She also talks about the state of pop music...
In an interview with Spotify, Tulisa Contostavios said that she wants to do a song with the Prodigy. Here are highlights:
On who she most wants to work with: "I've always wanted to do a tune with the Prodigy because I'm such a massive fan."
On the state of pop music in 2012: "I think it's been altered so many times. You know when something just gets diluted again and again and again? I don't really know what pop is anymore. It's become a combination of pop, urban, old school and dance - there's a little bit of everything now. I think ‘urban' has come forward a lot more. It's funny, what our idea of urban was how ever many years ago is now more commercial, but if we were to go over to America with what we call urban music they would look at us and go, "but this is cheese pop!" I remember going over to America with N-Dubz and they were like "what do you do?" and we said we were an urban British act and they'd hear our music and go [puts on American accent], 'you're not urban.'"
On what she listened to as a kid: "I listened to everything. I was very urban. I loved my old school R&B but at the same time I loved garage, I loved grime, I loved hip-hop, just pretty much everything urban. Up until the age of 11 it was all Spice Girls, Michael Jackson, Backstreet Boys, Eminem and then after 11 it just took a transition into everything urban."
