Brit Bedingfield embraces U.S.

The Fourth of July keeps convincing Brits to liberate to America.

“It’s the day I started dating my (American) husband” in 2006, says British pop star Natasha Bedingfield, singer of “Pocketful of Sunshine” and “I Bruise Easily.”

Now every day, husband-businessman Matthew Robinson injects her with more of his America.

“You rub off on each other,” she says. “He’s teaching me golf. We’ve been sailing together. I smoke cigars sometimes. I even watch UFC.”

She once told People magazine, “Romance is female Viagra.” she still feels that way and gets “turned on by little things,” from flowers to movies.

Another man in her life is Jamie Foxx but not romantically. He sings on her new single, “Weightless.” they met during a performance for the Obamas.

“It was right in the Obamas’ living room, with them 3 feet away!” she says. “It was absolutely mind-blowing.”

If you see her Sunday at House of Blues expect real singing, not Auto-Tuned fakiness.

The show can’t be as liberated as her Palm Springs gig for a lesbian festival, where she considered competing in an oil-wrestling contest but chickened out.

“I was too worried of getting the oil out of my hair,” she says. “It was the sexiest show I’ve ever done. … I feel very free around women.”
