'Grace' singer Will Young has revealed he "feels like a man" after putting on weight
Will Young "feels like a man" after putting on weight.
The 'Grace' singer has piled on the pounds after over-indulging on his favourite treats and alcohol but is reluctant to diet because he enjoys eating and drinking too much.
He said: "I look bigger than I used to but I feel like a man so I quite like it. I'd like to lose a bit off my tummy but that would mean I'd have to stop drinking beer. "Maybe I could eat less but I'm not very good at that either so I'm a bit of a c**p pop star in that sense."
Despite enjoying consuming alcohol, Will says he is conscious of how much he drinks because there is a history of alcoholism in his family.
He added: "I drink far too much. I don't have a problem but I do have to keep an eye on it because alcoholism runs in my family. I always check in that I'm not too dependent on it and take a week out.
"I'm actually quite shy so I need a drink sometimes to settle me before I go to a party.
"There was a time when I had to have a drink to get beyond the attention thing otherwise I'd freak out."
