Default Duffy: I only feel really famous now Bon Jovi’s covered my song

Duffy’s hit ‘Mercy’ might have reached number 1 in 15 countries around the world and hit the top 10 in another 17, but she’s revealed that it was only when Bon Jovi covered it during their recent tour that she realised she was famous.

She told Spin magazine recently: “It’s a strange feeling when a person at that level is playing a song I wrote.

“It’s like, ‘Oh my gosh, I’m really here now. [Jon] Bon Jovi knows that I exist.’

“A girl from Wales - that’s all I am, really.”

Yeah, must be great for her. She's different to the music that is made these days and that's good becuase there is some rubbish that gets made lol

I can't quite like her, just nothing special in the songs for me. Good luck to her though, at least she isn't going about the place a la Amy Winehouse.

Too bad either Duffy or the person who wrote this article doesn't know Bon Jovi covered her song and not just Jon.

Haha yeah.... well in this article they got that bit right:

Quote:
In the accompanying interview Duffy credits BON JOVI with helping her to realise she’d hit the big time – when the rock giants covered her tune Mercy.

She said: “It’s a strange feeling when a person at that level is playing a song I wrote.

“It’s like, ‘Oh my gosh, I'm really here now. Bon Jovi knows that I exist.’

“A girl from Wales – that’s all I am, really.”
and they didn't put Jon in brackets before Bon Jovi.
