Olly Murs admits he doesn’t consider himself a pop star
Olly Murs has admitted that he still doesn’t think of himself as a pop star.
The 28-year-old, who has scored three UK number one singles since finishing runner-up on the 2009 series of The X-Factor, told Rolling Stone magazine that he finds his success difficult to believe:
"I feel like Olly Murs from Essex, and I still live here with my parents and my friends and I stay home as much as I can.
"I still think I'm learning the trade and learning all the time and I don't feel like I've reached my peak and where I can get to. So yeah, I don't think of myself as a pop star just yet – but I'm getting there."
The ‘Heart Skips A Beat’ singer, who is set to release his second album, 'In Case You Didn’t Know,' in the US later this year, went on to add that he hasn’t changed since his rise to fame:
"I think with me, what I say to fans is, whatever you seen in music videos and interviews, what you see is what you get with me.
“There's no hidden agenda. I'm just the crooked guy that you see in the videos and the interviews. I'm no different. I'm just normal – a normal kind of guy."
