British singer Dido is upset when her live shows attract bad reviews - but only when she knows she failed to put the effort in.

But the THANK YOU star is confident she's perfected her new album LIFE FOR RENT to the point that it is immune from such criticism.

She explains, "The times I've been badly affected by criticism are when know they've got a point.

"Like if you've done a show and it wasn't as good as you could've done and you get slagged off for it, it's horrible, because you know you've been rumbled.

"My one aim for this new record was to truly believe in every f***ing note, because when I put it out there some people are going to slag it off anyway. That's inevitable."
