Dizzee Rascal wants to be like the superhero Superman, but can't get the hair style right

Dizzee Rascal wants to "be Superman" - but he doesn't think he could get the hairstyle right.

The 'Bonkers' hitmaker would love to be like the flying superhero - famed for wearing blue and red, a cape and wearing his pants on the outside of his trousers - but while he has no problem with this part of the look, the short-haired rapper cannot get his trademark single curl of black hair to look right.

He said: "I don't want superpowers, I want to be Superman. I think everyone always fancies themselves as Superman every now and then; you know, have his powers, put their pants on the outside and all that you know. The only problem I have is I find I can never quite get the curl on my forehead right."

If Dizzee was Superman, he'd also have his ability to fly, which could come in handy and help him find his collaborator Calvin Harris - who he has worked with on the tracks 'Dance Wiv Me' and 'Holiday' - for another collaboration.

He added: "I loved working with him but I can't get hold of him lately. If I could I'd be happy to collaborate with him again. I can't find him, he's all over the place right now."

The 'Superman Motion Picture Anthology', which sees the first four 'Superman' Films, starring Christopher Reeve, and the more recent 'Superman Returns', is out now on Blu-ray.
