The Ting Tings say they have "forgotten how to be normal" since becoming pop stars
The Ting Tings have "forgotten how to be normal".
The duo - Katie White and Jules DeMartino - admit their sudden success and recent world tour have left them so shocked and confused, they are struggling to deal with everyday life.
Jules said: "I think we've forgotten how to be normal.
"We do so much work - we do the music, the artwork and everything, and then touring on top of that. It's too much. You end up sleeping four hours a night."
The 'That's Not My Name' hitmakers - who performed with Estelle at the BRIT Awards on Wednesday (18.02.09) - are also surprised at how much their fan base has changed over the last year.
Katie said: "We're getting toddlers at our shows now. We used to get arty types, then normal mainstream people. Now it's toddlers."
Jules added: "It used to be real indie-types, but now it's a wider demographic. We came out of a concert in New York and this Hells Angel comes up to the bus and goes, 'Ting Tings? You guys f***ing rock'."
