You know you’ve really made it when 1) you’re attracting more headlines than Cheryl, 2) everyone wants a selfie with you and 3) you’re family brand you a total embarrassment.
So congrats Honey G – you are a star!
Although Honey – real name Anna Guildford – has captivated the nation with her unique form of ‘I say Honey, You say G’ rap, some members of her family have confessed that they are embarrassed by her cringey attempts at being a hip hop star!
An uncharitable relative, who wisely chose not to be named, has said: “To the nation Honey G is funny to watch but to her family it’s embarrassing.
“She has always lived in the shadow of her sister and finally this is her time to get attention, but it’s painful to watch.
“Anna is a very sensitive soul and to watch her being mocked by the nation is upsetting.”
But Honey shouldn’t care too much about this shocking diss, as Simon Cowell has her back.
Over the weekend, the normally acidic Simon Cowell praised Honey’s performance of Ice Ice Baby, gushing, “Because of your enthusiasm and your love for what you’re doing, you’re turning this around.”
However, not every one gets the Honey G phenomenon. John Legend, who appeared with her on the X Factor over the weekend, admitted he didn’t quite know what to make of the wannabe Missy Elliott.
“She has attracted a lot of attention, ‘ he admitted. “All I told her was, try and be the best version of you that you can be.
“To me, I think part of it is about choosing which songs you do and trying to execute the mechanical of being a good rapper, it’s about flow, it’s about how you use your voice, how you communicate to the audience – so I tried to be as kind and sensitive as I could be.”
John also confessed that he wasn’t exactly a fan of Honey’s kooky song choice, as he felt it made her appear as more of a novelty act
“You know, people are obviously getting caught up in the novelty of it. The song she had chosen, I thought, heightened the novelty of her because it was referencing another novelty act, which I thought wasn’t the best idea, so I told her that.”
Good advice, matey! Well let’s see if Honey takes on board what a proper music star has to say.
Though we suspect that she’ll probably end up doing some quirky tongue-in-cheek Halloween-inspired tune for this weekend’s Fright Night.
