London, Feb 16 (IANS) Grammy award winner Duffy had never dreamt of becoming a singer as she was very shy as a child.

“As a kid, I never wanted to be a singer - I was far too shy - but I needed a way of externalizing my thoughts and singing was one of the best options to say what I believed in,” Duffy said, reports chinadaily.com.

“I used to be a good swimmer so if not a singer, I would have been a swimmer,” she added.

The 24-year-old pop star had recently revealed that she would like to swap her retro 60s sound and make a more modern record, as she has established herself on the world music scene.
