In the 2000s Westlife were one of the most popular boybands, and Mark Feehily (34) was one of the big stars who experienced hysterical conditions on their worldwide tours.
Now everyday is a little different for the former idol. In a recent interview with the radio station 2FM, the Irishman tells about his new career path.
Now Feehily is selling coffee and pancakes from a van in London.
- People are completely shocked by the fact that I am standing in a car and makes crepes. People somehow think that ", he was in Westlife a few years ago, and now he makes tea," says Feehily, according the Irish website Goss.
He says that the turnover is good, and that the small business already has been booked for many music festivals this summer.
Despite that Westlife was dissolved in 2012, Feehily insists that he has not rested after the star career.
- Everyone thinks I went back to my living room and have been sitting there in recent years, but even if you are not visible to people, does not mean that you do nothing, says Feehily.
The artist says that he went straight to the studio after the Westlife career ended, and that he now enjoys writing music that does not need to suit a whole group.
- The music I make is completely different from the one we did with Westlife, says Feehily, mentioning among other soul and gospel as inspiration sources.
The artist in 2005 told that he is gay and had an affair with fashion photographer Kevin McDaid. The two broke up in 2011, according to Daily Mail.
Westlife existed from 1998 to 2012. The boyband consisted of Feehily, Nicky Byrne, Kian Egan and Shane Filan. The most famous member was Brian McFadden, who was a member from 1998 until he left Westlife in favor of a solo career in 2004.
Westlife have sold more than 6.8 million singles and 11 million albums just in the UK.
