YOU'RE BEAUTIFUL singer James Blunt has lashed out at people who label him as "sensitive" and insists he is actually emotionally stunted.

Blunt has received acclaim for his debut album, Back To Bedlam, which features emotionally moving and melodic pop songs.

He explains, "Bob Dylan is a singer/songwriter and therefore is 'sensitive' or aware, maybe, but do you anticipate him crying on every street corner?

"I think sensitive is the wrong description of me. I'm British, actually, so quite bad at expressing myself in conversation, as any ex-girlfriend will tell you.

"I'm probably emotionally stunted."
