"I don't want to be in this business for 20 years, basically," she says, which is odd: her debut single Kiss Kiss was released in Australia only this week.
"I don't want to be 35 and still popping out songs in little mini-skirts and la-la-la," says the 19-year-old.
"I'd rather do the business side of things. I'd like to do this for six or seven years if I can. I don't want to be doing it half-arsed with semi-decent tracks and average albums.
"I'd rather stay really up there and as soon as that starts dropping off, let someone else have a shot and I'll just sink into the background."
In the tradition of her predecessors, like Minogue and Natalie Imbruglia, Valance will soon leave the cast of Neighbours and will immediately relocate to England to pursue her music.
