Katie Price sings on despite flop

Katie Price has vowed to continue singing - despite her latest single being received as a chart flop.







The glamour-model-turned-reality-star said she would probably not promote her next release with a dance routine as she found it was "too much pressure".



Last week Price pulled the plug on a high-profile live music show at G-A-Y, just days after limping to number 60 in the singles chart with Free To Love Again, despite a whirl of interviews.



But the star, who conceded she is "not a Whitney Houston", told ITV1's This Morning that she will be free to sing again.



Price, who has been busy promoting her new book Paradise, told presenters Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford: "I am going to bring out something again.



"The reason I didn't do G-A-Y is you have to do two songs - they wanted me to do two songs.



"And obviously because the book's out, I couldn't stress myself out to do another song and a dance routine, it was just too much pressure.



"I don't want to do music as a career, but I love singing.



"And I did that song, and I am going to do another song and I'll bring it out on iTunes. I'm not a singer but I love doing it."



Price continued: "My mum said: 'Kate, why are you doing it?'



"I'm like: 'Mum, because I want to do it and I can do it.'



"So I will, but I probably won't promote it, I'll just do it all digital because I want to do it."



Quizzed on speculation that she cannot sing, Price insisted: "I can sing, but I'm not a Whitney Houston or someone like that...



"But to me, getting on stage to try and do a dance routine, I have to mime because I just can't do it, it's just not for me."



Price scotched suggestions that her popularity is starting to wane.



She hit back: "I think it's absolute nonsense. My signings - I did one on Saturday for my equestrian range - it was absolutely packed, it was brilliant, it was fantastic.



"It's really weird, it's like they write rubbish about me but I think people come along because they're intrigued to think 'Is she really this bad? What is going on?'



"So actually no, not all, I can't wait to do my book signings. Everything's up, my books are selling really well. But you know, it's the dramas that the papers write."



Price went on to have a pop at her own enhanced image - comparing herself with a "chipmunk".



She said: "Do you know, on my Hen we all had filler, Botox, lip, and I said: 'No, I'm not doing it again!'



"They're like: 'Oh we did Kate', and I'm like: 'Oh go on, I'll have a little bit'.



"But when I had it done... it looked awful but it's all going down now.



"The thing is, it doesn't last forever which is good. But no, I still look like a chipmunk."



Asked what motivates her to undergo Botox, Price said: "It's not permanent. Yeah, no it's mad, but then I blame my friends and my family because we all did it."



Price denied she was addicted to the treatment, saying: "No, if you have the proper stuff, like I've seen some people who go too far... but the odd jab of Botox and that - it's like, everyone does it.



"It's so obvious what celebrities have had it these days, and they're like: 'Oh no, I'm natural'.



"It's absolute rubbish."
