He’s only been X Factor champion for two weeks but James Arthur has already managed to upset a former winner! The 24-year-old managed to offend 2010 victor Matt Cardle, who hit back in spectacular fashion!
In an interview, James said Matt had not ‘released any decent material,’ leading to Matt laying into his chart rival. The Southampton-born singer told The Sun: “I told James, you're very talented but you haven't sold two million records yet, which I have. You haven't had two top ten albums yet, which I've had. Don't start mouthing off before you've even really left the show.”
“I doubt he's even listened to my albums. It's a shame and I hope it doesn't do him too much damage.”
The When We Collide singer went on to say that he thinks James has insulted previous X Factor winners too, claiming: “Not only has he offended me but he's offended every other person that's won the X Factor and everyone who works or has written on these albums.”
“That's some of the best songwriters in the world and he's now rubbished their work. So it's a pretty s*** thing for him to have said.”
Matt also had a sly pop at X Factor judge Tulisa after her debut album flopped and his latest offering, Fire, peaked at 8 in the charts. He said: “She couldn't have had more support. She was all over the radio, X Factor every weekend, she had her performances, adverts and she reaches No35? It's just a massive, massive victory for me.”
Meow! Saucer of milk for Mr Cardle!
