James Arthur seems to think that Zayn Malik and Justin Bieber are copying his music. It looks like he assumes that his music is such a great inspiration for the chart-topping singers. The "Impossible" hitmaker literally said, "I think Justin Bieber and Zayn have both been listening to me a lot and they basically wanna be me."
In an interview with The Sun, James claimed that he even asked Zayn's former bandmate Louis Tomlinson to make sure he was right. "I asked Louis Tomlinson whether he's (Zayn) been listening to me and he said, 'Yeah, he's been lurking'," he said.
Not only Justin and Zayn, the controversial "The X Factor" winner even slammed Ed Sheeran and Ellie Goulding, suggesting that their success was from "support." He continued, "I'm not saying none of these guys are talented, but people think Ed Sheeran crawled off a couch and lived on the street or something but him, Ellie Goulding... they all come from Suffolk, Surrey, Richmond... they come from support (rich parents)."
James then went for Sam Smith, saying that Sam's father had to get a loan to help Sam's career. "I think Sam Smith's dad got a huge loan or something to help his career. Those things can help artists get attention but I guess my song 'Say You Won't Let Go' proved it's about the song," he bragged.James Arthur is the winner of 2012's "The X Factor", and he is currently busy preparing his upcoming tour. His nine-date tour will kick off in Leeds on Thursday, November 16 and end in Bournemouth on Thursday, November 30.
