X Factor’s Leona Lewis Sees James Cameron’s Avatar As A Message For Hypocrites

leona-lewis-earth-wardenAVATAR is James Cameron’s huge budget, carbon burning look at the future of mankind. Before we get to what X Factor singer Leona Lewis thinks of it the film for which she sings the theme song I See You, let’s hear from James Cameron. Says he – brace yourselves:

I see it as a broader metaphor, not so intensely politicised as some would make it, but rather that’s how we treat the natural world as well. There’s a sense of entitlement — ‘We’re here, we’re big, we’ve got the guns, we’ve got the technology, we’ve got the brains, we therefore are entitled to every damn thing on this planet’.

“That’s not how it works and we’re going to find out the hard way if we don’t wise up and start seeking a life that’s in balance with the natural cycles of life on earth.”

To restore the balance Cameron has helpfully created a hi-tech, fossil fuel–fed electronic look at the figure.

He flew in to promote Avatar in London. Time now to hear from Leona Lewis. You last saw Lewis on the X Factor final. She was the one dressed as giant goldfish, stood beneath shafts of light before a 60-ft wide jumbo screen (turned on) singing into a microphone. You might have seen her on your clockwork tellies. Says she:

“People are too selfish to stop the things that have caused global warming now.”

Maybe they’re just living their dream in being an international singing star?

“They care about the things I’m passionate about – nature, the planet, the environment. This song required a powerful performance so I had to find an emotional connection. I found one to them.”

Save the planet! Watch the film! Man the lifeboats!

I was a huge fan of Titanic and went to see it three times…

The icebergs are coming!
