  Charlotte Church swaps opera for R&B
Updated 19 January 2003, 11.29
Charlotte Church
Charlotte Church wants to stop singing opera and change to a more funky sound.

The teen superstar's told Radio 1 she's got no plans to record any more opera tracks.

And she said she'll be writing and recording in a few months.

"It won't be poppy, or dancey. It'll be R'n'B if anything," Charlotte said.

"I want to do something really different, really original. It'll have nothing to do with classical.

'Not stroppy'

"Opera is a lot of work. If I wanted to be a proper opera singer I'd have to train for hours a day.

Charlotte's already sung on the dance track The Opera Song by Jurgen Vries under her initials, CMC.

She also put the record straight on that tantrum she was meant to have thrown in the US recently.

"I don't throw strops," she said. "I'm not that type of person. It's unbusinesslike and it doesn't get you anywhere."
