London, Feb 17: Laura Mvula believes she isn't good at being a pop star as she is very shy.
The 27-year-old singer-songwriter is in the race to receive a best British Breakthrough Act prize at the upcoming BRIT Awards.
"I'm still very shy, and very private. Being a pop star is something I don't think I'm very good at. I'm worried it's making me too paranoid, because all of a sudden, life has become this constant assessment," contactmusic.com quoted Mvula as saying.
"When you put something out there and people get to hear it, then those people react to it, socially, culturally," she added.
