The X Factor runner up Marcus Collins has revealed how he has been getting plenty of abuse from people regarding his cover of The White Stripes track Seven Nation Army. Marcus released the cover of the 2003 hit as his debut single and has since felt the wrath of many of the fans of the band. However, Marcus does not let it get to him and has questioned why these people even bother listening to it.
Collins explained, "I've had a lot of abuse. Plenty. Seriously but I know I can't please everyone. A lot of people have got opinions on it, but they can always listen to the White Stripes version. Why are they listening to me if they don't like it? Listen to the original if you don't like my singing. It's just the X Factor connection but, you know, why are people kicking off about it now?"
Marcus Collins recently revealed that he was still being subjected to racist and homophobic calls, which have been happening ever since he started on The X Factor. Marcus Collins is set to release his debut album, which has been co written by his X Factor mentor Gary Barlow, on March 12.
