SIR Bob Geldof's daughter Peaches is set to follow in her father's musical footsteps - by becoming a rap artist.

The ambitious teenager, who is inspired by contemporary female acts like Latina singer Jennifer Lopez, is planning her first record release as soon as she finishes her school education.

She says, "Until this month (MAR05), when I had my 16th birthday, I was too young to go to bars so I tended to spend my evenings rapping at my friends houses.

"I came to love it and I think developed a talent for it. When I leave school I plan to get a record deal, bring out an album and become a famous rap star.

"I want to become like Jennifer Lopez with a bit of hip-hop thrown in."
