James Blunt says he isn't earnest
Los Angeles: Singer James Blunt says he's not earnest, suggesting his music gives a distorted picture of what he's really like.
The 40-year-old is in the midst of a career rival following the release of his fourth studio album, “Moon Landing”, earlier this year, and Blunt concedes that the broad perception of him is markedly different from the reality, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
Reflecting on his career, he said: "I probably suffered from over-play of over-emotional songs. I found in my writing that I could express emotions that as an everyday person I have no interest in expressing. These strange things that girls talk about called feelings."
Blunt, who was once a member of the British army, said fame has barely made an impression on his character.
"I'm a fairly unaffected human being. I'm easy to talk to, I hope. I'm not too bothered about the clothes I'm wearing. I've been misquoted in interviews as to appear earnest. Which I am not,” he added.
