Stormzy upset NME made him cover star for depression feature
Stormzy is upset that the NME has used quotes he gave to another publication and his image on their latest front cover to promote a feature on depression.
The free music magazine features Stormzy on its cover this week with the headline: 'Depression: It's time to talk. Wise words from Stormzy, Gaga, Bastille & more'.
The grime star tweeted: "You lot know I don't rant or open my mouth up for no reason but serious @NME magazine are the biggest bunch of sly, foul PAIGONS.
"I KNOW it will help others but just imagine a personal battle of yours being published on the front of a magazine without your permission.
"The reason I'm so angry is because NME have been begging me to be on their cover. I have refused. Then they do this.
"My issue is not about me speaking out about it. That is fine and I'm happy I'm able to help but (NME) have been foul here."
The NME responded by tweeting: "We used your image as we felt it would resonate most with our readers, and I can only apologise again that you didn't know ...'.
