X Factor runner up Rebecca Ferguson has admitted that when she fist shot to fame last year she had to toughen up to survive the music career!
Talking to the Daily Star the singer has said:
“I can’t watch my first audition because it makes me too upset. I just think it is really sad. I look at myself and don’t recognise myself. I do think fame and fortune changes people.
“I have had to change because the girl in that audition wouldn’t survive in the music industry. Little sweet Becki who loves everyone and who thinks the best of everyone wouldn’t survive. I have had to toughen up a lot, so when I look at that I feel really sad.”
“My advice is, if you are going to go on X Factor you have to know who you are as an artist. A lot of people go on, get told what to do, make a fool of themselves and then blame someone else.
“When I went on there I was asked to sing things and I used to say ‘no way’. You have to know who you are as an artist. If you are not happy with the song, don’t sing it. Simple as that – no one forces you to do it.”
If you was watching tonight’s X Factor you would have seen the singer walk back on the stage that shot her to fame to perform her hit song Backtrack.
