Tinie Tempah gave up the "perfect" girl to concentrate on his music career.

The British rapper - who scored his second number one single with 'Written In The Stars' last night (03.10.10) - revealed a track on his new album, 'Just a Little', is about the girl he gave up to realise his ambitions after breakthrough single 'Pass Out' earlier this year.

He explained: "I was sort of seeing somebody which was getting quite serious about three months before my 'Pass Out' was released.

"It started to get intense - you know, when you're in that really lovey-dovey phase and ring that person at 4am in the morning just to chat? 'Just a Little' is about a girl who was the perfect girl.

"There's nothing wrong with her and even now, when I look back on it, I'm like, 'Why am I not with her?' "She was flawless and never, ever did anything wrong. I just thought that before it got too emotional I should end it."

However, the 21-year-old rapper admitted he didn't think it would be fair to put another person through the upheaval he has had to go through to establish his career.

He added to the Daily Star newspaper: "In an ideal world I'd love to find that perfect person who understands my situation. However, right now life is very, very crazy.

"Sometimes I wake up not knowing where I am, then realise I'm in a different country. My phone always has a different dialling tone. I don't think it would be fair to put someone through that emotionally."
