Plan B has said that he is not prepared "to suck cock" in order to break America.

The singer, speaking in the Metro after winning three Ivor Novello awards yesterday (May 19), said he also believed he was "too white for the black radio stations and too black for white radio stations."

Asked about how he rated his chances of breaking America, he responded by saying: "It just seems to be a lot of cock sucking that has to go on in order to get your music to get played to the masses and I'm just not prepared to suck cock really."

The singer, whose real name is Ben Drew, added that he believed radio stations in America were struggling to understand his sound. He added: "I'm too white for the black radio stations and I'm too black for white radio stations so nobody knows where to place me."

Plan B, who is currently working on the follow up to 'The Defamation Of Strickland Bands', has also released a new version of his track 'Hard Times'. The song has been re-recorded to feature guest vocals from Elton John and Paloma Faith and the proceeds from it are to be given to the relief efforts in Japan and Pakistan.
