Following on from Barack Obama calling Kayne West a jackass, UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown has called Mika a knob.
My sources from Downing Street say that this is the start of a new initiative from the PM to tackle the entire music industry.
It is believed that Brown saw the positive reaction that Obama got for his outburst and decided to give it a go.
Sources tell me that Brown has started with more minor pop star to test the waters and see how the public react to this.
If all goes well then he hope by the end of the year to have called Mick Jagger a 'sausage jockey' and Bono a 'c*nt'.
