James Blunt Gets Absolutely Roasted On Aussie Show

James Blunt took part in a radio show, which saw him being insulted for four minutes and I really can't think of a person better suited to such an interview.

James, whose real name is James Hillier Blount, appeared on Australian chat show The Weekly to take part in the segment 'Hard Chat', with Aussie comic Tom Glesson.

If you're unfamiliar with 'Hard Chat', it's basically a chance for Gleeson to take the piss out of a celebrity. Blunt is an absolute prime candidate.

Firstly, he loves a bit of self-deprecation, doesn't he? You only need to check out his brilliant Twitter feed to see that:




Secondly, there's quite a lot to insult him on, isn't there?

Gleeson took the chance to mention Blunt's tweets, asking the singer: "You're really good at writing comebacks on Twitter, have you considered just writing good songs?"

To which Blunt replies, "Shit. I hadn't thought of that."

What's good about Blunt is, he's pretty much impossible to insult. When Gleeson goes in, Blunt just agrees.

"You were a judge on the X Factor where you criticised other people's music," Gleeson said.

"Isn't that the pot calling the kettle shit?"


"Therefore I'm very qualified to judge other people's music," Blunt replied.

"I think you have hit a nail on the head. We had Chris Isaac, who only liked music from the 50s. Me, who only liked my own music. And Dannii Minogue who didn't even like music at all."

Blunt also told Gleeson he is hoping ISIS will take responsibility for his music any day now.

Fair play for being a good sport.

You can see the full interview here, and it's definitely worth a watch.
