Jazz singer Katie Melua insists she doesn't care if some people think her music is 'uncool' - because it comes from the heart.
The 21-year-old hitmaker, who shot to fame in 2003 with her hit debut album CALL OFF THE SEARCH, admits her fans are decades older than her.
Melua says, "I make the type of music that feels natural to me and comes out of me from a very deep place.
"I don't really know why my music appeals to an older generation. All I can say is it's completely from my heart and it's what feels most natural.
"OK, it happens not to be hip and cool, but I'd hate to make music just to be hip and cool.
"I'm not going to suddenly get an electric guitar out, and you know, get naked just to appeal to the younger fans."
