London, Feb 26 (IANS) Singer Peter Andre still can’t believe the “longevity” of his career, as he says he sometimes has to pinch himself to make sure he’s not dreaming.
The 45-year-old singer said he still struggles to get to grips with having a career than spans 25 years, as although not everything he does “works”, the things that do are always “bigger” than he imagines, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
Asked if he ever has “pinch me” moments, Andre said: “Oh yeah. Not everything I do works – something won’t be successful, but the others are 10 times bigger than I could have imagined. I think that’s the thing – riding that wave. That’s longevity.”
The “Mysterious girl” hitmaker’s biggest career shocks include bagging a World Music award and selling out London’s O2 Arena.
“There are so many. I just got sent a video of when I received my World Music award in Monaco – that’s like a Grammy to me. I remember being presented the award by Helena Christensen. Lionel Richie was in front, Celine Dion, Julio Iglesias, the Bee Gees,” he told TV Life magazine.
Andre added: “That was a huge moment. And selling out the O2 arena twice. But I always dream bigger. I think if I keep dreaming high and I never actually reach it, I can’t get c**ky.”
Next on his bucket list is a Hollywood acting career, which he’s kicking off with a role in a short film.
He said: “I’ve just done ‘The Inheritance’, my first short film. We’ve put it into Cannes Film Festival and Hollywood Film Festival so we’re waiting to hear if we get nominated.”
