Tinie Tempah: I'm 21, single and happy
Tinie releases his debut album Disc-Overy next week, which features collaborations with Kelly Rowland and Ellie Goulding, but Tinie stressed to us that his relationship with the ladies is strictly professional.
Various press reports and online rumours have hinted that the star has recently got engaged, but Tinie laughed off those reports.
'Im currently engaged to about 3000 girls, if you believe the press, which is going to be a problem if a few weeks. Basically, I cant complain as Im loving the reaction to the music but like I say in Frisky, Im 21 young, single and having fun. So whats the strangest rumour Tinie has ever read about himself? I read that I was meant to be dating Kylie Minogue and Ive no idea why anyone would say that as shes clearly been dating her boyfriend Andres for a few years now. But shes lovely.
The Frisky star has also just got back from Stockholm, Sweden where he was filming the video for Miami to Ibiza with Swedish House Mafia. That was an incredible trip, as Stockholm is one of my favourite cities, mainly because the Swedish women are so hot! Not as hot as British girls, obviously, but hot. I dont want to say too much about the video but it has three narratives running in the video and was shot in three different locations in the world. But I dont want to tell you too much
Next month, Tinie will appear at the Mobo Awards in Liverpool and November 7th is another day Tinie has flagged up in his calendar. That just happens to be the day of the MTV Europe Music Awards in Madrid and Tinies 22nd birthday. Tinie is nominated for Best UK Act, in the same category as Ellie Goulding: Im so happy to be nominated and what with the album coming out, it just ends a perfect year for me. Im hoping that Ill be out in Madrid, but its early days just yet".
So what does Tinie want for his birthday? "To win the award ha! No, for the album to be doing well and to be around friends and family would be good enough for me.
Weve heard the album and we can confirm its pretty special. You can listen to our showbiz reporter Kevin Hughes' interview with the star below:
