James Blunt makes startling confession about Elton John’s white tie party
James Blunt made a startling confession about Elton John’s white tie party while renting a cheap suit for the occasion.
The singer, 48, made the candid admission on Amanda Wakeley’s Style DNA podcast this week as he discussed his past fashion disasters.
The former British Army officer told how he arrived “ridiculous” and “felt like a jerk” while all the other celebrities “presented themselves as pop stars”.
He said, “Sometimes if I’m given the instruction, I’ll show up as instructed!” So I showed up to Elton John and David Furnish’s white tie and tiara party, I had just left the army and become a pop star.
“So I had just come out and rented a white tie and a tiara. And turned out ridiculous. And all the others were pop stars and they became pop stars!
“So I was the only one, looking like a waiter and looking like a jerk. And so I learned the hard way, I won’t do that again.
It comes after viewers of BBC Breakfast late last year were shocked to call an interview with James “unprofessional” and “weird”.
