Musician denies her sprog is named Ickitt

MIA has denied that she has named her baby boy Ickitt following media reports about her recently-born child’s moniker.

Yesterday (March 6) reports began circulating about the unusual name, prompting the musician, who gave birth on February 11, to post a blog on her MySpace page, Myspace.com/mia, quashing the rumours.

Blogging in her customary capital letters she wrote: “MY BABY IS NOT CALLED ICKITT, PICKIT OR LICKIT THANK YOU VERY MUCH TO ALL THE HOLLYWOOD PRESS. HES A BABY , HE DONT NEED PRESS!

“I DIDNT RELEASE THE BABY NAME BECAUSE I DIDNT THINK IT WAS NEWS!!!!

“BUT I WILL BE BACK WITH SOMETHING NEWS WORTHY SOON , TILL THEN GO PICK ON APPLE [daughter of Coldplay‘s Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow], SATCHEL [daughter of Tonya Linette Lewis and Spike Lee] AND MOON UNIT [daughter of Frank Zappa and Adelaide Gail Sloatman].”

She signed off by writing: “LOTS OF LOVE STICKIT!!”
