Singer Natasha Bedingfield is disappointed her feminine charms continually fail to impress record bosses - she's forced to tell dirty jokes instead.
The 25-year-old scored a UK chart hit with debut song SINGLE in 2004 and quickly replicated her success in America.
However, Bedingfield recalls her road to stardom has been more difficult than fans suspect because her good looks and musical talent aren't enough to convince industry heavyweights.
She says, "When I'm working with the producers - they're all male - my jokes are rude. You have to be one of the boys.
"You have to be stronger to get things done."
