On one episode of 2020’s edition of The Great British Bake Off, contestants had to make a bust cake in tribute to a celebrity they particularly admire.

David Bowie and Blink-182’s Tom DeLonge were two of the icons chosen to replicate in cake form. Responding to his edible version, DeLonge said it reminded him of a time when he “did a few hundred adult films,” while Bowie’s son Duncan Jones poked fun at the effort to replicate his father, posting a comparison to the infamously botched restoration of the Jesus Ecce Homo fresco painting in 2012.

Dizzee Rascal released his most recent album ‘E3 AF’ last October. Speaking to NME for a recent cover feature around the release of ‘E3 AF’, Dizzee said the new album is “making a statement” that he’s “a fucking serious rapper”.

“I’m trying to give you all sides of me,” he added of the EP. “With ‘Raskit’, I purposely didn’t have no one else on there. It was making a statement. That’s what that was about. Then the EP ‘Don’t Gas Me’ was where I got back into producing so it’s a bit of a taste. Now on this album, we’re in full swing.”
