Being blunt

No primary category set

World’s most annoying singer, James Blunt, has told GQ magazine that he once sold his sister on eBay. While waiting for his first album to come out, he sold “pretty much everything” he owned on eBay, describing himself as “mildly addicted”. When his sister was unable to travel to Ireland for a funeral, he advertised a “Damsel in distress seeks knight in shining armour! Desperate to get to a funeral in Southern Ireland, please help!” The winning bidder flew Miss Blunt to Ireland in his helicopter: three years later, they’re getting married.
