Flo Rida praises 'sexy' UK artists

Flo Rida has said he loved working with British stars Alexandra Burke and The Saturdays - especially because they're "sexy".
The US star collaborated with Alexandra on Bad Boys and with The Saturdays on Higher, and he only had good things to say about them.
"They're definitely talented, they have a passion and a love for music and it makes it even better the fact that they are sexy as well," he said.
But the rapper couldn't name a favourite, saying: "My favourite to work with was working with all of them because I'm inspired by working with new artists and their whole aura. When there's something great you always want it to rub off on you so it was a definite pleasure working with them."
Flo Rida features in new video game Def Jam Rapstar, whose makers are looking for next British rap star.
From January 1, players can upload their performances online, with the top-rated entrants battling it out at live regional qualifiers at HMV stores, then a live final.
The winner lands a contract with Flo Rida, Jay-Z and Missy Elliot's label Atlantic Records.
And the rapper had a few words of advice for those wanting to get into the industry: "Be aware that this is a business as well as something you can have fun with. Definitely always give it 200 per cent because there's always other artists out there".
