THIS IS THE VERONICAS ARTICLE
FROM TV HITS!!
WHO ARE THESE TWO HOT-LOOKIN' BIRDS?
And where did they come from? Well, The Veronicas are identical twins from Australia, who've
been livin in the US for a year now recording and rehearsing their butts off to be The Next Big Thing!
"It's pretty crazy," says Lisa. " We were just two girls from Brisbane
doing our own thing- then we got signed, moved to L.A. and started going to recording sessions and meeting make-up artists,
stylists....it's a lot of hard work, but it's a dream come true!"
"We've also been all around the world," adds Jess. " We got to go onn
a big songwriting trip across Sweden, London,, Canada, America.. we wrote about 60 songs!"
But it's not all glamour and excitement on the long road to pop stardom. "We had to do
a lot of performances to a lot of serious- looking record company people in boardrooms," says Lisa. " But having my sister
with me the whole time is just the best- I seriously would have it no other way! Going solo was just never an option for either
"We'd be to scared to do it on our own!" says Jess.
The twins live together in a big old house with five boys- so is the house covered in smelly socks or what? " No the boys
are really sweet," says Jess. " We're always having parties and wondering whether the house is haunted or not it's pretty
spooky in there sometimes!"
And speaking of parties, the girls are getting some invites that even Video Hits are getting jealous of! "Last night we
went to our neighbour's party and the whole cast of The OC were there," says Jess. " And the other night we went to Elijah
Wood's house and i got so starstruck! And he hugged me - it was crazy."
So what's it like living and working with your sister 24/7 anyway?
" People ask us things like that all the time," laughs Lisa, "and it's funny coz we've never never known anything different
from being together all the time! We know people are gonna pay attention to the fact we are twins now that we are starting
out but hopefully people will love us just as much for our music- and the 'double trouble' jokes will be over!"
This is an interview from Dolly with Indiana Evans!
Dolly: How did you get your big break?

i had a chance to audition for Home And Away.
Dolly: Do you have any words of wisdom to crack the industry?
Indi: My advice would be to find a really good agent, have plenty
of patience and be really determined. Absolutely no giving up!!!!!!

Indi: I get to meet some really cool people from the industry, andget
invited to some really cool parties! I also like being recognised for something that i love doing- acting.

Indi: I was recently given a really nice top from fashionassasin and
have been given some pretty cool jewellry form diva.
Dolly: what's going to be your next big fashion purchase?

Dolly: Is there something that is always in your bag?
Indi: I love Lancome juicy tubes lip gloss. Mine is always, always
in my bag.
