Fame came as a big surprise to unassuming popstar and 'the next Justin Bieberlake', Conor Maynard.
Speaking about the early days of his career, Conor told Attitude: "People online started adding me on Facebook. And I was saying, 'I'm sorry, I don't think I know you'".
It turns out they were a legion of future 'Mayniacs', but the budding popstar was seemingly just as incredulous when a strange man on the internet asked Conor to Skype with him.
"Someone got in contact with me, claiming to be working really closely with Ne-Yo," he explained, "and I was thinking, 'this is blatantly my dad upstairs faking it'."
Rather your dad than a 45-year-old intent on bumming your head off, Conor.
