Example faces dark temptations regularly
UK urban star Example has spoken out about the dark side of his success and admits that he's regularly tempted by "partying, drugs and alcohol".
The 'Unorthodox' singer has enjoyed fantastic popularity in the UK with his unique sound, but explains to the Daily Star newspaper that while there are definitely lots of good sides to being famous it's easy to be led astray:
"As I get more famous, I find I am facing certain problems and demons. For me it’s temptation – for women and partying, drugs and alcohol and staying out late."
"It probably happens every couple of weeks. Not that I ever give in to it ... well most of the time I don’t."
Talking about his interests outside of music, he asserts that while they keep him entertained they don't provide the best songwriting material:
"My favourite things to do when I’m not working are going to the gym, cinema and nice restaurants. But who wants an album about someone going to the gym and Pizza Express?”
