First it was Dappy slagging off The X Factor, despite the fact his cousin and former bandmate Tulisa’s a judge.
And now Plan B’s having a pop as well.
Not only has the ill Manors star been criticising the talent show for being about image and celebrity rather than making great music, he’s also ruled out ever appearing on it.
“No disrespect to anyone involved in those shows, but all they do is boost your profile as a celebrity,” he told Shortlist.
“There are a lot of pop acts with just a pretty face and a half-decent voice. They don't even write their own shit. I'm lucky enough to have a gift that allows me to create things from nothing: music, films, fictional characters. Others don't have that, so their work goes into their image as a celebrity.”
“So, if I have a gift like this, wouldn't I be neglecting it if I appeared on a show like The X Factor?”
Licking Jay-Z’s arse
Plan B – real name Benjamin Paul Ballance-Drew – also claimed that the reason he turned down the chance to work with Jay-Z was because it had been set up by industry people rather than personally by Mr Z.
“I want people like [Jay-Z] to come to me and say, ‘I like what you're doing, let's collaborate'. Otherwise, I'd just be licking their arse,” he said.
“Music should be a personal thing, the minute you start thinking, 'Who can I get in with?' you're basically saying you don't give a f**k about artistic expression. You only give a f**k about money.”
Crumbs. Someone got out of bed the wrong side this morning…
