Plan B taking fame hiatus

Reunions & Splits

Plan B

Plan B – aka rapper Ben Drew – is going to stop being a celebrity for about twelve months, or so he’s said in an interview with The Sun. Apparently, he wants time away from the ‘media glare’ to make an authentic new LP about real-life things, so that’s nice.

And so to that crucial quote: “I want to take a year out from being photographed and going to shows. I’m living the dream I guess, a red carpet is rolled out everywhere I go. People treat me differently. But the only way I can keep on making music about real life is to live in normality, and the last three years I haven’t been. It’s been touring, awards shows and stuff that’s great fun – but I’m an artist and I need inspiring. It’ll be nice to get away from that celebrity circuit”.
