If you want You're Beautiful as your wedding song - be warned, James Blunt thinks you're "f***ed up".

The 43-year-old, who released the single in 2004 which propelled him to stardom, said it's not a romantic song and clarified its real meaning.

"Everyone goes, ‘Ah he’s so romantic. I want ‘You’re Beautiful’ as my wedding song. These people are f**ked up," he told the Huffington Post.

"You get labelled with these things like, 'Oh, James Blunt. Isn’t he just a soft romantic?' Well, fuck that. No, I’m not. 'You’re Beautiful' is not this soft romantic fucking song.

"It’s about a guy who’s high as a fucking kite on drugs in the subway stalking someone else’s girlfriend when that guy is there in front of him, and he should be locked up or put in prison for being some kind of perv."

So there you go.
