James Blunt Gets to the Point

Many times over the years we've heard male rock and pop stars, say they love playing music for the female attention their chosen profession attracts. James Blunt is no exception.

At the Novella Awards last month, James addressed critics who have been saying his song "You're Beautiful" is overplayed. When asked if he himself ever tired of the tune, James retorted:

'I don't have to listen to it, I'm the one who sings it. And it's continued to get me laid."

James continued this week to talk about the benefits of stardom:

"Sometimes we have people flashing us, and that's great fun. The other trick I've learned is that if you tell an audience, 'Sorry, I was distracted by a girl flashing me,' loads of other people start flashing you too."

Nice work if you can get it. Oh, and besides the random flashers, James has been spending time with the gorgeous Petra Nemcova.
