X Factor star "embarrassed" by publicity tweets

1 of 1 Arthur:
Arthur: "HQ please stop writing things like "we think you would #LOVE This and that"

X Factor winner (2012) James Arthur is far from impressed with his management company insisting that he is "embarrassed" by some of the tweets sent out on his behalf.

The 26-year-old Impossible singer even suggested that his fans would be better at taking on the task of promoting him.

In a series of angry tweets, Arthur wrote: "HQ please stop writing things like "we think you would #LOVE This and that" or "everybody #GETDOWN and buy this.." It's embarrassing.

"Stick to promoting Paul Potts please. Thanks. #LOVE The job is now going to an actual fan. Who wants the HQ job? #LOVE (sic)"

Arthur also offered fans the chance to create the cover for his upcoming mixtape that he will be releasing for free.

He added: "Love you guys! Your support is phenomenal! The hip hop mixtape "All The Worlds A Stage" is now being mixed and will be available very soon!

"Announcements to come! Seeing as though I'm doing this for the fans and I'm not charging for it I would like you to design the front cover.

"I would like the front cover to be a drawing of the killer whale/ Orca from sea world who features in the documentary "Blackfish" TILIKUM."

He added: "Ideally I'd like him to be attacking a crowd of people, lashing out after being exploited. Include my name and the title of the mixtape. You have a few days before a choose one of them :) and I would like to meet the artist I choose. #LOVE #AllTheWorldsAStage (sic)"
