Bush: 'Recluse? I'm Just A Devoted Mum'

Iconic singer KATE BUSH has rubbished reports she has been a recluse - she simply wanted to spend time with her beloved son instead of in the public glare.

The KING OF THE MOUNTAIN hitmaker's life was turned around by motherhood when she gave birth to BERTIE in 1999, and she was determined to put work on hold to give him a magical childhood.

She says, "I love being with him, he's a lovely little boy, and he won't be little for very long.

"I felt my work could wait, whereas his growing-up process couldn't.

"What was difficult was trying to fit the album in around bringing up a child.

"I didn't want anything to interfere with that process. I wanted to give as much time as I possibly could to my son."
