Yesterday, Lewis Capaldi gave fans a little more than what they paid for at Edinburgh Summer sessions and weed himself on stage.
The trickle didn’t appear out of excitement or nervousness, it arrived because the Scottish Crooner couldn’t control his bursting bladder during a high note.
He bravely made the 6000 attendees aware of this by stating, “I’ve pissed myself.”
“I don’t usually get embarrassed but this is a new low,” he continued with a chuckle.
Coming from the singer who once spoke about his toilet trouble of not being able to plunge a sh*t away in detail on Instagram, he truly must’ve been mortified.
He then further explained that to stay hydrated, he drank a lot of water before his performance as it’s good for his voice. Water only became his enemy when he attempted to hit a high note and the smallest bit of wee escaped him.
For some, this would be a massive turn off and a moment of horror to witness, but this Lewis Capaldi we’re talking about and his fans seem to love him the more for it.
Considering that it’s only been a day since he’s met Elton John, he’s won a feud against Noel Gallagher and he’s continuously selling -out gigs and concerts, things are still going pretty damn well for the comedy king of social media.
Of course, dear old Noel seems to think very little of his music – in fact, he presumably isn’t a fan of him as a person either, since he wouldn’t have said the things he has if he did.
And, in an interview with Radio X, Gallagher complained about the industry in general, before focusing on Capaldi, saying:
“Music is f*cking w*nk at the moment. Who’s this Capaldi fella? Who the f*ck’s that idiot?“
Bit much, really.
Weirdly though, Capaldi couldn’t be happier with the criticism, taking to his Instagram story – as he always does – to celebrate.
At first, he replayed the clip of Gallagher’s comments, before shouting “f*cking c’mon!”
He goes on to say:
“F*cking peaked. Being slagged off by Noel Gallagher. F*cking c’mon!“
He also points to himself and says “me”, as Gallagher asks “who’s this Capaldi fella?”
“Number one single – who gives a fuck? Number one album – who gives a fuck? Noel Gallagher has just slagged me off. This is dreams coming true.
It’s Father’s Day, I’m being slagged off by a man who is old enough to be my Da and I’ve never been more happy. I’ve never been more happy. Happy Father’s Day, Noel.”
Never change, Lewis. You’re a national treasure.
