Amy Shark admits she often ‘deeply regrets’ becoming famous as she exposes the ‘ugly’ side of success: ‘I have some dark moments’

She may be the proud recipient of eight ARIA Awards and string of number one hits. 

But Amy Shark, 36, insists there’s a dark side to the glitzy life of Australia’s pop darling.

Speaking to the Courier Mail on Friday, the Australian Idol judge said admitted that she often regrets becoming a household name.

‘I love it [fame] and it’s great but then it can be really ugly as well. And people change and everything feels different and weird, and some days it’s just like, ‘argh, I just want to go back; I want to go back to not having the name attached to me’,’ the singer-songwriter said.

‘I sway back and forth all the time between taking advantage of Amy Shark and deeply regretting it,’ the Adore singer continued.

It’s not the first time Shark, born Amy Billings, has exposed the less-than-glamorous side of making it as a musician. 

Speaking to Mamamia last year, Shark insisted that fame often causes relationships to change for the worse. 

‘When you romanticise this life, you never think of that side of it. You never go to bed thinking ‘oh I wish I was a musician but there’s probably some downsides to it’, you don’t think of that,” she said.

‘But it is weird for people. This didn’t happen to me at 16, so it’s not like people have known me like this for ages. It’s more like suddenly they are seeing their friend on television, or on the radio. It’s weird for them, I get it, it’s weird for me too.’ 

‘I’ll never fully wrap my head around what happens to people,’ she continued. ‘But I just have to keep my circles a bit smaller now I guess. Which sucks,’ she admitted.  

Meanwhile, Amy is gearing up to headline at the upcoming Elevate Sydney festival alongside The Veronicas and rapper Mallrat. 

The free event will run from 3 – 7 January and will be held at the the Cahill expressway.
