When we think of Tinie Tempah we think, young, talented and confident. But in a recent interview with the Sun, the Written in the Stars rapper revealed that he wasn’t so happy with his body and that his lack of confidence prevented him from taking off his shirt during performances at festivals last year.

There were occasions during the festivals last year when I wanted to take off my shirt, but the time wasn’t right… I’ve been going to the gym and learning to box. By summer I want to be in tip-top shape.

Lat year we saw Tinie spend a lot of time in America promoting singles like Pass Out and Frisky as well as doing collaborations with US rapper Wiz Khalifa. So spending all that time in the junk food capital of the world is enough to send anyone hurrying to the gym.

Tinie also recently told Q magazine that he wanted work in the fashion industry and we don’t know about you but we’re hoping that Tinie’s new buff body will be the face of his new fashion brand.Perhaps he’ll even treat us to some David Beckham Emporio Armani-esque poses?
