As with much American R&B, N-Dubz's songs on Love.Live.Life tend to circle around the soap opera of their lives in the glass bowl of showbiz.

Music: I'm listening to lots of Freddie Mercury at the moment. My dad always played Queen when we were growing up, so he is a huge inspiration to me. His voice is killer. I'm also listening to Michael Bublé. I love his voice, the melodies, the way he writes music; he is a true talent. People will be surprised by what influences N-Dubz! Whilst we were in the studio we were listening to a lot of Phil Collins. Every song on his 'Hits' album is a classic, the man is a genius. We're not bothered about what people may think is cool – I just love good songs.

Music: My favourite track at the moment is "Rescue Me" by Skepta. I'm also really happy Kate Nash is back. I respect female artists who write their own music like I do with N-Dubz. I'm listening to everything from The Prodigy to old-school Madonna. On my iPod I've got a massive selection from grime and garage to modern R&B.

When you phone into a Radio 1 show to say you don't like the pop star they've got live in the studio with them, you don't expect said pop star to sneakily write down your mobile phone number, take it home with him and start sending you death threats. Yet this is exactly what happened last week, after Dappy from N-Dubz, an urban group who sell by the bucketload to the ringtone generation, took umbrage at a Lincolnshire woman calling him "vile" and "a little boy with a silly hat". According to The Sun, which reprinted his text messages, he told her she was going to die, called her a lot of names that they replaced with asterisks, and said that she would never be left alone until she apologised, which she refused to do. The 22-year-old Anglo-Greek rapper and songwriter, real name is Costas Dinos Contostavlos, has apologised to her.
