The Vamps, Busted and Rizzle Kicks on the last time they cried

The Huffington Post recently filmed a series of male music stars describing the last time they broke down for a mental health awareness initiative called Boys Do Cry. 

The likes of Busted, The Vamps and Rizzle Kicks all took part in the project, which is attempting to both challenge and shatter the harmful stereotype that men shouldn't be emotional. The Huffington Post article explains that "in 2014, male suicide accounted for some 76% of all suicides. It is the biggest killer of men under the age of 45."

Busted's James Bourne said: "In 'The Notebook', 'The Green Mile', 'Forrest Gump'..."

Jordan Stephens, of Rizzle Kicks fame, offered: "A week ago after watching one of these police videos of this black guy getting shot." His bandmate, Harley Alexander-Sule, added: "An hour before the show my therapist came to where I was to try and help/coach me through it and during that time I just burst into tears."

The Vamps' frontman Brad Simpson said: "I met up with an old school friend and we laughed until we cried." Drummer Tristan Evans added: "It was when my grandpa sadly passed away about three weeks ago."

Matt Willis, from Busted, said: "Probably when my daughter was born." His Busted bandmate, frontman Charlie Simpson said: "When I watched the film 'Dead Man Walking', with Sean Penn."
