Catching up with Natasha Bedingfield 

Busy British-bred singer Natasha Bedingfield will be touting her new album, “Strip Me,” in town on her “Less Is More” tour. She also has tracked duets with Nicki Minaj, Rascal Flatts and alt-punkers Simple Plan. In the past two years, the Grammy nominee penned dozens of new numbers, some co-written by Wyclef Jean and John Legend. “Unwritten,” Bedingfield’s breakthrough, continues to be heard everywhere.

You and your longtime beau, filmmaker Matt Robinson, finally got married. But the paparazzi made it a strange ceremony, right? That was two years ago now — can you believe it? It feels like I’m still a newlywed. We tried to get married in the most private place possible, and we didn’t tell any of our friends where it was until the day before. So we were at this private house in Malibu, outside, and somehow the paparazzi found out where it was. So we got married to the sound of four helicopters circling above us in the wind.

Then you covered the royal wedding as an “Access Hollywood” correspondent, right? It was amazing. The whole of London was alive with celebration. So when they asked me to be a roving reporter, of course I took them shopping! Um, as one must.

Hadn’t you met the royal couple before? I sang at this amazing event for Prince William, and I met him and Prince Harry there. And Kate Middleton. They weren’t together at the time, but I could see that there was a chemistry between them. I thought, “Man! He’s not going to let her get away. She’s a keeper!”
