Plan B says shows like The X Factor make fame a priority instead of music
Singer Plan B has revealed that he will never be involved in any televised vocal talent contests because the focus is in the wrong place.
Speaking to Shortlist, the 'She Said' hitmaker explained that musical talent and artistic integrity are more important than feeding the role of celebrity, which is exactly what programmes like The X Factor base themselves on:
No disrespect to anyone involved in those shows, but all they do is boost your profile as a celebrity. There are a lot of pop acts with just a pretty face and a half-decent voice. They don't even write their own s**t."
"I'm lucky enough to have a gift that allows me to create things from nothing: music, films, fictional characters. Others don't have that, so their work goes into their image as a celebrity."
