Fashion-conscious British rapper Chipmunk once turned down a job on a fish counter because he couldn't bring himself to wear the store's unflattering headgear.

The "Oopsy Daisy" hitmaker was offered a role in a branch of U.K. supermarket Sainsbury's before he shot to fame, and even though he needed the work, the hip-hop star turned the job down because of the compulsory uniform he would have to wear.

He says, "I was 16, my brother was working in Sainsbury's, I had good grades so my CV (resume) was nice. I handed my CV in and they offered me a job in the fish department. I just remember when we used to go into Sainsbury's, we always walked past the fish department and thought... I don't want to wear that hat!"

Chipmunk is now teaming up with British store bosses to perform at Sainsbury's Super Saturday, a concert featuring acts including and in support of the London 2012 Paralympic Games. The gig takes place in London on September 10.
