Plan B talks to Miranda Sawyer

Just read this interview by Miranda Sawyer with Plan B, done just before his appearance at Glastonbury. What powerful, brutal empathy. 
"I'd never call myself that [a role model], that's for other people to say," he says. "Anyway, if you're a kid with a good life, I'm the worst role model in the world. I drink. I don't have a problem with drugs, apart from hard drugs. I'm no good for you, if you're from a good background. But for kids with bad lives, from bad homes, the fucked-up kids whose parents are alcoholics, who are abused, whose lives are shit, then yeah, I'll bring you up. I'll understand. Listen to my music – I'll help you through. You can rely on me."


  1. Thats some really deep stuff, and I'm glad that at least some of the celebs in this world are honest, even though very brutally.

    i love your blog by the way!

  2. I love her music! =)


  3. Awww, that's a cool quote. I don't believe I've heard her music, yet, though!
