Kiesza: 'Being a pop star is harder than being in the Navy'

'Hideaway' hitmaker Kiesza has revealed that trying to carve out a career as a singer is harder than her years in the Navy. 

She joined Royal Canadian Navy with her brother when she was just a teenager and went onto become a Naval Communicator, but speaking to London's Time Out magazine, the songstress explained that she strongly believes a music career is tougher because everything is so intangible and temporary:

"A pop star. In the Navy, the path is paved for you. Your job is to be a soldier and fit in. As long as you stick to your place, it's actually really easy."

Back in the Summer, Kiesza teased that Bajan beauty Rihanna has recorded a few of the songs she wrote although she didn't confirm if they will make her new album: "So far people have been recording a lot of the music, Rihanna recorded two or three of my songs. Whether they will end up on the album, I don't know."

"When I started I did the whole writing for an artist, but I've stopped doing that. I think it takes away from my writing. The one that Rihanna has cut is one that I never in a million years expected her to pick out, so it was super interesting. It just shows that people want to evolve and try new things."
