James Bay Interview
We speak to James Bay about his debut LP 'Chaos And The Calm.' Read on.

Azealia Banks isn’t the only repeat offender when it comes to Twitter beefs. Lily Allen is no shrinking violent when it comes to confrontation and she had some choice words for James Bay last night. The Sheezus diva took offense at a quip the newcomer made in an interview about the BRIT Awards. (Lily had expressed concern about the lack of diversity). “It’s varied nominations. It’s about music. I don’t know why she’s had to go down that route,” he told The Mirror, before adding:‚Äč “I can’t think of her last album, when she last released something.”

Well, Lily wasn’t about to let that stand. “A fellow named James Bay dodged a question about lack of diversity at the Brits has apparently labeled me entirely forgettable,” the 30-year-old tweeted. “I must admit if not heard of him until I saw my feed this morning, I have now listened to some of his music and seen his hat… he shares a name with the most standard, basic and least flavorsome herb, which I found both fitting and amusing.”

The “Let It Go” hitmaker responded to Lily’s tweets this afternoon (February 22), backtracking on his previous commentary. “I fully support and believe the Brits should represent a diverse spectrum of artists and music,” he wrote. “I don’t feel negative towards Lily or her music at all. Someone in the press has been over creative with this whole story.” See Lily’s tweets and James’ statement below.
