Charlotte Church No 'Feisty Simpleton'

Charlotte Church worries people see her as a "feisty, opinionated simpleton".

The Welsh former child star - once dubbed the 'Voice Of An Angel' - hopes to dispel any prejudices the public may have against her with new pop album 'Back To Scratch'; but admits it is a "struggle" because her career has sent mixed messages so far.

Charlotte exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "People generally think of me as this feisty, opinionated simpleton. But I'm really trying to make people understand where I'm coming from, which is a struggle.

"I think people are a little bit confused as to what the hell I'm doing because of the classical, because of the pop, because of the TV show, because of everything that they read in the papers every week, so my biggest problem is just getting people to understand it.

"The album is a bit deeper, there's a bit of pain in there and people will be like 'Oh wait she's human! Oh right, I thought she was a cartoon character'."

Charlotte - who split with fiance Gavin Henson earlier this year - also said 'Back To Scratch' contains some of her emotionally rawest songwriting to date.

She added: "The album is quite sad in parts but it's really honest and it's really raw and that's the only way I know in which to write really. It's pretty poppy but a lot of it is quite un-commerical."

'Back To Scratch' was released on Monday (25.10.10).
