Welsh singer Duffy almost quit the music industry after releasing her debut album because life had become "so complicated" following her speedy rise to stardom.
The 26 year old catapulted into the spotlight after Rockferry hit stores in 2008, leading to her winning a BRIT award last year. Duffy struggled to deal with fame and came close to turning her back on her career, but she decided instead to make a comeback after a short hiatus.
She tells Britain's Daily Express, "I thought about walking away. Not because I thought I'd done it all. It's just that I missed the simple things. Life had got so complicated, I needed some time to step back and reflect. At the end of that whole cycle I needed to be reminded of what I was here to do."
