LONDON - Soul singer Duffy has revealed that she struggled to cope with instant fame and felt miserable and lonely.
The Welsh star shot to instant fame after scoring a hit with her debut track Mercy. She admits couldn’t cope with her gruelling schedule and felt homesick while travelling around the world.
“I love my music and performing but some of the other demands terrified me. I am just a normal girl from Wales and always will be,” thesun.co.uk quoted her as saying.
“I locked myself in my room and cried and I’m not usually that kind of girl. I am quite tough and can cope with almost anything but that time was horrible.
I just wanted my mum with me. I remember feeling as though things were going to fall apart. I don’t know if it was borderline breakdown — but it was a hard time,” she added.
