British singer Pixie Lott wants to scrap social networking websites, because she's adamant they've ruined the glamour and mystery of fame.

The singer is a frequent user of Twitter and has more than a million ';friends' on Facebook, but she insists modern-day celebrities are no longer "proper stars" because their life is an open book online.

Lott tells Britain's Live magazine, "Maybe we should get rid of social networking. We don't have proper stars any more and things like Twitter are partly to blame. I long for the old days of Marilyn Monroe and Audrey Hepburn, stars who had real glamour and mystique.

"We only knew so much about their lives, the rest was a mystery. They'd often come out with these wonderful quotes – you wouldn't be reading their Twitter updates every two minutes. They never looked ordinary – and they would never be photographed jogging in the park.

"That's how stars should be. Having said that, my fans would be really upset if I stopped tweeting. So I guess a loss of mystique is the price I've had to pay."

What do you think about social networking? Do you like your favorite stars to have a bit of mystery to them, or do you like knowing what they do?
