MIA, the pop star, has taken a break from making her pop records to issue a plea:
"I'm not really a popstar. I don't think I'm popular enough to be a proper popstar. I prefer being called a rapper."Yeah. I prefer being called Susan Sassypants, but we don't get what we want in life, do we?
MIA's worry is that she's just not popular enough to be called a pop star.
(Actually, that's kind-of true: it's interesting to remember that she's never had a top ten album anywhere except Norway and - with the exception of that one off the film with the bloke from Skins winning Millionaire - her singles performance is equally slow.)
