Anastacia claims she has to work harder because there are fewer music shows on television

Anastacia has to work harder because there are fewer music shows on TV.

The singer is set to release a new album after four years out of the spotlight and is finding it increasingly difficult to promote her material.

She said: "I think it's weird that all the big music shows on TV in every country have gone. It feels like a new world in many respects.

"It means I'm promoting more than ever and like any industry right now you have to work harder for your money.”

The 40-year-old star also praised Amy Winehouse, saying she sees some of herself in the troubled singer.

She added to Britain's Daily Star newspaper: "Amy Winehouse is on my radar. Not necessarily her lifestyle but I admire her sound and writing. She's definitely mixing it up and her voice is amazing.”

As well as Amy, the American singer is a fan of another British talent - Leona Lewis.

She said: "Leona's adorable and she's from Hackney in London - the same hometown as my husband.

"You'll often find me there visiting the family. It's a great place but I don't think the queen visits it enough.”


The big-voiced, chart-topping American singer performs her pop, R&B and soul hits after her stint on Strictly Come Dancing.
