OUTKAST star ANDRE 3000 attributes his phenomenal success in music, acting and fashion to his prolific work ethic - and because he never gives anything less than his best shot.

The HEY YA! singer - real name ANDRE BENJAMIN - has a role in Get Shorty sequel Be Cool and is now focusing on fashion design and further movie parts.

He says, "It's crazy, I just like creating, be it film, music, designing clothes, which I'm concentrating on right now, or writing treatments and screenplays.

"Whatever genre it is, I want to do my best. I am a music artist. I am a film artist. But I want to be an artist."
