M.I.A has stated that she turned down the chance to record a song for the Twilight soundtrack.
The Paper Planes singer told NME magazine: "They asked me - luckily Jimmy (Iovine, chairman of M.I.A's US label Interscope) had beef with the Twilight people, so he stepped in and told them to f*** off."
The outspoken 34-year old also revealed how she is fed up of being compared to Telephone singer Lady GaGa stating: "There's GaGa - people say we're similar, that we both mix all these things in the pot and spit them out differently, but she spits it out exactly the same."
She continued: "None of her music's reflective of how weird she wants to be or thinks she is. She models herself on Grace Jones and Madonna, but the music sounds like 20-year-old Ibiza disco, you know?"
"She's not progressive, but she's a good mimic. She sounds more like me than I f****** do! That's a talent and she's got a great team behind her, but she's the industry's last stab at making itself important - saying 'You need our money behind you, the endorsements, the stadiums'."
The singer-songwriter added: "Respect to her, she's kept a hundred thousand people working, but my belief is you Do It Yourself."
It seems we won't be seeing M.I.A at a Lady GaGa gig any time soon…
