Lionel Richie says he doesn't need any help in the bedroom from his fellow artists.

The 65-year-old star, who previously turned to Sting and Coldplay to help him seduce women, prefers to play instrumental music when he's being romantic these days, as he finally realised he ''can do it alone.''

Speaking to 'Ireland AM,' in an upcoming interview that will air on TV3 in Ireland on Monday (29.09.14), the 'All Night Long' hitmaker said: ''If there's lyrics, that's wrong. I want a sexy classical guitar, a very sexy piano and maybe some strings but I always said to myself, and now that I'm a little older, do I really need any help in the bedroom by having my fellow artists come in and help me out? No! So Sting, stay out of the room because I've finally realised I can do this alone and I have enough going on!!''

The five-time Grammy winner occasionally appears on his daughter Nicole Richie's reality TV series, 'Candidly Nicole,' and thinks it gives fans a very real insight into their lives and relationship.

The 'Endless Love' singer, who will kick off his 31-date European tour next March, said: ''You get to see her humour, her happy family and that the grandkids are finally realising that 'pop-pop' [Lionel] maybe sings for a living!''
