Will Young - Competitive Will Young

Will Young is "competitive".

The 'Jealousy' singer admits he has had to develop a thick skin since entering the music business, but would never intentionally treat someone badly to get what he wanted.

He said: "I am quietly competitive. You need nerves of steel to stick around in the music business.

"But I would never walk over anyone to get what I wanted. I want to feel that I've done as much as I can, because we're not here for long."

Since rising to fame on UK TV talent show 'Pop Idol' in 2002, Will has released five studio albums, and he admits he is more "proud" of his accomplishments than he has ever been

He told Stylist magazine: "It's amazing that I'm still around after five albums and a greatest hits compilation.

"I'm even more proud of my work today than I was 10 years ago. It's not that I'm not proud of my past but what I'm doing now both in music and outside of it, is stuff I'm really happy to put my name to."
