WHO IS DUFFY'S CELEB FRIEND?
Wednesday July 30,2008
DESPITE rumours of ill-feeling between Duffy and veteran pop crooner Paul Weller, the rising Welsh singer reports that the unlikely new friendship is actually going swimmingly.
Chart-topping Duffy was said to have turned down the chance to sing with the Modfather at this year’s Mojo music awards when he was presented with the Outstanding Contribution To Music gong and she scooped Song Of The Year for her hit Mercy.
But the 24-year-old insists she and the grizzled former Jam frontman, 50, have bonded over their love of music.
“We’re friends,” she says.
“He’s a really great bloke. When things chill out we’ll hang out a bit more but we’ve had a few moments and it’s been so nice to talk to him about music – he’s really into it.
“Our paths are slightly similar – we were both 14 years old when we started getting into music and hanging out at clubs, knowing this was going to be our lives. It’s pretty cool, really, although we’re a generation apart.”
