Professor Green’s Hot House Party is on heat TV tonight at 10pm. Here we look back at some of the most amazing things he’s ever said. (We were spoiled for choice.)
“I’m not a monkey with a box full of 50 pence pieces”
Some might say that was obvious to even a casual observer, but to clarify, Pro hates taking part in rap battles now he’s successful. So when asked if he ever accepted challenges these days, he said, “Not unless they want a punch in the face… If they asked politely I’d politely tell them to f**k off. Every time I do a radio or TV interview, they’re like, “You used to freestyle - so go on then”. And then the bit about the monkey.
“No one knows who Danny is. That's really shit that they dumped Will for him.”
Not a fan of The Voice after they hired Danny O’Donohue, Pro showed himself to be an unlikely Will Young supporter. “He would have been perfect for that job. He really knows what he is talking about when it comes to making music... I liked him.”
Well, we like David Beckham but we’re not crying because he’s not in the office. I like doesn’t always get.
“Being a cheating sl*tbag aside I actually feel sorry for Kristen Stewart, she may as well have cheated on Justin Bieber. #careersuicide”
Now then, “Professor”, that’s a dangling modifier. Read the sentence back and you’ll realise that you actually just referred to yourself as a cheating sl*tbag. Whatever a sl*tbag might be. Slotbag? Slatbag?
“Why would your own record label hinder you? Answers on a postcard.”
This week his own record label got on his wick. “I just can't help but question why some people have jobs. All I do is work, so I get extremely pissed off when people don't do theirs. How would you feel if a company taking 25% of your earnings weren't doing their jobs properly? Would you pay someone not doing their job?”
No, Pro, we wouldn’t. We’re totally firing our shoe psychic now.
“I'm over their heads like a bulimic on a see-saw”
...Oh dear. “bulimia is quite an intelligent eating disorder.” ...Oh dear oh dear. “It'd be easier just to chew food and spit it out but still, you get to eat whatever you want and stay skinny. #winning” ...Oh dear oh dear oh dear. “Queue all the people who start telling me how insensitive I am and how bulimia jokes aren’t funny yadda yadda yadda.” ...Oh dear to infinity. He apologised after that last one. The others still all stand.
