Melbourne, Oct 19 : Singer Jess Origliasso of 'The Veronicas' fears that her nude photo scandal might prevent the group from winning the prestigious ARIA award.
The rock band hopes to win one of the four ARIA Awards they have been nominated in but fears that the Jess's nude photos leaked on the Internet might just put her off from winning.
"Getting nominated for an ARIA isn't easy and winning one is so much harder," the Daily Telegraph quoted Jess, as saying.
And if the band doesn't win, its "because my boobs were flashed all over the world, she added.
But if they do win their first acceptance speech will be the ubiquitous thank-yous to their record label, fans and supporters.
She said: "I want to get on my soapbox. I think the speech would be that I want to remind people we are up there because we worked hard to realise a dream we have had since we were so young.
"We worked so hard to get to the point where people could rethink pop music and that you can have longevity doing that kind of music, that it doesn't have to be disposable.
"What pissed me off about everything that has happened this year is that it has degraded and detracted from what we have done."
