Johnny Borrell defends his love of the other guys

There's a surprisingly pro-Borrell piece in the 3am girls column this morning:

Johnny Borrell has denied bizarre rumours that he's to quit Razorlight and go solo. The rocker told us: "I'm so tired of hearing this nonsense. It's complete rubbish and we're all working hard on a momentous third album." We never doubted you...

It's the "we never doubted you" bit that's especially odd - as if there's something almost heretical about suggesting Johnny Borrell might dump Stigsy, Plank, Boomer and the rest of the Razorlights. Although describing the rumours as "bizarre" - as if Borrell's constant centre-stage hogging and diva complex isn't a pretty big hint that he's already doing a solo career in everything but the divvying-up of cash at the end of the week - is a bit odd in its own right.

It's interesting to note that the 3AM Column is one of the few places in the world where you ever read quotes from the rest of the band.
