Attacking James Blunt

It’s not often that I agree with the Daily Mail, but I think this article on James Blunt is right on the money. The guy doesn’t seem to have done anything wrong, yet is reviled by the press and the frequent target of abuse in the blogosphere. It’s hardly his fault if some radio stations have overplayed the singles. If people genuinely don’t like the music, fine, but much of it seems to be the usual I-must-sneer-at-anybody-popular snideness, and in many cases I wonder which came first.
