US label Atlantic Records wants Estelle to have surgery on her teeth to help her break into the American charts, say reports.
Her bosses also want her to ditch the boyish haircut she has in her ‘American Boy’ video and would like to give her image a complete overhaul, according to The Sun.
“The American executives are adamant she makes a lot of significant changes,” said a source. “They want rid of her tomboy hair and want her to get her teeth fixed.
“Estelle is not happy. She feels her teeth and the rest of her look are a big part of her character.”
The R&B star has spent the last three weeks at number one on the UK singles chart.
The truth of the matter is anyone’s guess, however it does raise a few interesting questions. Do you feel Estelle should comply with what the label want of her or refuse? Is this another (unfortunate) case of image over talent?
