It seems that, despite that fact that he won The X Factor last year, James Arthur is still not content with his very small success. While James won the show, British boyband One Direction failed to do the same in their season but have gone on to become the biggest boyband on the planet.
Clearly James Arthur is jealous of the boyband, as he latest rant about them has shown. One Direction fan Tyler Lee said that 1D were the biggest thing to come out of The X Factor, to which James responded, "One Direction don't sell records, they are a marketing product. They sell T-shirts and dolls you moron."
This coming from a guy who has only released one single in the past and will most likely be working in a shop somewhere, when One Direction have a reunion tour in 20 years time. Arthur has obviously had to time think about his comments and has realised how silly he sounds, as he has since backtracked.
After being asked about the One DIrection boys, James Arthur responded, "I have nothing but respect for 1D. They are great lads." We wouldn't be surprised if Simon Cowell had something to say to James Arthur, after all, both he and One Direction are signed to his Syco label.
