The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - Stellar - - Contents - Sar­rah Le Mar­quand

Blame it on Aus­tralia’s tall poppy syn­drome, or per­haps the con­ta­gious sense of out­rage that fuels cer­tain pock­ets of so­cial me­dia, but for what­ever rea­son Delta Goodrem is one of those peo­ple who brings the haters out in force. She has her loyal fans too – mil­lions of them, in fact – but in some cir­cles it’s fash­ion­able to sneer at any­thing The Voice star does. For Goodrem her­self, who prefers to fo­cus on the pos­i­tives of a ca­reer that is now in its 17th year, the “pre­dictable and bor­ing” back­lash is some­thing she has learned to tune out. “The other stuff is not real life,” she tells Stel­lar. “The hate… it just washes off me. Part of me wants to thank those peo­ple who made me this strong to be able to brush it off – be­cause it’s re­ally free­ing.”
