Mark Ronson to flog NME Award on eBay
- Mark Ronson »
After having his work labelled as “a bunch of nauseating oily sub-lounge covers” in NME’s Glastonbury coverage, Mark Ronson is to sell the NME Award he won for Best International Solo Artist on eBay after a writer from the paper contacted him to distance himself from the piece. As a result, the New York producer/DJ has decided to sell the “excellent doorstop”.
Posting under the title “NME IS FULL OF SH*T.. WHAT ELSE IS NEW” on his MySpace blog (here), Ronson remarks:
“I got the following email from a journalist at the NME in reference to what I imagine was a scathing review of my Glasto performance (if only I read the mag, I might know what it said....oh well)”.
Presumably the review in question was last week’s VITRIOLIC ATTACK on Ronson’s Other Stage performance, written under New Music Editor Alex Miller’s name.
The apparent grovel?
The item will apparently be listed on eBay once “the morons send it to me”.
