Marcus Mumford: Mulligan marriage stays secret

Marcus Mumford and Carey Mulligan

Marcus Mumford escapes the public interest in his marriage to Carey Mulligan by going on tour.

The lead singer of folk rock band Mumford & Sons tied the knot with the Hollywood actress in an intimate ceremony in England earlier this year. They are reluctant to talk about their relationship and Marcus is still uncomfortable with the attention surrounding his love life.

"No, as I avoid all that by going on tour," he told UK newspaper The Sun when asked if his life has changed since he became one half of a celebrity couple. "We don't get involved in the attention or talk about it really. It just stays private and I'm just always on tour."

Mumford & Sons are currently promoting their second album Babel.

The award-winning group are renowned for their energetic stage shows and Marcus shows no signs of slowing down any time soon.

"I'll tour until I'm dead as that's where we are most at home. And I hope that's come across on Babel," he explained. "We wanted our second album to be an advert for our live shows. That's why it's more of a mixture than the first record."

You're tired of giving away your precious talent for a pittance. Stand in your own defence. If you don't, nobody else will.More
