’s fascinating career.
