R&B star Estelle
is so convinced she will win a Grammy Award next year she got braces so she can show off a dazzling smile when she receives her award.
The singer has been desperate to get her crooked grin straightened since she was a teen, but was too frightened by the thought of pain to visit the orthodontist. But the star finally plucked up the courage to have her teeth aligned so she'll be able to flash her new grin at the high profile award ceremony in February.
Estelle tells British talk show GMTV: "I don't like pain... I'm such a wuss. I've decided to get them (braces) because I figure that I'll try and get some Grammys next year, and I want to smile and not be like, 'Oh God, my teeth!'"
