Meanwhile, Blur guitarist Graham Coxon recently labelled Kanye West a “fucking idiot” in a new interview.

When quizzed by The Guardian on his opinion of the rapper, Coxon replied: “He’s a fucking idiot, isn’t he? Does he even make his own albums?”

Coxon continued to bemoan the state of modern music: “People aren’t interested in learning instruments and putting effort and time into it. They want it immediately. It’s McDonalds, isn’t it? It’s convenient.

He added that he wasn’t impressed with the work of the likes of Kanye West: “All I hear is a loop starting, some bloke starts to sing or rap, and the loop finishes. There’s no shape to this stuff. And the lyrics just seem to be idiotic.”
