BLUE singer Lee Ryan knows why he's stalked by the press - because he's more interesting than other celebrities.

The wacky singer's antics include being arrested for drunk driving last month (AUG03), admitting to believing in aliens and telling people to "forget about" the 11 September (01) terrorist attacks because elephants are dying.

Lothario Lee says, "I'll tell you what it is - no-one in this business does anything interesting. I'm not saying that I'm the one that's gonna change everything, but I like having fun.

"I don't take all this too seriously. I mean, I love music and that gives me so much pleasure and I'm grateful for being in the business, but people like to chat about me."
