Murs: ‘My suffering over GCSE English retakes’

15 Apr

By Slick Nick | @Poppeelings

Pop singer Olly Murs has finally come clean over one of the greatest turmoils of his life – having to retake GCSE English twice.

The male, 29, finally achieved a D grade the third time around; something of a family record.

The certificate did not come without its sacrifices though for the young cockney:

“Fackin hell guv, you have no idea how intimidating it is sitting in a basketball hall surrounded by teenagers that can read and write properly.”

“Apples and pears, I had to study my backside off. I could only go to the Braintree Whetherspoon’s three times a week. Apparently the fruit machine takings were right down. Speaking of fruit, how are you for oranges?”

Murs’ music, a mixture of dated pop and raggae, is a favourite amongst unattractive white teenage girls in Britain, many of whom are also illiterate. The horrors of Murs’ GCSE examinations are thought to have struck a chord with this fanbase, helping them bond and relate further to their idol.

Fortunately, the line of work Murs finds himself in today requires very little writing at all.

        I got way further in life than Olly. For example I have a wife. All of Olly’s songs are about how he cannot bag any skirt. Let me know when he does…

        I’m living a meaningful life that makes me happy though. by the way, very few people can ‘get anywhere in life’ due to wider economic issues, so it’s unfair of you to judge them.

    Go fuck ur self. You really offended me and u have no right to say that about olly! It has nothing to do with the past, it’s about what he like now and he hasn’t got a wife because he wants one that HE knows is right instead of someone who will eventually break his heart. You with me b*tch?! Now u can fuck off and leave him and his fans alone!

      Offence is meaningless; there is no harm in having your worldview challenged. If anything, I have reaffirmed your love/faith in this cretin, so you should thank me, not telling me to fuck off.

      I’ve done nothing to his fans but it’s them that antagonise me on here due to their very low standards in music/culture.

        Maybe if u weren’t so bloody rude about it, we would leave u be and u wouldn’t have argue with us. Ok u can put this on here but at least be nice about how u feel about him. God sake!!

    Hello, I am here to say that I find this article very offensive. Just because Olly may not be the sharpest tool in the shed you have no reason to criticize him. I personally am not a huge fan of his, but he is trying to make it in a very hard industry, and people that write these types of articles are not helping one bit. Please try to understand that I’m not necessarily trying to defend him, but everyone that gets undeserved hate. Thank you.

    You are just looking for abuse posting this. You are quite pathetic. So what he failed his GCSEs, it dosent matter millions of people fail there gcses. Why pick in him? Because he’s famous? Because he is a artist? Most artists don’t write there own music, you know that right? You just have to have the voice.
