Sometimes in showbusiness a person comes along who has a little bit of success which goes straight to their head. Now, no disrespect to Conor Maynard but when people compare him to Justin Bieber it is only because they are of similar age. For a start, Justin Bieber is better looking and, as much as you may disagree, has better music and is a global superstar. So why on earth would Conor say that he is a more sophisticated version of Bieber?
Maynard stated, “I can see why –we're both young and came through YouTube. But I don't like being boxed in. I would much rather people listened to the album and made up their own mind rather than being told what it is.”
He added, “I think my music is aimed at a slightly older and more sophisticated palette. I named the album Contrast because I wanted to show it wasn't a Bieber 2.0 album.”
While Conor may be deluded enough to actually believe that he is aimed at a more sophisticated and older audience, we beg to differ. Take, for example, the Conor Maynard track Another One, which has the line “Said she wanna peel my banana”. Very sophisticated Conor, very sophisticated indeed!
