Irish boyband Westlife hate their image as boring pop stars - even though they admit they're as "exciting as watching paint dry". The five-piece insist they understand why they are criticised by the music industry, but believe only fans get to see the real Westlife when they perform on stage. Nicky Byrne says, "From the outside in - actually from the inside out as well - I can see why people think some of the things they do about Westlife. "The black suits and everything, it's as exciting as watching paint dry, but when you get into Westlife, when you know us personally, when you come to see our live shows it's the complete opposite."
