The Sun has published an interview with "Say You Won't Let Go" singer-songwriter James Arthur who didn't hold back his thoughts on fellow artists!
First, the former X Factor winner reportedly accused certain male solo artists of copying his sound.
"I think Justin Bieber and Zayn have both been listening to me a lot and they basically wanna be me," he was quoted to have said. "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.'"
Meanwhile, he had this to say about other British hitmakers: "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."
"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.'
But according to James on Twitter, his comments were taken out of context!
