It’s safe to say that singer James Blunt is just as known for his incredible Twitter page as he is for his music.
The ‘You’re Beautiful’ hitmaker has a bit of a reputation for putting down his haters in the best possible way with his self-deprecating and sarcastic humour.
Whilst the tweets have seen his popularity soar online, with the star amassing 1.36million followers on the micro-blogging site, James has now admitted that his record label aren’t too happy with him and told him to be a little less sarcastic.
Speaking to Music Week, James explained: “They asked me to stop, they said it was bad for my brand. I said to my manager, ‘This brand is broken already and maybe I can just be myself now’.”
And we have to admit, it appears to have worked wonders for him.
If you thought 2016 was bad – I'm releasing an album in 2017.

James also confessed that since buying a Tuk-Tuk in Thailand, which he shipped to his home in Ibiza, he is continuously being mistaken for a taxi driver.
He explained: “I bought a Tuk-Tuk in Thailand. It cost a bit to get it back to Ibiza, but it’s amazing.
“People stop me, thinking I’m a taxi driver, and then when they recognise me say things, like, ‘Oh, my God! You’re that guy who sang that song! What happened to you?'”
Well, at least he has a back-up career if his singing and Twitter put-downs go down the drain!
