  Sneddon 'doesn't want pop career'
Updated 31 October 2003, 07.48
David Sneddon will be doing some TV presenting
Fame Academy winner David Sneddon is aiming to quit his career as a pop star less than a year after he won the TV talent show, according to reports.

He wants to step out of the limelight to concentrate on songwriting, he told the Daily Record newspaper.

"I have had a good year and I know what I want to do with my life - being a pop star isn't it," he said.

David won the first series of Fame Academy in December 2002. Since then, he's had two top 10 singles.

His third single, Baby Get Higher, was released on Monday.

In the newspaper interview, David also reveals that he is fed up with the music industry, saying it is "all about making money".

He slammed current chart music, saying "most of it is rubbish".

The second series of Fame Academy finished earlier this month, with Cornwall's Alex Parks walking away with the top prize of a record deal and luxury lifestyle.
