Once upon a time X Factor winner James Arthur, has once again used social media to embarrass himself with stupid comments. The talent contest “SINGER” still hasn’t learned the lesson that if you don’t have anything nice/constructive to say, then don’t say anything at all.
The “FREELANCE” singer (who was recently “RELEASED” from his contract with Simon Cowell’s record label Syco) used Twitter to express his opinions about the acts performing at this year’s Glastonbury Festival, describing acts as “mediocre” MTV UK reports.
Arthur’s first Tweet said, “ITS SAD THAT I’LL PROBABLY NEVER PLAY GLASTONBURY BECAUSE OF THE FORMAT I WAS DISCOVERED.. HAS ANYONE FROM XFACTOR EVER PLAYED IT?”
But he didn’t stopped there, with his second Tweet things got a bit shady when he posted this bitter comment, “ESPECIALLY SAD WHEN YOU SEE HOW MEDIOCRE SOME OF THESE ACTS ARE LIVE!! #verybitter.” which has now been deleted not long after it got posted.
Although he didn’t mention any acts directly, the talented line-up included names like:
Metallica – band who’s been in the industry for 33 years, they have more than 13 albums released, 9 Grammy Awards, 5 consecutive albums début at number 1 on the Billboard 200, with album sales of more than 120 million records worldwide, they have toured the UK many times, played in all major festivals and they have written some of the most iconic songs in rock ‘n roll history.
Kelis – A real singer-songwriter, the iconic song Milkshake was a hit worldwide, she was nominated for two Grammy Awards and she has 10 top ten hits in the UK alone.
Lana Del Rey – She has 3 successful albums, her first album reached number 1 in nine countries, received platinum awards in 14 and has sold over 5 million copies. Her second album released recently debuted at number 1 in 12 countries including the UK, selling 880,000 copies in its first week, worldwide. She’s talented, she’s a musician, an artist.
Just to clarify, I’m not a Metallica, Kelis or Lana Del Rey crazy fan, I love music in general and when an artist is talented, credit must be given.
In my opinion, he should wait until he has a couple of successful albums out there before trying to diss real acts.
People who (aspired to) live in glass houses, shouldn’t throw stones…
