‘One Direction Must Know They’re Terrible’

Singer songwriter Jake Bugg was asked about people calling the former One Direction ‘rock stars’ because of their after-show antics: Bugg told ShortList: ‘Who the f**k is saying that? Oh, I’m pretty sure they have a good laugh. But it’s easy to, isn’t it? When you don’t have to write any songs.

People [call them the new Beatles] because they broke America, but that don’t mean a thing. I mean, [One Direction] must know that they’re terrible. They must know.. Calling them the new rock stars is a ridiculous statement. And people should stop making it. They’ll be forgotten because young girls will grow up’. He recently dismissed Mumford & Sons as ‘posh farmers with banjos. It’s my job to keep that X Factor s**t off the top of the charts.’

One Direction were reportedly snubbed by Mumford & Sons while backstage at the Brit Awards on Wednesday Mumford & Sons beat them to be named ‘Best British Group’ while One Direction came out on top in the ‘Global Success’ category. When the group went over to the folk band to congratulate them, they allegedly ignored their approaches, according to The Mirror.

‘The bands were passing in the corridor and 1D made an attempt to chat to them and say there were no hard feelings about them both winning different categories. But Mumford were having none of it. They didn’t want to know.

It was really awkward and everyone noticed.’ Louis said: ‘It was disappointing. Mumford’s reaction was disappointing. We’re really big fans and wanted to congratulate them. It was a shame.’

    I LOVE jake, he is so talented!!!! But i think he was so rude with 1d, btw in some point i understand musicians who write their owns songs and are ‘displaced’ in someway for teenagers who don’t know write their songs, i think that what makes an artist huge are their own ideas. Girls with crazy hormones don’t know appreciate good music and real talented. And maybe that’s includes me, because i like 1d, i think their are hot, but obviously preffers bands like coldplay, the strokes, arctic monkeys, keane, radiohead and muse. THESE BAND HAVE REAL TALENT.

    What it takes to be a real artist:
    1. Write your own music
    2. Use REAL intsruments
    3. No autotune (record the songs live)
    4. Be in it for the music (not money or fame)
    5. YOU HAVE TO BE ABLE TO ACTUALLY SING

    Too bad good music vanished a long time ago… I would love to see a new artist who is all of these things. Some artists have about half of these things. Very few true artists are left in the world

    NOT HATING AT ALL. this is my opinion

    THE “NEW BEATLES” Thing stared when PAUL FROM THE BEATLES COMPARED THE M TO HIS BAND. SO YEAH ITS DIFFERENT….

    1D the new beetles….? Ahaha pleeease. One direction is absolutely amazing at what they do . Louis, Niall, Zayn, Harry, and Liam are truly their own selves. One thing Mumford, and anyone else should know is that they’re not terrible. and even if ‘young girls that’ll grow up ‘ do get over them. Im a true directioner and i never will cuz they are great people.

    Oh. Poor guy. So arrogant and he’s not even famous. With that attitude the only thing that will be off the charts it’s his album :)

    It’s always so stupid to read comments of people calling out others for being rude and leaving a long-ass novel full of hurtful words. Way to go.

    ok what jake bugg said was WRONG but im hoping it was taken out of context as is common in the media. If that is what he said then that’s disappointing. but comments like ‘lol. he’s not even famous. i don’t even know him” are unnecessary! He’s not doing it for the fame he likes making music! He’s a wonderful artist and just because you don’t know him please don’t blast his music!
    im a huge fan of both and it really sucks that jake felt the need to comment on it like that. Yes, they’re not the new beatles. THERE WLL NEVER BE ANOTHER BEATLES. but it wasn’t right to continue to blast them after that statement. yes, comments made = bad. his music though = VERY GOOD.

    Says the guy who’s not even known in the first place. Lol.

    Why do musicians have to be so mean to each other, honestly? Twitter is a ghastly things, I hate it. If people used it less, there would be less drama. Anyway, I think Liam has a fantastic voice and he shouldn’t waste his time blasting back at people on twitter. If it was a misunderstanding, then clear the air and move on.

    Jake Bugg is a recognized actually talented musician. Just because you don’t know anyone that’s not played on radio Disney doesn’t mean that they’re a nobody.

    Just because he isn’t “known” doesn’t mean he isn’t speaking the truth. Not every comment is to get “famous”. He’s mostly right, you know.

    I don’t understand why musicians have to be dicks to each other.

    As soon as they break up people will forget them. They are not the new beatles. People will NEVER forget the beatles. 1D are simply products not artists, just like Rihanna and most of the celebrities out now that don’t write their own music.
