“I do want a relationship at some stage but you can''t just fling yourself into that sort of situation. That''s madness," said the singer, who lived the early part of his life in Sydney. The 'Mysterious Girl" hitmaker also disclosed how he was hated in Australia. He said: "It was all there: the world tours, the success in Europe, the women, the sex, the unbelievable amount of sex, and then it ended.
"Celebrity is a very strange thing. What happened to me is that I got really big and then it just turned on me. In Australia, people - guys particularly - absolutely hated me. It turned very nasty, going from snide comments in magazines to death threats. "I couldn''t understand why. I tried to bury my fears and run away from it all, but eventually it just all caught up with me and I broke down.
