Charlotte Church felt like “commodity” on a major record company.
The 36-year-old rose to fame as a classical singer before breaking into pop music in 2005 – but Charlotte admits being on a major label was a ‘double-edged sword’.
Asked about her worst work, Charlotte replied, “It was a double-edged sword, but being a major label artist, I felt like a commodity, something to sell.”
Charlotte also admits to having abused it too much as a teenage music star.
Speaking to the Guardian newspaper, she recalled: “When I was 18 I bought a boat for a million pounds and sold it a year later for just over half the price. “
Charlotte has children Ruby, 14, and Dexter, 13, with Gavin Henson, as well as Frida, 23 months, with husband Johnny Powell.
And the ‘Call My Name’ hitmaker enjoyed spending time at home with his family during the COVID-19 lockdown.
She shared, “Obviously there was terrible grief and sadness and fear, but there was also this recuperation for nature. I was constantly at my allotment with the big kids and my husband.”
Earlier this year, Charlotte described motherhood as her “main job” in life.
The singer insisted that her work will always come after her offspring.
She said: “I’ve always continued to sing and make music, and I have my own show ‘Late Night Pop Dungeon’ – I just did it my way.
“I’ve been pretty adamant about my production and my creativity and how I want it to be. Most of the time it doesn’t make a lot of traditional sense, and that’s fine. As I have said, I’m just going to see where this river takes me. But my main job in life is as a mother, so as long as it doesn’t take me too far away from my beautiful babies.
