They aren't related in the slightest.
Ok, I have an idea what your reply will be to this, but I'm going to say it anyway... I'm not a 20something who has just been dumped, I couldn't care less what he says at an awards ceremony and the clothes coming off in the vid does nothing for me BUT I do like James Blunt. I don't care whether or not he writes his own songs. I think he has a unique voice and for some reason it appeals to me. Isn't that what pop music is all about? to be successful, one cannot be bad.
