Pop star Mandy Moore hates her first two albums and has apologised to fans who bought them.

The singer insists fans should only consider her third LP, a release of cover tracks.

She says, "Ugh, those were awful. If I had the money, I would give a refund to everyone who bought my first two albums.

"Whenever people ask, 'Which of your albums should I listen to?' I say, 'NOTHING BUT COVERAGE'. Burn the rest."
