The Verve's Richard Ashcroft thinks musicians should stay out of politics and 'stop making speeches'



-Ashcroft says stars who can't write a song/sing/perform end up being like "semi-political leaders" to hide what they can't do
-Says audiences don't want to spend their hard-earned money to hear an artist go on a rant about who they should vote for
-Says they should entertain the world
-Points to David Beckham as an example: We want to see him play soccer, not give great speeches

Lest we not forget the time he wanted to kill off the word "woke" and claimed Katy Perry was being political!

Shout-out to nutmegdealer who pointed out that Richard turns 47 today!
