The singer talks fidelity, love for his wife, Tiger Woods and the Beckhams.
British singer-songwriter Seal just doesn't get what happened to Tiger Woods. Fame, money, a beautiful wife and a Bennington family... why give it away? To him, it just doesn't make sense! Especially when taking stock of his own life with its superficial similarities to the disgraced golfer. In a recent article with the UK's The Mirror, he's the first one reminding the world just how lucky he is.
Frankly, we don't blame him: between a successful music career, beautiful children and married to one of the most gorgeous women in the world, Heidi Klum, we're surprised he's not just a touch more boastful. Seal Shares The Secret For A Happy Marriage
During his interview, Seal, who left home at the age of 15, spilled the beans on quite a bit, including how he met Klum, how happy he is with her and their family today and even his player past: "I met Heidi when I was 40 and I'd done all the messing around," he said. "In fact, I've probably done enough for four lifetimes. I was no saint!"
But there comes a point where you're either going to grow up or you're going to be some old rock star w***** who can't keep it in his pants, an embarrassment to his kids. And that's nothing to do with Heidi... it's just not me. I do understand why people are tempted and I understand why people do it. "Have I cheated before? Hell, yes! Not in my marriage, but in relationships before. And it's not because I'm trying to be a good man or trying to resist temptation. I mean, I'm married first of all to one of, if not the most wonderful women in the world. She is everything - funny, attractive, hardworking, she has integrity, she loves me to bits.
Honestly, if I was looking at myself and I cheated, then I'd just think, 'Wow, how disappointing, I actually thought you were better than that'. It's about me and about the kind of man I want to be." [Source: Mirror]
Although Seal is no stranger to leading the bad boy life and admits it isn't for him anymore, he does seem to understand where Tiger's coming from.
"I don't condone it, but I get why he did it. He didn't have anyone in his corner to say, 'Hey mate, no you don't.' What he did have was loads of 'yes' people. He just didn't see it coming. He thought he was God and that he could do no wrong. And they always get you."
In the same interview, he did find positive words about another celeb power couple: David and Victoria Beckham, saying: "I have a lot of respect for those two because, despite what they do in their professional lives, they're just always there for their kids."
Personally, we'd have to say that we're happy that Seal is sharp enough to realize exactly what he's got. We just wish that he would have rubbed off on Tiger before his relationship took a deep nosedive. In any case, we wish Seal and Heidi the best. And in the process, we hope Tiger can take a lesson from Seal's Book of Love, too.
