Olly Murs is worried for young stars facing temptation
Speaking to the Daily Star newspaper, he used Frankie Cocozza as an example and explained that being in the public eye means that certain things will be offered to you and at times it will be difficult to say no:
"I know what the industry is like with the drinking and the drugs. No-one’s ever forced anything on me but I’ve been offered drugs in clubs and said: ‘It’s not my thing.’ I’ve never been interested in going out in London and getting involved in that sort of life."
“Frankie came in at a young age and wanted to try new things, which is great, but you’ve got to be responsible for your actions.”
Luckily for Murs, the path to success has always been paved with hard work and motivation so he's been able to steer clear of excessive partying and he only hopes the next wave of young stars will do the same:
"I’d been a bit of a wild child as a kid and had been out and had my fun before I went on the show. As I got older coming into this I was more focused on my job and career and knew I wanted to earn money and be professional in music. I’m still ambitious and want to keep driving.”
