Matt Cardle’s Book Is A Journey Into Obscurity

by | 20th, December 2010

MATT Cardle, the X Factor winner, was signing pages of his book Matt Cardle: My Story at Waterstones in London. From being a ordinary bloke who could sing – he was a painter and decorator from Essex, no less – Matt is now a shiny popstar with a book and a message. His watery version of Biffy Clyro’s Many Of Horror’ is at top of the charts. His hair is no longer beneath a cap. And so begins the end of the chap you liked and followed on the telly.

X Factor winners don’t last because they are X Factor winners. They have been plumped, processed, stuffed and auto-tuned in Simon Cowell’s sausage factory until they are no longer the person you first saw on the magic box. They are interchangeable. You don’t support them. You support Team X Factor. The players can come and go.

Goodbye Matt Cardle. It was fun…
