M.I.A. claims she is a terrible singer.

The 'Paper Planes' rapper - who is currently recording her third album, the follow up to 2007's 'Kala' - is astonished that she has carved out a successful career because she was always mocked for her lack of vocal talent.

said she is well known for being "tone deaf" and has no idea how she made it as a musician.

She said: "I used to walk down the corridor singing whatever was on the radio like 'Wonderwall' or whatever, and I was so off. It was so bad. Everyone used to notice. I was totally well known for being tone deaf at college."

The 31-year-old English star - whose real name is Maya Arulpragasam - insists she never strived for stardom and is amazed by how easily she achieved success in the US.

She said: "It's so strange because I didn't even try. American's got it by not getting it in a way. They have fewer preconceptions than in England. I used to try and explain my viewpoint to English people and they just didn't understand.

"Now I've got this international platform and it's so important to make a statement because that st is so fking rare. It's so rare to have anyone say anything these days."
