Nelly Furtado - Nelly Furtado: I Was Set For Stardom From Childhood

Subscribe to Nelly Furtado alerts

Nelly Furtado knew she was going to be star from the age of four.

The 'Parking Lot' singer admits while she had a tough upbringing there was never any doubt in her mind that she was going to make it in the music industry and become a big name.

She said: ''I always saw it. I first performed when I was four. I really had a vision of performing in front of hundreds of people when I was that young. I always knew it would happen. I saw myself sitting at the Grammies ... I saw myself opening for U2 or whatever. It was a sure thing for me. I was lucky that way.''

However, while she always wanted to become a big music star and was able to make her dream come true Nelly still considers herself to be a very down-to-earth person.

The 33-year-old pop star has a nine-year-old daughter Nevin - her child with former partner Jasper Gahunia - and she realises that family and happiness are the most important things in life.

She told the Daily Mirror newspaper: ''True success is health and balance in one's life and making time for hobbies and family. It's the difference between seeing success as a destination and as a Journey. The idea that dreams come true and everything will be perfect? It doesn't work that way.''
