Duffy Responds To Estelle
MTV News Exclusive | We quizzed the Mercy star about Estelle's Comments before her Teenage Cancer Trust show.
Duffy has responded to Estelles recent comments claiming the Welsh singer doesnt represent soul music- in an exclusive chat with MTV News.
The Mercy singer told us: I dont wanna stand as a definition of soul music and I dont think I ever will but there is influence of that in my music. She continued: What you have to remember is a lot of kids dont know about the great 60s and 70s soul music.
So all I can do is channel those influences and interpret it in a contemporary way.
Last month Estelle told us: You cant tell me that you can redefine soul music as Duffy and Adele because I didnt grow up (with it) and I dont identify with it.
Duffy was speaking at the Royal Albert Hall before her excellent Teenage Cancer Trust gig in support of Paul Weller. She revealed: When Paul asked me to support him I thought it was a great honour and its a really great charity.
The singer's next single from her superb Rockferry album is Warwick Avenue- which comes out next month.
The Who, David Gray and Muse will all play Teenage Cancer Trust shows over the next few days. Find out more about the charity here
