James Blunt backs Justin Bieber: ‘Paparazzi Aren’t Friendly’
It ain’t easy being Bieber, at least according to British singer-songwriter James Blunt.
While in Toronto promoting his fourth studio album Moon Landing, he added a little perspective to the Justin Bieber’s multiple toubles that has grabbed international headlines.
The 39-year-old star said:
I think if I had cameramen following me around capturing the things that every 19 year old is doing, it would kind of f—- over the fun of being that age.
I’ve been in situations where paparazzi have chased me in cars. These guys aren’t friendly and they’re not asking to pose for a picture. They are hurling abuse at you because they want a response or incite a reaction, because it will get them a better picture. They’re not saying “Hey Blunt,” they’re saying whatever rhymes with Blunt.
It’s a strange world. We are the ones that read about him (Justin Bieber), and we buy the magazines and every time we do, another paparazzi goes and chases.
