James Blunt Attacked For ‘Soap In The Shower’ Homophobic Comments

For the second time in two weeks singer James Blunt is making headlines. Sadly for Blunt the headlines he is making have little to do with his music and are therefore for all the wrong reasons. On this occasion the Mail is reporting that Blunt is being slammed for making remarks on social media platform Twitter that many interpret as homophobic.

Pop star Blunt has faced a backlash after he tweeted the cover of this weeks New Statesman magazine. The cover features British prime-minister David Cameron, London Mayor Boris Johnson, Chancellor George Osborne and other members of the Bullingdon Club. The Bullingdon Club is an exclusive but unofficial all-male students’ dining club at Oxford University, noted for its wealthy members, grand banquets and boisterous rituals, such as vandalizing of restaurants and college rooms.

About The Sound of Summer

Hi, I am Alan. I live in Broadstone, Dorset with my wife, Shirley, my son, Ryan and two dogs called Bailey and Jasper. I have recently retired after working in the Armed Forces and in Public Service since 1977 so I now have a bit more time to do the things I love. Music is a huge part of my life and always has been. I have a broad taste in music and can find something to enjoy in most styles of music. I have always been attracted to music which has something to say, is outside the mainstream and is perhaps a bit rebellious. I guess my early influences were late 1970's Punk and new wave bands, especially those who came out of Northern Ireland where I grew up. I loved Stiff Little Fingers, The Undertones, Rudi, Starjets etc but also bands like The Ramones, The Clash, The Jam and so on. I like singer songwriters including Van Morrison, Springsteen, Neil Young & Bob Dylan and in recent years I have become more interested in folk and acoustic music but I also love the sort of high drive energetic Folk/Punk music delivered by bands like The Levellers, Leatherat, Ferocious Dog and many others who frequent the UK Festival scene. I have long since lost the desire to spend my holidays laying around in the sun and these days am much more likely to be found in a muddy field somewhere in the UK during the festival season.
