The Streets - Mike Skinner Clears Up Damon Albarn Remarks

British rapper Mike Skinner has spoken out to clarify his comments about Damon Albarn, insisting he admires the Blur frontman's musical output but finds his stage presence silly.
The former The Streets star hit headlines on Monday (19Mar12) when he suggested Albarn should stop rocking out onstage because his act "just doesn't work" anymore now he is in his forties.
Skinner has now reached out to his fans to explain he loves Albarn's music but is disappointed the star acted "like a t*t" during Blur's performance at the Brit Awards in February (12).
In a post on, he writes, "I didn't say Damon Albarn should quit music. I was saying he looked a bit silly pogoing about on the Brits. As much as Damon acts like a t*t, I can't hold a candle to his musical achievements."

I would love to see Damon and the rest of Blur live! This guy should just get over it and worry about himself.
