James McVey Defends Music Video With Demi Lovato ‘We Didn’t Choose The People Who Appeared In The Video’

laura-marano-the-vampsjames-mcveyJames McVey Tweeted after backlash over new video with Laura Marano and Demi Lovato: ‘Wish people who claim to be fans would support us at each step, we try unbelievably hard to make your happy with these videos!

We don’t pick the guys and girls who appear in our music videos. They are trained actors and actresses casted by the director.’ Did YOU like The Vamps and Demi’s new music video?

    what backlash..?

    why do people get mad when they choose pretty people to be in music videos like it’s not their fault that actors are pretty?

    • aly

      Yes, actors are pretty but still there are many actors out there who don’t get a role because they’re not conventionally pretty enough. Do you think all music videos have pretty people in it by coincidence? LOL. It’s because the people who cast actors are the ones who choose pretty actors, they’ll judge the ones who are auditioning most of the time by their looks and not by their talents.

      • honesty

        Well, that’s not the casting directors’ fault. People can’t want to work in a superficial world and then get mad at how superficial it is. They know what they’re getting into so they have to deal with it. Right or wrong, beauty runs the world and it always has. This is nothing new therefore people have nothing to be angry about.

      • BrokenArrow18

        well that’s how their job works, extras on videos are mostly picked from a model agency, how they look has a major part in their work, the thing is that in this case fangirls always complain about stuff like this because they’re mosltly insecure girls that dream about dating them and since most of them call themselves ugly if they choose pretty girls to be in the video they feel uglier and think that they dont have a chance with them that’s why they were complaining, no to stick up for less goodlooking actors.

  • roxanneXD

    who is James McVey ?

  • Marina And My Diamonds

    I don’t get why anyone would be upset, I didn’t even watch the video fully (that’s how important music videos are to me.) I clicked play and went to another tab. Just listen to the music if you don’t like the video.

    • BrokenArrow18

      fans were complaining that they only put good looking people in the video i guess

      • honesty

        Wtf. How stupid are they?

        • BrokenArrow18

          I think it’s insecure people who complains

  • honesty

    He is the Liam of the Vamps.

  • Duckyhoward15

    I can assure you no one sent them any tweets and this guy and his band want attention like this singer who claimed directioners hate on her for having a photo with harry and when people searched the killasami tag we found nothing LOL

    • BrokenArrow18

      I did see tweets of fans complaining about.it

      • Duckyhoward15

        Like ten not like how he is describing it (our fans should support us blah blah ) things like this will happen fans won’t like everything and insulting them or calling them fake will make them leave ), this band likes to act as if they are the biggest thing on the planet lol

  • Hollyhysteria

    I read that as James McAvoy and wondered when he was in a music video..

  • laura

    The song is bad anyway so who cares.

  • Grammy Winner Taylor Swift

    Sorry, nobody wants to look at fatties.

  • threelittlebirds

    since when did people start caring about what kind of people are in a music video? it’s just a music video, there’s no need to get your panties in a twist.

    • moonlight

      because they think those pretty girls will hit on their idols

      • threelittlebirds

        that’s kinda dumb. as if they’ll have a chance with them anyway..
