Scottish star Paolo Nutini has waded in on the independence debate, admitting that he is not sure how he will vote come 18 September.

Speaking to MTV, the Last Request singer said that he planned to 'fully educate' himself before publicly backing a 'yes' or 'no' vote.

"I'm taking every minute, I'm taking as much time as I have between now and the election to fully educate myself," he explained.

"And the thing about it is, I spend very little time there. So I'm in no position to tell anybody what to do because it really is each person's choice. It should be thought through very carefully. It is what it is."

Nutini, 27, went on to state that although it was only natural that Scotland would want to regain full control, he felt that not all politicians campaigning for independence have the country's best interests at heart.

"I think there's been a lot of petty scaremongering happening now. I think that a union benefits the top a lot more than it does the bottom in society," he said.

"And that's the fact so I'm not surprised when you hear prime ministers, presidents across the globe saying 'I think it would be beneficial.' Because it will be very much beneficial for them. But for people day to day, I think that it's a change, step in the right direction. It could be."

With the referendum just weeks away, Nutini insists Scots need to make it their duty to vote and not just complain about lack of change.

He said: "I think it's too easy to sit back on your comfy chair and in your comfy house and say 'Well that's what should happen.' And then when push comes to shove back away, back away and just regress into the shadows. I think it's, it's undoubtedly it would be a step forward morally and but you know, it will cause, it won't be easy."

Rock legend David Bowie, Harry Potter author JK Rowling and Comedian Eddie Izzard have publicly backed the Better Together campaign.
