What Kate won't do next


SINGER Kate Bush has turned down the chance to be a film star.

For the two leading roles she was offered were in HORROR movies -- about vampires.

And the prospect didn't wow 20-year-old Kate at all.

She chuckled yesterday: " It's interesting to see how people cast you. But I don't think I'm anything like a vampire."


Kate, who was voted best female singer in the Daily Mirror Rock and Pop Awards last week is currently starring in her first show at the London Palladium.

And she insisted: "Music and the theatre are the only important things in my life."

Did that exclude marriage ?

Kate said: "I have some boyfrlends, but no one steady."

"The only reason I would marry is to have children and they are a responsibility that can't be taken lightly.

"I couldn't have a career and children. It's either one or the other."

What about her "sex symbol" tag?

Kate said: " It worried me at first that people would look upon me as a body and a face and ignore my music.

"Nowadays I accept the sex symbol remarks as a compliment."
