Mercury Music Prize nominee KT Tunstall hates critics who compare her to Dido because she hates the FOR RENT singer's breathy tones.

The Scots OTHER SIDE OF THE WORLD newcomer was thrilled when her debut album EYE TO THE TELESCOPE earned her the prestigious nomination at the Mercurys, but fumes hurtful critics have ruined her happiness with their cynical comments and ugly comparisons.

She says, "I'm fine with criticism, but some of the remarks were rather offensive.

"Well, there was a newspaper which said that I was just on the Mercury shortlist to 'bump up the female head count'. And that's just f**king insulting.

"And then there are comparisons to Dido. I don't sound anything like her! Dido can't f**king sing."
