Duffy's nose for music. Duffy explains how a bloody nose and a
psychic doctor inspired her career.
Duffy has revealed that she has a broken nose and a psychic doctor to thank for her successful singing career.
The Welsh chart sensation, whose debut album Rockferry has topped the charts, told itv.com that the bizarre incident came about when she was only four years old and her sister blindfolded her to play a game of chase around the garden.
Duffy said: “She forgot I was blindfolded. I ran into a fence and broke my nose… I went to the doctor, nose broken, everything was a mess, I was screaming and everybody was really upset. And the doctor said one day she’ll be a really good singer.”
Meanwhile, the star has also revealed that, despite her initial fear of fame, she now doesn’t give two hoots if she is caught looking worse for wear by fans – and has even dubbed herself “scruffy Duffy”.
