Saint Albarn

Blur and Gorillaz frontman Damon Albarn has called for celebrity culture to be "dismantled" - starting by getting rid of talent shows like The X Factor.

"We need to dismantle very significant parts of our culture and really re-examine them. I suppose you start with the celebrity thing."

He added: "There's just so many things I would alter. I think for a start you have to get rid of things like The X Factor immediately."

He also said he wanted to "get rid of 99% of the media".

  1. Mmm, brainwashing the masses. Nice man.
    Gun crime has risen stack in England since this was released on the Demon Days album. I do think that he is a man that either knows a lot about 'what is really going on' or he has been totally brainwashed himself.

    "Kids With Guns"

    Kids with guns, kids with guns
    Taking over but it won't be long
    They mesmerized, skeletons
    Kids with guns, kids with guns
    Easy does it, easy does it
    They got something to say no to

    Drinking out
    (Push it real, push it)
    Pacifier
    (Push it real, push it)
    Vitamin souls
    (Push it real, push it)
    The street desire
    (Push it real, push it)
    Doesn't make sense to
    (Push it real, push it)
    But it won't be long
    (Push it real, push it)

    Kids with guns, kids with guns
    Easy does it, easy does it
    They got something to say no to

    And they're turning us into monsters
    Turning us into fire turning us into monsters
    It's all desire, it's all desire, it's all desire

    Drinking out
    Pacifier
    Sinking soul
    Where you are
    Doesn't make sense to
    But it won't be long

    'Cause kids with guns, kids with guns
    Easy does it, easy does it
    They got something to say no to

    And they're turning us into monsters
    Turning us into fire, turning us into monsters
    It's all desire, it's all desire, it's all desire

    Push it real, push it, push it
    Push it real, push it, push it
    Push it real, push it, push it
    Push it real, push it, push it
    Push it real, push it, push it

    Push it, push it real, push it
