Abba Star Scotches Garbo Comparisons

Former ABBA singer AGNETHA FALTSKOG has blasted reports she's a reclusive star in the mould of GRETA GARBO.

The WATERLOO singer is trying to change the public's perception of her as lonely and paranoid, insisting she's been labelled that way simply because she has chosen to stay out of the limelight.

Faltskog says, "I'm the same person that I've always been - nice, normal, down-to-earth and easily stressed. The Greta Garbo picture was created as a punishment because I don't show myself enough.

"It can be tough since that image isn't right and so I have to try and correct it and show how I really am."

However, despite extensive therapy and hypnosis, Falyskog has failed to overcome her fear of flying - and she has not been on a plane for 15 years.

Faltskog was the only Abba member not to attend the fifth anniversary performance of their musical MAMMA MIA! in London last year (04).
