MYXCLUSIVE: James Morrison: "I Don't Think One Direction Are Paving The Way For Anything"


A fellow Brit is not a fan of the British boys, One Direction!

In our MYXclusive interview with James Morrison last May, he has expressed that he is not impressed with what the boys have accomplished so far. In terms of the rise of British artists in the global music scene, he's got his eyes on Adele who he thinks is one of the "good female singers", who can revive their place on the international charts. 

For James, Adele has "...heartfelt songs that mean something, that aren't autotuned," and care less about the boyband. 

James have been open about his dislike for boy groups and the show "The X Factor" where the One Direction first started. He called "The X Factor" UK contestants, JLS, in 2011 "the worst singers I've ever heard." The reality singing show is also a bad influence to kids because, "That show sends out the message that you can be famous for doing f*** all and that you can succeed even if you're not a good singer," as said to metro.co.uk.  

The three British artists have all been recognized with their music both in UK and all over the world. James Morrison is a singer-songwriter with hits such as "You Give Me Something" and "Broken Strings" (a duet with Nelly Furtado). He has won a Brit Award in 2007 for Best Male Artist when he was just 21 years old. Adele has 3 Brits and 8 Grammys under her belt at 24 years old giving us hits such as "Rolling In The Deep" and "Someone Like You". The boys of One Direction hasn't won Grammys yet but have won a Brit Award for their single, "What Makes You Beautiful" and has earned themselves 26 more awards from around the world.

    He won that award when he was 21? HA! What a joke! The boys are just 17-20 years old when they won the Brit awards! They won 3 moon men on the VMA's this year and that dude thinks he's so famous! He's so mean! I think he's just jealous of how famous and perfect One Direction is... Well, more hotties for me!

    heard 1D sing in live and they're not as bad as Morrison tried to say here. As a person who's been in this industry for several years, he should be promoting music and welcoming new artists not breaking hearts and shattering confidence and dreams out of youth. Those boys are driven and determined of the path they've chosen and they're proving to everyone that we can make changes in life if we want change to happen. I think its a very beautiful reminder for everyone who wants to live for th
