I am a useless pop star: Katie White

Highlight Story

Ting Tings singer Katie White says she isn't good at being a pop star and can't work it when she is at showbiz events. The 'Hang it Up' hitmaker is disillusioned with being labelled a pop artist because she doesn't feel as though she fits in with the stereotypical image of other mainstream artists, reported Femalefirst online.

"We've been down all these red carpets and stood next to these girls who are, like, pop stars. They work it so well, but I'm just totally useless," she said. White's bandmate Jules de Martino, who completes the group feels this is reflected in their sound too, as they have a different approach to making records to most other pop acts, and they are reluctant to become too commercial.

"Most pop bands aren't as DIY as us, and every time we get something that's really polished we wreck it. Every time we cross that line into pure pop we get frightened," he said. The Ting Tings second album, Sounds from Noweheresville will be released in February 2012.
