X Factor's James Arthur admits 'I’m not Brad Pitt' but he knows the secret to get ANY woman into bed
He’s been linked with three brunettes, a blonde and Take Me Out‘s Chanelle McLeary all in the past fortnight.
But considering there’s a lot of rich, talented popstars out there – and there’s plenty – what is it about crooked toothed James Arthur that’s getting girls everywhere practically stripping naked and throwing themselves at him?
Well I think I’ve worked it out.
It’s not just fame or talent. There’s plenty of other manwhore celebs with the same qualities.
No. It is something much more powerful.
Take lessons boys, the real trick to getting ANY woman into bed is a little bit of good old self deprecation.
And The X Factor winner James, 24, is a master of it.
James came out with a classic today, saying: ‘I realise I’m not exactly Brad Pitt. I’m a bit of an ugly f***er so I’ll take what I can get while I can.’
First of all charming. But secondly, you have to be a pretty hard-hearted woman not to want to give James a little hug and assure him he’s not ‘ugly’ and he’s – as L’Oreal has taught us – worth it.
And James goes on to tell The Sun…
‘Some of the girls I’ve never had a hope of pulling are getting back in touch now I’ve been on telly’.
Aww. James, stop. You’re going to make me cry. So you were ignored and never thought you had a chance with these girls?
And now like a dream come true, they’re all chasing you?
Now you can’t believe your luck because despite being incredibly talented you still have no self confidence?
Stop, stop, stop! I’m literally imagining me saving you in some kind of twisted Fifty Shades Of Grey way right now.
Then comes the clincher.
‘I’m very much a boyfriend type of guy, I’ve been in relationships since I was 16.’
‘She [My ex] is still one of my best friends. I’m not going to treat a woman like a piece of meat.’
What? So this playboy behaviour is not really you? You’re just doing this because of your crushing insecurity? You’re really looking for a nice girl to look after you who you can serenade on a guitar?
James adds: ‘I can’t think of myself of a heartthrob. I get so many nice messages on Twitter but I’ll get one bad comment and I can’t forget it.’
That’s it. Tortured. Artist. Profile. Complete.
Wham bam, thank you Maam, any girl is now putty in his guitar-string plucking hands.
Now where can I find him?
