AMOS DREADED ONE-ON-ONE CONTACT

American singer TORI AMOS forged a relationship with her fans during her heyday, to avoid getting intimate with potential partners.

The CORNFLAKE GIRL star, who has been married for the past seven years to MARK HAWLEY, preferred to have an "affair" with her myriad of fans rather than experience one-on-one contact.

Amos, 41, says, "It was a paradox.

"I was close to thousands of people on stage, and more comfortable there than being alone with a guy in a room.

"So I'm able to have conversations with the world, but alone in a room I run for the hills.

"But that makes sense, because, you know, you feel invaded.

"There is a protection in having an affair with thousands of people. Nobody can really cross the line."
