James Corden Says Something Truly Incredible About People At The Brits
FEEL free, at any point during this article, to tut to yourself “Cuh! Including yourself are we, Corden?”
James Corden has hit out at some of the “horrible” people who attended the Brit Awards while he was doing a very thorough job hosting the dreadful ceremony.
After four gigs, Corden decided to step down after the last one. Talking about his experiences at the annual hanging of pop music, during Michael McIntyre’s chat show, Corden was critical of some of the people who sit on the tables at the event.
“It was horrid,” Corden told McIntyre. “It is so much fun the week leading up to it and you get to see the bands, and then it is live and you are in this room full of people that don’t listen to anything you say. People who beg for a ticket turn up and pretend they are too cool to be there. They are all chatting, drinking and eating.”
Imagine! Imagine going to a room which is obviously going to filled with gasping shitweasels and, behold, you find out that they’re all gasping shitweasels.
So, how do these nasty people affect you while you’re presenting?
“It doesn’t feel like there is a TV show going on, it feels like a big social function being watched by the rest of people in the arena. You are doing it and people are walking past you, they know it is on TV.”
The struggle is real, folks.
Of course, these pointlessly lavish affairs are the music industry’s last attempt to inject some business-like glamour into an industry that is fast becoming more akin to a sprawling folk affair, with people deciding what they want and sharing it through their own channels, rather than pissing around waiting for record companies to release things and pay for the best promotion on radio and television.
In fact, if anything, televised award ceremonies are doing more harm when trying to convince consumers to buy, rather than lean on the torrents. Why? Because if you can afford to hire a ginormo-dome, fill it with bastard lackeys and wraps of mid-table cocaine, and afford to fly a whole bunch of bands into town without actually reflecting the world pop as it stands, you can certainly afford to drop your prices on physical products or, at the very least, stop whining about Spotify payments.
Meanwhile, the internet is abuzz with the kind of music TV hasn’t even heard of yet. If James Corden despairs of these shitehawks, you can only imagine what your average 15 thinks of them.
