Bush Terrified Of Fame

KATE BUSH was tempted not to release her comeback album - because she was terrified of being a celebrity again.

The reclusive WUTHERING HEIGHTS hitmaker is set to release her first record in 12 years next week (begs07NOV05).

But the disc AERIAL almost never made it to production because Bush was worried the fame and publicity would be detrimental to her music, and hated the thought of being labelled a 'celebrity'.

She says, "It's opening the door, isn't it? Because this is all about that creative focus, that quiet place.

"Being well-known is completely the enemy of this. Even more so now where you've got this sort of truly silly preoccupation with celebrities.

"Just because someone's been in an ad on TV, so what? Who gives a toss?"
