James Blunt News Archive
We thought this was a joke at first!
James Blunt has done a very serious singer/songwriter cover of Katy Perry's lighthearted summer anthem California Gurls.
We're not quite sure it works!
Judge for yourselves!
Check it out (above)!
A flame rekindled, perchance?!
The singer recently performed a gig at the W Hollywood Hotel, and ran into his alleged ex in an El Lay nightclub!
"They met up straight after James's gig and hit it off like a house on fire. James instantly hit the bar and was buying Jessica drinks and was clearly smitten. They only had eyes for each other and were snuggled up in a corner of the bar laughing and joking away all night. By the end of the evening and a few drinks later, they were snogging each other's faces off and very touchy feely before leaving together."
We suppose that distance only makes the heart grow
What do U think?? These two back together or just a severe case of ex-sex?!

Well, lookie at who's all scruff-free and cleaned up!
James Blunt was snapped performing at The Grove and El Lay last week and sporting a bit of a make-over!
We think that he sort of looks like Marilyn Manson with a splash of Prince William, no?
Who knew that a haircut and leather jacket would make such a difference?!

And it's looking quite promising!
"It's amazing these great singers are clearing their schedules to make this happen," said Simon. "I just found out Mariah has changed her schedule to be able to do this too."
The recording began this weekend with Cheryl Cole and British band JLS, but others expected to get into the studio are Take That, Michael Bublé, Westlife, Alexandra Burke, James Morrison, Mika and James Blunt.
"It says such a lot that everyone is working so hard to help Haiti," he continued. "This is something that really matters to us all, and I'm so grateful for the support we are getting."
Can't wait to hear it!

And, apparently, the singer's manager is a douche too!
Weird Al Yankovic is known to parody some of the best talent in music. We all recall when Yankovic did Eat It, his take on Michael Jackson's Beat It, and Fat, his take on MJ's Bad.
But it seems the You're Beautiful singer, James Blunt, wants no part of Yankovic's "flattery."
Weird Al is getting ready to release another one of his greatest hits CD this fall, but it seems he'll have to do it without Blunt's parody song he wrote and performed, You're Pitiful. Which is lame since reports state Blunt had originally agreed to allow the song to be parodied, but it was his record label, Atlantic Records, who pulled the plug.
Weird Al even took to his Twitter page yesterday to share his rejection notice from Blunt's manager.
"In case you were hoping for "You're Pitiful" to be included on my "Essentials" collection, sorry, this just in from Blunt's manager: Thanks for your email, but both James and I will never approve this parody to be released on any label."
James Blunt, his manager and his label need to get a sense of humor!
