Charlotte Church: 'I hated 'Crazy Chick' because it meant nothing'

Singer Charlotte Church has admitted that she "hated" her 2005 hit 'Crazy Chick' because it was forced by her label and meant nothing to her.

The talented vocalist recently released a brand new EP entitled 'O N E' and explained to Digital Spy that she has more creative control now that she understands the industry more fully because she's learned hard lessons over the years:

"I'm more stronger in my conviction of what I want to do. When you're first trying to write, people tell you, 'That's no good, it's pretty s**t really'. It knocks you for six so you generally tend to go along with it."

"That was the case with 'Crazy Chick'. I presented an album that I had been writing with different people when I was 16/17, to which the record company said, 'It's alright, it's not great, so we'll slap a couple of singles on it and get it out'. I was furious and then it was 'Crazy Chick' and this, that and the other - so I hated that song from its conception."

She added that she didn't like how her last album was full of 'throwaway pop', which she won't ever go back to: "I understood it was a pop hit, but I hated it because it didn't mean anything - I don't think it helped anyone with their emotional problems - and it was just a bit of throwaway pop, which I wasn't about."
