Tinie Tempah wants to go backpacking

UK star wants to see the world

Tinie Tempah has revealed that he wants to go backpacking around the world in the future.

The 23-year-old hip-hop star, famous for songs such as Pass Out and Written in the Stars, told Bang Showbiz that he felt he'd missed out on some of the normal things that young people do because of his fame and fortune.

He said: "With success coming early I missed out on all that. Falling out of a nightclub in Las Vegas is my idea of backpacking.

"Saying that, it's something I'd like to do in the future. I'm looking forward to visiting some of the countries I've fallen in love with and seeing them properly."

Gap years are thought to be for people who are between stages in life, but Tinie Tempah's leading the way for the rich and famous too, and apparently he's happy roughing it. He wants to go back and revisit some of the countries he's already been too, so who knows, maybe you'll bump into Tinie on your travels.

Tinie Tempah is currently adding the finishing touches to his new album Demonstration, which is due for release later this year.
