Jarvis Cocker says David Cameron’s claims of seeing his backside are untrue
Jarvis Cocker has today defended himself over David Cameron’s claims he saw him expose his backside at the 1996 BRIT Awards.
The Pulp frontman famously caused controversy by gate-crashing Michael Jackson’s performance of ‘Earth Song’ at the ceremony, an incident which was referred to by the Tory leader after answering a question posed by Cocker in The Guardian last year.
He said: "There we are. Not as punchy as Jarvis Cocker on Michael Jackson, but it's the best I can do. I was there that night, at the Brit Awards. I saw him led away. I saw his bum."
However, speaking to the same newspaper, the ‘Common People’ star said that Cameron had got his facts wrong:
“I'd just like to point out that if anybody cares to look at the video evidence, at no point was my bare backside revealed.”
"So therefore the fact he says he's seen it totally negates the credence of what he said in the previous part of the answer about derivatives and futures. I'm glad I've got that off my chest – it's been bothering me, that."
