English singer and songwriter Jake Bugg recently made some negative comments about global superstars One Direction and they did not go down too well with the One Direction fans. Now, Jake has explained his comments but defends what he said at the same time.
Bugg told Gigwise, "With the One Direction thing you know, it weren’t personal. Someone said they were like The Beatles, which I thought, you know, is ridiculous. The thing is about The Beatles is they wrote great songs, so it’s not a personal thing, it could be about any band."
He added, "Some people do play it safe and it works for some people. For me, if someone asks me something I’m gonna give my most honest and truthful answer and I’m not afraid to give my opinion, as long as that doesn’t involve anyone personally. I don’t mind speaking about me personally, but anyone else that’s just unfair."
While comparing One Direction to The Beatles does seem a bit extreme, the boys are currently enjoying huge success on a global scale. One Direction are on their Up All Night World tour and will release the One Direction movie This Is Us in August.
