Robert Pattinson's album plans on hold because he can't handle the criticism

Robert Pattinson has given up his dreams of becoming a pop star because he fears he won't be able to deal with the criticism from music experts.

Two of the British star's songs appeared on the first Twilight album and he also contributed three tunes to the soundtrack for the film How to Be, prompting many fans to believe and album would be next - but he insists there are no plans to head into the recording studio anytime soon.

He explains, "Doing movies, I can handle the criticism because you can always blame somebody else. There are hundreds of people to blame. But, with music, as soon as you're putting something out there you're basically only putting an album out there for people to judge it.

"I don't necessarily want people to judge it. Also I know if I had an album out, the day it comes out I'm gonna be on the internet looking at stuff (comments) and I'll probably shoot myself. So I don't know if it's worth shooting myself over."
