Downloads, CDs, tour tickets, whatrver.

I wouldn't now. The thought of him makes me feel sick.

cant answer that as I have never listened to it

his behaviour is such that I have never had the inclination to seek out his music in the first place

kinda the opposite effect of promotion

No I wouldn't because I don't think he comes across as a very pleasant person and I won't support someone who is unpleasant.

It's a shame as he was my favourite act last year.

He's done himself no favours being such an arse to pretty much everyone. I wouldn't now as I simply don't like the thought of giving him my money. Petty, I know, but I wouldn't go up to an enemy and give them a fiver.

I won't be buying his album as his personality is putting me off supporting him, although I may give it a listen for free on youtube or spotify as it seems to have received decent reviews.

......and the DS members represent the whole of the general public right? He was trending on twitter yesterday because he did something on radio 1 xtra.

To answer your question, yes, bought the deluxe album, and it's fantastic.

He was more likely to be trending for insulting 1D, with their fans going nuts, not because he is popular.

I'm not sure his trending was for a positive reason. He lost several thousand followers on twitter last night as a result of being on the radio.

I listened to the album when it was streamed last week and on that basis decided not to buy it.

This is a silly question because this forum loathes James Arthur.

I personally enjoy his music, if I like it, I'll buy it, if I don't, I won't. Simples.

I'm surprised, I thought you would have started to loath him since he did attack and belittle your faves. One Direction.

But he did have a dig about 1D fans in that rap on the radio and a lot of tweets were about that.

Frankie Boyle is wading in again!

To be fair to James Arthur, he only has a problem with 1D because they remind him of his GCSE results

As with any artist, I will buy based on the quality of the music. Sometimes I have met the artists behind the music, and some have been more friendly than others, but it is the music that determines whether I buy it or not.

I believe I bought Impossible off Spotify before they shelved purchasing tracks, since which I have not bought any, as I refuse to pay more than the 50p per track I used to pay on spotify.

Frankie Boyle is a bit of an arrogant pig really. I don't care for his attitude anymore than I care for that 'sense of humour'.
