Anastacia proud of inspiring music

Anastacia feels proud that her songs have helped young fans deal with some of their problems.

The 47-year-old singer believes her sixth studio album 'Resurrection', which was inspired by her battle with breast cancer and decision to have a double mastectomy in 2013, has saved lives because the lyrics are so inspiring.

Speaking exclusively to BANG Showbiz, she said: "I have a lot of young fans telling me they have a lot of issues with the pressure of life with all the new technology and they were having a lot of suicidal thoughts."

The 'I'm Outta Love' hitmaker's powerful lyrics have even inspired tattoo designs, with some fans getting her song title 'Stay' scribbled on their flesh.

She explained: "My new album has the song 'Stay' on it, which was literally like, 'I want to stay living on this earth', I have people that have tattooed the word 'Stay' on their body.

Anastacia - whose 'Ultimate Collection', greatest hits album is out now - added: "And they're showing it [the tattoo] to me going, 'I'm here today because of you.'"
