The Evening Standard says:
The 24-year-old Welsh singer seemed to avoid waiting fans, and our spy said: "They were complaining that they feel she is getting too big for her boots."

DUFFY'S DIET COKE AD AVOIDS BAN
A Diet Coke commercial starring Welsh soul singer DUFFY has escaped a ban by Britain's advertising watchdog - after the footage was deemed irresponsible by U.K. road safety campaigners.
The Mercy hitmaker became the face of the soda giant's European TV campaign, which saw her riding a bike to the shops to pick up a can of her favourite carbonated drink.
But the ad came under fire as Duffy was not wearing a helmet or reflective gear as she cycled through dark streets - and road safety advocates called for the commercial to be banned as it may encourage young fans to emulate the star.
However, Britain's Advertising Standards Authority (ASA), have cleared the campaign - insisting the sequins on the star's outfit count as reflective gear in the U.K. Highway Code.
The ASA added no further action was required as most viewers, including children, would see the ad as "fantastical".
Guardian's take on it.

On a modest, but nice styled scene, entered the half-meter high diva Duffy on Sunday evening. Duffy moves from the debut album's title cut and transparent "Rock Ferry" and on through a fairly straight version of "Hang On Too Long" (suspiciously similar to "I Heard It Through The Grapevine ").Charming. At least NRK took some nice pics though:
She is dressed for the occasion in a short black skirt and let us therefore dwell long on the pale and - relatively speaking - his long legs. "Serious" is the first song that seriously gives festival mood...
Duffy introduces the timeless "Stepping Stone" with the words "Here we go bitches", and reminds us viewers that the main character herself is a little bitchy. She is, in a classy way with the hint of slut.

Unfortunately the weather was rather rainy in Stockholm tonight as Duffy delivered the following set as part of the "Where the action is" Festival.
Setlist (52 mins):
RockferryReview (Google translate result is below - rather poetic to say the least LOL:
Hanging on to long
Rain on your parade
Breaking my own heart
Fool for you
It was especially nice. Duffy magical voice, really so self-propelled and urstark out of this thin BODY, WOBBLING true to once or two, and the formidable run-twins, synchronized as Welsh atomic clocks, must have frozen their pale bodies of gangrene. Yet spread the heat. Yet put Duffy in the band of cold fish stick rigid easy smile in the audience rocking with its incredibly beautiful soul. Undeniably more snajdigt professional Paul Weller / Working week / Ben Sherman than American rotsoul. Which also appeared in the clothes and Duffy cool Heels. We were of course, hits and in the eternal strilet, only to smile to the songs "Serious" and "Mercy" (with Duffy's gaze to the sky) almost hit us with life's deep irony. At its best was the band and Duffy to it in a slightly restrained "Stepping Stones". Above all, neat.Another review.
