London: Actor Robert Pattinson says he has dropped the idea of becoming a rock star because he was afraid of being criticised for his musical offerings.

"With movies, I can handle the criticism because you can always blame it on someone else. But with music, as soon as you put something out there everyone judges it," showbizspy.com quoted Pattinson as saying.

"I don`t necessarily want people to judge it or care. The day it comes out I know I`m going to be on the internet looking at stuff and I`ll probably shoot myself. So I don`t know if it`s worth shooting myself over," added the 25-year-old.
