James Blunt ...Answers Your Questions
What's the craziest thing a fan has done to you?
Rancho Santa Margarita, Calif.
Done to me? I've had nothing perverse thrown at me. But I get some pretty amazing things from fans that you can tell have taken hours to construct. I received a scrap-book that's a work of art in itself. I keep everything that's sent to me. I have a room in my home for it—there is less and less space now!
Do you think you'll have time to shave now that the new album's done?
[Laughs] I don't think I will. Genuinely! I'm working too hard. Even to wash.
You seem to be partying hard. Have you become a victim of the Hollywood party circuit?
I recorded Back to Bedlam four years ago, and I was out on the Hollywood circuit at every single bar and club there was. But pictures are taken of me now, so some think I've [just] fallen into that trap. No, I was there early on. It's just that no one took pictures of me! I enjoy going to places like Les Deux—it's a good club in Los Angeles. I hang around there far too much.
What's the scoop behind the "You're Beautiful" video? Was the dive off the cliff for real?
Englewood Cliffs, N.J.
[The concept was] I was baring my soul and lining up my worldly possessions. And then throwing myself off the cliff. Kind of cleansing, I suppose. And yeah, I did do it for real. Twice. Very painful.
Are you excited that the Beckhams are here in America?
I'm very, very excited by that. I watch the news occasionally, and I've seen [them on it]. There are a couple of wars going on too, and there's global warming and climate change. But I think it's good for football in America.
Will you meet my grandma? She loves you so much!
St. Albert, Alta.
[Smiles] If she turns up at a concert, which is when I'll be nearest to her in her own country, then I'll come knocking on the door. It will be an absolute pleasure.
