In an interview with The Metro, Marcus Collins has 'revealed' how Rihanna and Lady Gaga helped him while he was on The X Factor.
"They told us about dealing with the press," he recalled. "They said just to ignore it and stay true to who you are."
That's really bad advice actually but there you go.
He was also pleased to discover that "lots of them [big popstars] still suffer from stage fright", which he thinks "adds to the intensity of the performance and how natural it comes across".
