British singing sensation Dido is bemused that fans are so keen to pry into her private life - because all the vital information is documented in her songs.

The artist, who shot to superstardom when her vocals were sampled by Eminem in his hit STAN, recommends people listen to her lyrics instead of read tabloid reports - because they're always far from the truth.

She says, "People don't have a clue. In a funny sort of way, I don't care.

"I don't even read that much of it, but if I do, it's hilarious.

"I put so much into my music that I'm always like, 'Do people really need to know much about me?'"
