Emeli Sande On Being Criticised As Over-Exposed: "It's A Bit Unfair!"

19 February 2013, 13:28

The 'Next To Me' singer says she has worked hard for all of her success in the music industry.

Emeli Sande says she feels criticism that she has been overexposed in the past year is "a bit unfair" and says she doesn't see the comments as a negative.

The Scottish singer-songwriter, who has achieved huge sales of her debut album 'Our Version Of Events' as well as becoming a fixture at awards shows, says she hasn't been "forcing" herself on people, despite the criticism.

"I feel like it's a bit unfair," Emeli told The Sun this week. "I actually haven't done that much, but it's just what I have done have been huge events.

"If I was at the MOBOs, it was because I was nominated, or if I performed at something, it's because I was asked," the 'My Kind Of Love' singer explained. "It's not like I was forcing myself on anyone.

"Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but I worked so hard to get any exposure at all, so I don't see that as a negative."

"People who were critical of that weren't there when you're working your a** off trying to get a record, and when you're trying to get someone to listen.

"They don't know how that feels," she added. "So I take it as a positive. It's all about getting your music our there and, who knows, I might not get that kind of exposure next year, or ever!"
