    Thank fucking God!!! :yes:


    After selling 18 million albums worldwide and a year of playing sell-out shows on his world tour, James Blunt has decided to quit his career in music.

    The 38-year-old, who served as an officer in the Life Guards cavalry regiment and saw action in Kosovo before embarking on his hugely successful singing career, wants to settle down and enjoy the fruits of his labour.

    Speaking of his plans to retire, the singer told the Daily Mail:

    "I just want to take some time out for myself. I haven’t got any plans to do more songwriting. I have been chilling out since I finished my world tour and I’ve spent a lot of time in Ibiza, where I have a villa."

    James was in town with his girlfriend of nine months, model Sofia Wellesley, for the relaunch of nightclub Barbarella in Fulham, London.

    The crooner went on: "Sofia and I had a great time hanging out with friends on my yacht but we partied as well. I do like a good night out and that is why it’s great fun to hang out at Barbarella. London needs more nightclubs like this".

    Three years after quitting the Army in 2002, the singer rose to fame with his ballad 'You’re Beautiful', which stayed at the top of the UK charts for five weeks. His debut album, 'Back To Bedlam', sold six million copies.

    James has won two Brit Awards and received five Grammy nominations. His final performance in Britain was a concert at the Shepherd’s Bush Empire in February, watched by his entire family.

    What difference does it make to anyone in this thread whether he retires or not?
    I don't get the cheering.

    I checked out about 15 seconds of you're beautiful on youtube and I can honestly say I never heard it before and yes it does indeed suck.

    It's still a huge hit with the ladies. I hear it at every wedding I attend. It's ear piercing.
