Last month Kasabian’s Tom Meighan vowed to stop slagging off other artists. But that pledge said nothing about ‘X-Factor’. Though it’s possible slating ‘X-Factor’ contestants does, in fact, constitute “slagging off other artists”. But I’m happy to let the European Court Of Human Rights rule on that one.

Meanwhile, here’s what Meighan had to say when asked about the talent show after singing some songs on a plane for VEVO: “It’s just really tragic. It’s not about singing, it’s about TV. You get the contestants who are all, like, drooling. Pathetic isn’t it? The egos are awful. Awful!”
