Some crazy music news from this weekend, as James Arthur has some savaged comments about some of the biggest name in music at the moment, including Justin Bieber and Zayn Malik.
James Arthur won the UK singing contest, X Factor, back in 2012. James is now suggesting the likes of Zayn Malik and Justin Bieber’s music is a bit too similar to his own.
James Arthur has said to The Sun: “I think Justin Bieber and Zayn have both been listening to me a lot and they basically wanna be me. There’s a couple of tracks of Zayn’s where he ad libs. I asked Louis Tomlinson whether he’s been listening to me and he said ‘Yeah, he’s been lurking’.”
He has also speaking about artists like Ed Sheeran, suggesting that their music careers have benefited from financial help from their families
“I’m not saying none of these guys are talented, but people think Ed Sheeran crawled off a couch and lived on the street or something but him, Ellie Goulding they all come from Suffolk, Surrey, Richmond . . . they come from support.”
He goes on to say, “I think Sam Smith’s dad got a huge loan or something to help his career. Those things can help artists get attention but I guess my song ‘Say You Won’t Let Go’ proved it’s about the song.”
James Arthur has recently taken to his Twitter to say this interview is out of context though
An interview I did recently in which I talk about other artists has been completely twisted. So ridiculously out of context. AGAIN.
