Lucy Spraggan Clears The Air With James Arthur
X Factor star took to Twitter to set the record straight…
Friday, November 29, 2013 - 17:51
The 22-year-old tweeted: “There has been a lot of discussion around my tweets to James Arthur last week and I'd like to make my views clear."
“This is a sensitive subject and I want to clarify that, whilst I know James isn't a homophobe and I didn't intend for my tweets to be read that way, I did want to confront an issue that I feel really strongly about and which is what I had hoped to highlight.”
“Homophobic language has sadly become so engrained into everyday conversation,” Lucy continued. “People don't realise the discriminating and devastating effect it can have.”
Last year both guitar-playing Lucy and 25-year-old James got past judges’ houses in the singing competition but Lucy withdrew from the competition in week 5. Arthur went on to be crowned the X Factor winner 2012.
He is scheduled to perform on the X Factor this weekend (December 1), despite cancelling a string of recent appearances due to “acute exhaustion”.
