Gavin Rossdale tired of having to justify his seat on The Voice

© Provided by Cover Media Rocker Gavin Rossdale is sick of fellow Brits talking about his lack of success at home.

The singer has sold over 10 million albums worldwide as the frontman for Bush, but the band never made it in the U.K. and now that he's a judge on the talent show The Voice, he's getting tired of critics challenging his role on the programme.

"'Oh, sorry you never made it in England, but you made it in America...' It's been written about me for 20 years," Gavin tells "Every time I’ve ever read anything about me, that’s all it is.

"I’m not trying to be Justin Timberlake... When did I ever make a statement that I should be known and that I had made this concerted effort to be a pop star that everyone knew. I never was that guy. But I’m still making the records - and come to my shows: they’re packed."

And he admits he's getting more and more upset by trolls who don't think he's a big enough name to sit among Tom Jones, and Jennifer Hudson on The Voice.

"All I wanted to tweet back was, 'Who are you? Who is anyone?'" he sneers. "We all are nobody, so I just was in the club. Why was I guilty? I just made records and I wasn’t (pretending to be) in a band that had the kind of prestige of Radiohead.”
