James Blunt: Interest In My Private Life Is Unhealthy

James Blunt has dismissed media interest in his private life as irrelevant and "unhealthy".

The You're Beautiful star has seen his love life plastered through the tabloids in recent years, with alleged romances with casting director Dixie Chassay, musician Camilla Boler and supermodel Petra Nemcova.

But speaking in the midst of a 14-month world tour, the singer-songwriter said he continues to find media interest in his private life bizarre.

"I've never read tabloid magazines, but I think it's a pretty unhealthy practice," he told inthenews.co.uk.

"You and I are not dogs sniffing each other, I'm not interested in your private life, nor should I be, and nor should you be in mine.

"We're hopefully intelligent human beings, who can talk about, discuss and maybe even achieve much greater things than learning about who you're shagging.

"So, for me, I've always stepped away from that and now that I'm in the public eye a bit more, I've just tried to ignore it."

He added: "It's not important and we've got many more important things to deal with. I'm not a celebrity, I'm a musician.

"Whether you like my music or not, music's part of our art and our culture, which sets us asides from being animals and is much more relevant."

James Blunt's new single I Really Want You is out on Monday August 4th.
