James Blunt has charmed millions of fans around the world with his touching lyrics and heartfelt tunes, but some take their fandom a bit too far. One stalker took her claims about the infamous "You're Beautiful" song to a whole new level!
James Blunt's Stalker
The 46-year-old British musician James Blunt is the man behind the 2005 record-breaking hit "You're Beautiful" about seeing an "angel" who "smiled at me on the subway." Unfortunately for the talented singer, an American stalker believed he was singing about her!
James told The Sun, "She sent me a detailed 50-page document about how I've been stalking her, and that's a little frightening. It was quite scary. She's pretty fervent that she's the woman for me on the subway." Luckily, he is able to prove that the woman the song is about is not the stalker, so he does not owe any dues to the American fan.
The father of 2 explained, "I had to point out I wasn't on the subway in 1984, which is when she claimed she saw me... I would have been ten years old, and the first time I visited the States was in 2002. So that was all a bit strange." He even said, "because she is such a fan, we have met at different stages, at various gigs or whatever."
James Blunt's "You're Beautiful"
James had actually told Oprah in an interview that the song is "about seeing my ex-girlfriend on the subway in London with her new man, who I didn't know existed. She and I caught eyes and lived a lifetime in that moment, but didn't do anything about it."
He joked about the song to the Huffington Post, "You get labeled with these things like, 'Oh, James Blunt. Isn't he just a soft romantic?' Well, f*** that. No, I'm not. 'You're Beautiful' is not this soft romantic f***ing song. It's about a guy who's high as a f***ing 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."
The fun and hilarious singer has grown in popularity due to his hilarious one-liner retorts on Twitter and is releasing his first book, How To Be A Complete And Utter Blunt. He jokes that this new book is "something good to read while you're sitting on the loo."
The singer and his wife Sofia Wellesley are also known to be good friends with Princess Beatrice and Eugenie, and were even a part of a rumor that Princess Eugenie accidentally sliced Ed Sheeran's face while pretending to knight James!
We can't wait to read his book and hear his new music! Hopefully, his stalkers tame a bit.
