Lennox Fears She's A Fraud

Former EURYTHMICS star ANNIE LENNOX fears she's a "fraud" for accepting an honorary doctorate from the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama. The SWEET DREAMS (ARE MADE OF THIS) singer, who was honoured alongside MRS BROWN star BILLY CONNOLLY and actress TILDA SWINTON, received the award at the academy's summer graduation ceremony in Glasgow today (04JUL06). Despite expressing her gratitude, Lennox also revealed she felt thoroughly undeserving of the accolade. She said, "I'm very happy to be here, even though I feel like a complete fraud. "What I have done with my life has all been about self-invention and I didn't have degrees or qualifications or anyone to guide me and I still work very much in that way. "But I do think it's great that young people today can have people to help them out because Scotland has turned out some tremendous artists and performer and writers, and if we can keep that tradition going, it would be a fantastic thing." Lennox can add the prize to an already impressive trophy cabinet, which boasts four Grammy Awards, seven Brit Awards, a Golden Globe and an Academy Award.
