Dizzee Rascal quite enjoys contemplating the fact that we may have been “genetically modified by aliens”.
Talking to The Guardian about his love of 70s theorist Zecharia Sitchin, he said: ”It’s far-fetched, but like only as far-fetched as every religion out there that everyone kills each other for and enslaves the world for.”
“He just includes aliens. Basically ['basically'] we were genetically modified by aliens. I’m not saying I believe any of his stuff, I’m saying it’s refreshing to hear something else,” he added.
Talking of possible aliens, he also expressed his frustration at the fact that will.i.am ‘et al’ have basically ripped off ‘Bonkers’.
“We took ‘Bonkers’ around and they weren’t ready for it,” he said, “and now that’s what everyone’s doing, and every big producer I meet, like will.i.am, talks about how they were influenced by ‘Bonkers’ and it’s like, oh, for fuck’s sake, do you know what I mean?”
Oh we do Dizzee.
