British singer Seal has warned wannabe stars to think twice about desiring fame, because of the enormous pressure that comes with celebrity.

Seal, who is expecting a child with his model wife Heidi Klum in September (05), frequently experiences the down side of being a public figure but chooses to not let things get him down.

He says, "Your private life is suddenly owned by everyone. They control you, make up stories, exaggerate things. Many people crack under this pressure.

"But I don't want to complain. I live an extraordinary life, probably because I take things easy."
