Blunt and plain talking

Very, very plain talking from James Blunt, in fact. It turns out he's as dull as talking as he is singing:

“I’ve definitely suffered from the backlash thing, but I’ve also had a huge amount of along the way.

“I know if you put your head above the parapet you should expect to get shot at in some way.

“It’s the way it is sometimes. Of course I’ve given it some thought but I haven’t lost any sleep over it."

We are impressed than any journalist managed to capture those words - they must have sounded like the teacher from the Peanuts cartoon.

What we don't understand, though, is how Blunt thinks making dull, created-for-New-Woman-compilations plodding tunes is "sticking your head above the parapet" - it's not like he's making pronouncements on the socio-political situation, is it? There's hardly any risk in putting out a musically conservative track with lyrics about how beautiful someone is.
