His meteoric rise to pop super-stardom after forever wedding song “You’re Beautiful” may have sent a lesser man stark mad, but J Blunt has managed to keep his feet on the ground and retain his humility.
Of course he probably has bittersweet feelings over that song; on the one hand it made him a star and shed loads of cash, but on the other hand he’s constantly reminded of it wherever he goes.
It’s a price I’d be willing to pay tbh.
Nevertheless, the certified posh-boy and ex military man has done alright for himself in the years since that 2004 hit, firmly establishing himself as the unofficial King of Twitter.
Sadly not. I had a dodgy tummy that night and shat the bed. Do send them my regards. https://t.co/Jap41IHg4Z

And now the crooner’s at it again over a case of mistaken identity.
Another brilliant James – singer James Blake – was wrongly credited as the singer of “You’re Beautiful” by radio station Kiss FM.
Look – they tagged him and everything.

Eagle-eyed Blake spotted the mistake and decided to play along, jokingly admitting that yep, that was his song:
Hi it’s me – the singer of ‘You’re Beautiful’ https://t.co/He2x7tZG6k

Cue vintage Blunt – responding with a brilliantly self-deprecating and funny tweet.
Maybe he really does regret making that song.
As I said earlier, he’s made a habit of taking the piss out of himself and people seem to love it:

I feel bad about calling him a posh-boy earlier because I meant it in a positive way.
Posh like Benedict Cumberbatch, Tom Hiddlestone, Bear Grylls and Eddie Redmayne, not like David Cameron, Jacob Rees-Mogg or the worst of the lot, Hugh Grant.
