Singer Lulu’s Childhood Ruined By Stardom
Singer Lulu has revealed that she believes starting her music career aged just 12 has left her “emotionally stunted”.
The 64-year-old Scottish star says that having no education and being away from her parents at such a young age was too much for her.
“It was both terrifying and exciting,” Lulu tells Saga magazine. “I was singing non-stop but when I went to bed I’d cry because I missed my mummy and daddy. I literally stopped going to school when I was 13.
“I wouldn’t want my granddaughter to do it at such a young age. I think I am emotionally stunted as a result.”
