From Dorian Lynskey:

'Maura Johnston at the Village Voice explains why Jessie J’s Price Tag was the most infuriating song of 2011. Jessie J is an appalling pop star on every level. Like Katy Perry without the sense of humour or Lady Gaga without the imagination, she combines bulldozering crassness with the delusion that she has Something Important to Say. On Price Tag sanctimony collides with zero self-awareness and rampant hypocrisy to create something truly noxious. As Maura writes: “In the context of other artists, the slightly ignorant ‘screw money, let’s party’ sentiment espoused by the lyrics might seem merely misguided, a tone-deaf attempt to capitalize on the bubbling anxiety about the world’s problems carried out by someone who hasn’t had to worry about what happens when ‘the money, money, money’ runs out in quite a while. But in the context of Jessie J’s prolonged multimedia assault, it’s downright offensive.” File under: Problem Mistakes Self For Solution.'

Wiggins is so superbly unassuming, he looks like he's about to say 'Pop the gold medal in the post, I'm nipping out for some biscuits'
