Kate Nash, who according to Maura is “a lot less cloying than on record/in the press,” probably should consider visiting every single person who reads British music coverage, because at this rate, “cloying” is leading “not completely self-absorbed” by six lengths. Besides breaking the news to me that Nash is dating Ryan Jarman from The Cribs, a band I actually enjoy, this Sun article also lets us know that Nash finds people in the music business can be irritating (or “w******” in edited Brit-speak). Say it ain’t so!
“I threw some beer over some of the crowd at The Cribs gig over here the other day. I thought it was going to be amazing – but I got there and the band were amazing but the crowd were s***. It was just industry w****** with their clipboards.
“I threw a beer and it went over all of these industry people and they got upset. I went to a party and it was full of horrible stick-thin people. We did my new song in one live take. There are so many people in this industry who make you angry. It makes you want to scream.”
The ever-delightful Nash is glad she won the Best New Female Artist award at the Brits over Leona Lewis because “I started this myself. I’m not a manufactured, size zero pop artist who is going to bring out her own perfume and clothes range.” On the other hand, artists with their own perfume and clothing lines occasionally put out listenable music with lyrics that don’t sound like they were taken directly from their own MySpace blog, but maybe I’m being too picky.
