Arctic Monkeys frontman Alex Turner has vowed to keep out of the gossip columns following his high-profile split from MTV presenter Alexa Chung.
The British rocker and former model Chung ended their four-year relationship in July (11), insisting the split was "completely amicable".
The rock 'n' roll couple had become regulars in the British tabloid press during their romance - but Turner is now determined to keep a low public profile following the break-up.
He tells NME magazine, "I just think I'll take a step back from all that stuff. It's nothing, it's out of my control, and it's not me. I never went in search of that and I still don't."
