In an interview with NME for this week’s issue, Flowers had a few words for the “Blurred Lines” artists, holding no sympathy for their court predicaments. He actually agrees 150% with the verdict handed down (the songwriters will pay $7.4 million in damages to the family of Marvin Gaye) and said they’re just two of a handful of people that should be getting sued.
There are so many bands who should get sued. I’m so sick of hearing people steal. I hate it. I hear it all the time, but I’m not gonna tell you which bands. I won’t because I don’t wanna start a whole thing.
With The Desired Effect due out on May 18, Flowers seems intent on burning all the bridges before his album drops.
