London, June 19: Keira Knightley has revealed that she shunned music during her growing up days because she found boy bands “offensive”.
The Pirates of the Caribbean star, who is engaged to wed Klaxons rocker James Righton, has admitted that she only began to appreciate music when she entered her twenties.
“It’s a really weird one. I remember I actively didn’t listen to music through my teenage years,” the Daily Express quoted her as telling the Sun newspaper.
“I remember being 11 and my friends suddenly got into music, and me still wanting to play, like play make-believe, and suddenly I was supposed to be listening to boybands and I found it really offensive.
“I thought it was literally the fault of the boybands. So I didn’t listen to music until my early or mid-twenties and I was like, ‘Oh, I get it, this is great.’” she added. (ANI)
