Singing sensation Anastacia is so obscure in her native America, she is often introduced as a European star - and she's perfectly happy about it.

But the MADE FOR LOVIN' YOU star, born and bred in New York City, doesn't care about being unknown in the United States, as she is phenomenally successful everywhere else.

She says, "I have not wanted to take another huge territory on my back when this career has been as huge as it is.

"I don't need to have America. I still get on TV shows, I'm known as 'Anastacia, the great singer from Europe.'"
