Chanelle: 'I'm more than a Posh wannabe'

Chanelle Hayes wants her new single to show doubters that she is genuinely talented.

The ex-Big Brother housemate is hoping 'I Want It' will prove that she is more than a second-rate Victoria Beckham.

The 20-year-old will launch her music career on TV show Chanelle: Wannabe Popstar later this month.

She told Star: "I know that people think I'm talentless, but I've played the violin since I was seven and then I did music at A Level. I want to have a go at it and show people that I'm not just a miserable cow walking around with a pout on my face."

Dismissing claims that she is attempting to copy her idol's music style, she said: "Yeah, we wear similar clothes because I choose to but she sings one way and I sing another. I don't sound like her when I speak and I'm not trying to sound like her when I sing."

She also insisted that she is unconcerned whether the single is a success, saying: "People love to hate, and if people don't like it - fair enough. I've got a CD with my name on it that I can give to my mum and she'll be dead proud.

"I just want to show that I can pose on the cover of a magazine or newspaper but I can also do academic things as well."

Hayes previously likened her music to Britney Spears.
