Free speech?

Rapper Speech Debelle has been booed after attempting to "rap" her way through Take That's 1993 hit Pray. A few months ago, she was the surprise winner of the Mercury Music Prize (even though the telecommunications company after which it was named ceased to exist ages ago - not her fault, of course).

Despite this success, hardly anybody has bought her album and this week she blamed her lack of sales on her record company.

But maybe it's simpler than that - perhaps not enough people think her music is any good?

Let's hope she can bounce back and convince her doubters of her talents.
