It’s fair to say that singer, producer, writer and granddad clothes-wearing Labrinth has made a name for himself over the last couple of years. With this success it has become more apparent that the Hackney-born star isn’t one to shy away from getting his point across even if it means upsetting his boss!
The 23-year-old Earthquake singer revealed that he refused Simon Cowell’s offer to write songs for the X Factor contestants despite being on Cowell’s record label Syco. Labrinth told the Daily Star:
Simon Cowell may be my manager but I’m not going to work with any of the musicians from The X Factor… Simon did say a few things to me about working with some of the artists but he knows I’m not into the idea. I’m fine about always being linked to Simon because that’s the way the music industry works
It was only last week when the Earthquake singer threw a hissy fit on Twitter after being called a rapper, which came months after his grime snub claiming that genre is ‘uneducated’ caused some controversy.
Is it me or does it look like we have a diva in the making?
