Kate Nash won't "show my body to sell music"
Kate Nash has revealed that she's proud not to have bowed to the pressures of fame and exploited herself to further her career.
Speaking out about the influx of female music stars who constantly bare flesh in order to sell records, she explained that "intelligence is a factor as well":
"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 understands that it's unusual to be one of the few who refuse to effectively exchange their skin for album sales, and wants other people to embrace the fact that it doesn't have to be that way:
"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."
