N-Dubz star Dappy could be forced to ditch his trademark bobble hat in a bid to make it in the US.

The young rapper and bandmate Tulisa flew out to Los Angeles this weekend to meet Def Jam Music executives and plan their attempt to crack the America music market - and record bosses could be planning to give the band a makeover, according to The Sun.

A source told the newspaper: "Dappy wants to freshen up his look so is looking for a replacement - he's not sure what style to go for, but knows that nothing can be sacred, not even the hat which has been a huge hit with British fans."

The insider added: "Tulisa thinks nobody in the US would take her seriously as a big-boobed blonde. She wants to be seen as the next Mariah Carey, not the next Pamela Anderson."

Def Jam boss "LA" Reid is apparently keen to sign N-Dubz, but the band have had trouble setting up a meeting.

They had postpone the trip twice - once due to the snow and once because Reid was double-booked.

Now Dappy and Tulisa are in the US but on Saturday, poor Fazer tweeted: "Only Dappy n Tulisa have gone to LA - I will be at Deja Vu tonight in Bury St Edmunds."
