Paul Weller gave The Ordinary Boys a small boost early on in what I shan't call "their career" lest people think me sarcastic. Weller told people he loved the band.
Now, though, Weller is withdrawing his support. Why he's even bothering to mention this in 2008 is puzzling - it's a little bit like saying you no longer endorse John Kerry for president, isn't it?
What's even more bemusing is his reasoning:
"What happened to them, man? I thought he was a credible character, serious about what he was doing,” Weller told the Mirror newspaper.
“Then he's behaving like a silly pop star, a total about-face."
Weller is reacting to Preston going on Celebrity Big Brother. In 2006. Is he slowly working his way through back issues of Heat or something?
