London: 'Twilight' actor Robert Pattinson says he has given up his dreams of becoming a pop star as he fears of criticism from music experts.

The 25-year-old's songs appeared on the first 'Twilight' album and he also contributed three tunes to the soundtrack for the film 'How to Be'. The actor insists there are no plans to head into the recording studio anytime soon, as reported.

"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," Pattinson said.
