Kate Nash's fame hate
Kate Nash hates being a celebrity.
The 20-year-old British singer, who was catapulted into the limelight by the phenomenal success of hit single 'Foundations' and debut album 'Made of Bricks', loves being a musician but feels embarrassed by the accompanying fame.
She said: "I can't knock it really - I've chosen to be a musician because I love it. But I feel really uncomfortable with the whole 'showbiz party' thing. It's just not my scene and it can be intimidating.
"I'll be in a room full of people name-dropping and schmoozing and I think, 'This is doing my head in.' I feel embarrassed when people are impressed by it all, especially when they're older than me. It's easy to get sucked in. But I'm learning to cope with it and I constantly remind myself that it's not real."
Kate - who was named Best British Female at this year's BRIT Awards - insists she stays grounded by seeing her family and close friends as much as possible.
She added to Britain's Cosmopolitan magazine: "I love sitting at home, watching 'The Simpsons' and bickering with my friends and my sisters. I love the excitement of being away on tour, but getting back home helps me hold onto normality. I often sit around wishing I was down the pub with my friends, talking about things that inspire me."
