‘La Roux? How La Rude!’ says Frankmusik

Electro-pop man says he likes the NME Radar Tour star's music, though...

Frankmusik‘s Vincent Frank has laid into fellow electro-pop chart rival La Roux, calling her “La rude”.

Speaking in this week’s NME, out now, he gave his opinion on the UK Top Five-dwelling singer, who headlines the Samsung NME Radar Tour this April and May.

“Her as a person? Not so sure about,” he told NME.COM, then recalled a comment made by La Roux when both were nominated for the BBC Sound Of 2009 Poll.


“I wouldn’t, for example, say about that BBC Sound Of 2009 Poll, ‘I’m the only decent one on the shortlist’ in front of someone else who was on that list,” he said. “How la rude!”

However, Frank did admit that he was a big fan of La Roux‘s music, especially her Top Five hit ‘In For The Kill’. “Do I like her music? Yes!” he exclaimed.
