NT NEWS. 21 P U B : NTNE-WS-DA-TE:6-NGE:21 CO-LO-R: C-M Y-K INFORMATION ROADSHOW www.ntstate7.com.au #3Isnt the Northern Territory population too small for Statehood? The Northern Territorys population is over 220 000. When Tasmania and Western Australia became States in 1901 they had smaller populations than the Territory has now. There are member countries of the European Union with small populations (Malta and Luxembourg have just over 400 000 each while Germany has over 82 million people) any they are partner countries in a single union, like the Territory should be a partner State in a single country.

And she has had to, after copping bouts of criticism for everything from the sound of her album, through to the sleazy look of her new filmclip, and even a comment she wrote on Twitter about going goose hunting with her boyfriend Themeli Magriplis. A lot of people dont want you to change, she told the NT News. When I was over (in the USA) I was really growing. I really got to find me. Far from slow her down or devastate her, Mauboy revealed she takes it on board and in most cases laughs. A lot of people just hated the filmclip to Get Em Girls, she said. It was a real eye-opener. It was entertaining I almost had to laugh. Times have certainly changed for the teenager who first made national headlines when she was told to lose her jelly-belly on Australian Idol. And as has so often been the case in the realm of reality stardom, placing second is a blessing in disguise. But despite splitting her time between some of the most happening parts of the globe, there is still a Territory girl underneath who is gasping at where she has landed. And she writes it into her music. The title song of her recently launched album Get Em Girls she described as an eyes-open reflection of how much her life has changed. Its about seeing yourself in the newspaper, she said. I wasnt long off Idol when it all changed. And her way of combating the stiletto-clad dizzying heights of her glamorous yet hard-working life in Sydney, is to come home. It is like that, she said. I come home to Darwin. Everyday wear is a sing let, shorts, and thongs. Now its going out and wearing heels I like the contrast. But while most of the criticism slides off like water on a ducks back, it was geese that landed her in maybe her biggest career dilemma to date. A Twitter posting about being goose hunting in Darwin with her boyfriend saw her slammed by media heavies and fans alike. It was really crazy, she said. I was a little bit scared. Radio identity Jackie O lashed out following the post, and before deleting the original posting, there was a barrage of vicious taunts. But Mauboy stood by the Territory tradition she said she had grown up with, and didnt want to offend anyone. I was hurt that people didnt get my culture, she said. For now, Mauboy said she was excited to see the reaction of her second album. And following the doubleplatinum Been Waiting, there are high hopes for the collection. I think I just really want people to listen, she said, And see the change. Youve already seen Get Em Girls there is a big change. And Mauboy warned her critics that there are more changes to come. Im growing, she said. Every album, you will see a different change. Get EmGirls is on sale now.
