Fame has brought some complications for British pop singer Kim Wilde  - it ruined her love life. "That part of my life was in a much better state of affairs before I became famous," she says. Kim says it is hard to find someone genuine who wants to get to know the real Kim Wilde. The 27-year-old British pop singer, model and former tabloid Page Three girl is in Sydney to promote her sixth album, Close. "I'm in the eighth year of my career and I've developed a lot. I've only just begun to think of myself as a woman." This is evident in her new sultry videos; an image which is becoming her trademark. She loves to pout and play up to the camera but said in the early days she was very shy. "I was a 20-year-old with a teenage mentality."
