Whilst Alex Turner can do no wrong in many people’s eyes, there’s one person who’s definitely not a fan of the Arctic Monkeys frontman - Fat White Family’s Lias Saoudi.
The lead singer of the London band embarked on a furious, foul-mouthed rant about Turner, calling him a “moron”, a “joke” and a “f**king buffoon” in response to his bizarre acceptance speech at February’s BRIT Awards.
"Words are not enough to describe how much of a fucking buffoon I think that man is," Saoudi told the NME. "I find it unbelievable that people think of him the way they do. The guy is clearly a moron. He was talking about the universe and cyclical natures and ‘invoice me for the microphone’. What are you talking about man? You’re a fucking millionaire. His latest record, I fucking hated it."
Warming to his theme, he added: “I hate that little c**t, he’s a fucking joke. It was the least rock’n’roll thing I’ve ever seen in my fucking life. His speech was horrendously embarrassing. It made me sweat, like when you see something that really makes you cringe. Massive cock. Print that.” (source gigwise)
** Wow!!! Guess you can tell they really have made it when other bands that are jealous jump on the bandwagon to slam them in the press so they get their own attention! What a tool that guy is!! Karma is a bitch.”**
