Singer recently called 1D 'terrible'

Jake Bugg has claimed that he never meant to get into an argument with One Direction – despite calling them ‘terrible’.

The singer-songwriter upset 1D when he slated them in an interview, which caused Louis Tomlinson and Niall Horan to fire back on Twitter.

But Jake, who’s rumoured to be dating Harry Styles‘ ex Cara Delevingne, says it all got out of hand.

My so-called “pop feud”? Well, people are saying it’s all made up…’ says Jake, 19.

But obviously I have said things about them. I can’t take back those quotes. But the music industry loves a good rivalry, right?

I’m not looking for fights or rivalries, or any of that sh*t. I wasn’t looking for attention. Someone asked my opinion and I gave it.’

But despite backing down slightly, Jake’s clearly not going to become a 1D fan any time soon.

It started because someone said they’re like The Beatles,’ Jake tells MF Magazine.

What the f*ck? It’s just ridiculous to compare them to The Beatles. I mean, The Beatles! They wrote their own songs.

It’s almost too stupid a comparison to even bother arguing with. Write some songs! Write a song like Something, and then I’ll admit you’re up there with The Beatles.’
