MIA wouldn't want to be like Lily

Lily Allen isn't a good role model for MIA, says MIA:

"I don't understand why people make me want to make music that's a join-the-dots thing by numbers. I find it really difficult when people say, 'Aw, you should have made a song like Lily Allen, that would have been so great.'

"[My stuff] is dirty, it's scummy, it's got flies on it and it's got all the ink and the dirt and the blood and the sweat."

We'd love to meet an executive who signed MIA and then suggested that she try and do some fishcake reggae-pop, although it's an all-too-believable scenario.
