Dappy was so focused on recording debut solo album 'Bad Intentions' he didn't eat or sleep properly for months
Dappy only ate once a day while recording 'Bad Intentions'.
The 'No Regrets' rapper was so focused on making his debut solo album, he didn't eat or sleep properly for months.
He said: "I could've kept going adding to the album but when I lost all the weight in my face and my body I thought 'I got to stop.
"My metabolism was running crazy. We was sleeping at eight in the morning and waking up at six in the afternoon.
"Eating once a day - so you can imagine four months of that. I'm only just coming round to normal life again now."
Dappy - real name Costadinos Contostavlos - also said he will be "devastated" if all his efforts don't pay off with him scoring a number one record in his native UK on Sunday (28.10.12).
He told the Daily Star newspaper: "If it doesn't go to number one I will be devastated. I'm going to curl up in a ball and cry.
"If I don't go number one what am I gonna do? It's over. Obviously I got Taylor Swift and Lawson also releasing albums and I'm s**t-scared if I tell you the truth.
"I got a dream to fulfil and kids to feed."
