Multi-million selling singer Dido believes her music is "totally underground" - and only gets criticised as "uncool" because it's so popular.

The British star claims she only started getting bad reviews when her 1999 album NO ANGEL became an overnight sensation after superstar rapper Eminem used a sample from the track THANK YOU.

Dido says, "The funniest thing that happened was that up until a million records, I never had one bad review. Not one.

"Then as soon as it began to cross into the mainstream, they all started coming. It's hilarious.

"No Angel is a total underground record. Always was. It's not my fault it sold 12 million copies.

"And if that's what makes it uncool, then what am I gonna do? I'd rather loads of people heard it."
