‘Even musicians are yuppies now’: Menswe@r singer Johnny Dean lashes out at BRIT Awards

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: What the world needs now is Johnny Dean. The Menswe@r frontman has resurrected his ’90s Britpop act for a sold-out gig at London’s Bush Hall next month, and it appears he’s already been busy sharpening the knives.

Last night during the BRIT Awards, Dean lashed out via Twitter at the state of pop music, blaming the tories for the current yuppiedom of rock stars, decrying the factory-made singers of today, and imploring a-bit-wet soulman John Newman to do something, anything, “offensive.”

Dean was apparently set off by the nominees in the Best British Single category, which featured Bastille, Calvin Harris, Disclosure, Ellie Goulding, Newman, Naughty Boy, Olly Murs, One Direction, Passenger, and Rudimental.

“Waiting All Night” by Rudimental took home the prize, in a bit of an upset.

Here’s the good word from Dean:

Here are the details on the ‘Swe@r gig in March. We’ll have a full report afterwards on Vanyaland.
