Tokyo non-visitor Labrinth isn't a huge fan of The X Factor.
Talking to the Metro about whether he'd ever go on his label boss Simon Cowell's reasonably popular TV show, he said: "What do you think I should do? For me, I think it’s absolute shit."
He went on to say that going on the show was mainly a way "to get a couple more Twitter fans".
We're sure that's not quite what Harry Styles mouthed in Matt Cardle's ear, but fair enough.
UPDATE: Labrinth has 'taken to Twitter' to refute the claims, saying: "I've gotta give it to the metro paper for there amazing ability to reconstruct words in controversial bullshit…"
