Not that this changes any of us from wanting to punch each other in the face upon hearing the first couple notes from James Blunt‘s insufferable 2003 dying-wale single, “You’re Beautiful,” but the 43-year-old singer just went into rage mode in a Huffington Post interview about the ‘true’ meaning of the song.

Dude’s got some new residue of the boilerplate pop music out — The Afterlove; hence the Huff Post reason for prodding him — in which he’s still trying to cast off that shadow from being voted more annoying than traffic cops, but we digress. First the set-up:

“Everyone goes, ‘Ah, he’s so romantic. I want ‘You’re Beautiful’ as my wedding song.’ These people are fucked up,” said Blunt.

And then, ladies and gentlemen, the take-down:

“You get labeled with these things like, ‘Oh, James Blunt. Isn’t he just a soft romantic?’ Well, fuck that. No, I’m not. ‘You’re Beautiful’ is not this soft romantic fucking song. It’s about a guy who’s high as a fucking kite on drugs in the subway stalking someone else’s girlfriend when that guy is there in front of him, and he should be locked up or put in prison for being some kind of perv.”

So essentially, “You’re Beautiful” is Blunt’s “Creep.” Except still one of the worst songs ever recorded.

This really shouldn’t come as that much as a surprise, as Blunt is pretty transparent with the ‘high as a fucking kite’ line in the second verse of the song:

Yes, she caught my eye
As we walked on by
She could see from my face that I was,
Fuckin’ high
And I don’t think that I’ll see her again
But we shared a moment that will last till the end

But people are sometimes insufferable as James Blunt’s song that has sold over three million copies in the States alone to date. Especially those people that would play this at their wedding. What’s wrong with you, people? Get a soul.

All said, here’s to you, James Blunt, for showing some teeth. But dude, pick up a fucking guitar and a distortion pedal with that rage next time instead of creating this crap.

Meanwhile, there’s a woman in England being jailed for playing Ed Sheeran‘s “Shape of You” on repeat. So at least the music world corrects itself from devolution. If only we could say the same about our current administration.
