Kate Nash wouldn't strip for success
Kate Nash would never strip off to sell records.
The 23-year-old singer would never "show her body" to promote her image, claiming being a female pop star with opinions is enough to leave the world "freaked out".
She said: "I wouldn't show my body to sell music, but I am very opinionated and passionate about what I do. I'm a musician. I'm not a stripper or a model.
"But I don't think that makes me the girl next door. It is riskier not to take your kit off and have opinions and be smart and powerful. The world feels freaked out by that."
The 'Foundations' hitmaker - who released her second album 'My Best Friend Is You' last year - believes getting naked to promote herself would have a negative impact on young girls who listen to her music.
She added: "It's a shame that 14-year-old girls are made to think they have to be sexy, thin, tanned and blonde to get a boyfriend.
"Pop stars can still be attractive and sexy without being a pin-up, blow-up doll. Intelligence is a factor as well."Posted on 8 Apr 2011 16:15 to category : Music News
