Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Entertainment -

Bri­tish singer-song­writer James Arthur (right) says grow­ing up with no mon­eym shaped his work ethic. “Be­ingB in bands and plug­ging awayaw with not many op­por­tu­ni­tiesop and no money forfo many years taught me aboutab work ethic. It made me ap­pre­ci­ateap what I had now,” he told hol­ly­woodlife.com.

The 28-year-old says re­al­i­tyre show, X Fac­tor, pro­vid­edpr him with a plat­form that has launched him and given him some longevity, but he felt lost when he first found fame. “I didn’t have a clue what was go­ing on. I was do­ing self-med­i­cat­ing and wasn’t in the right mind... But maybe I wouldn’t have had much to write about if I hadn’t pressed the self-de­struct but­ton! It’s re­lat­able. Ev­ery­body’s gone through some kind of strug­gle in their life, and I’d like to be the type of voice who talks about it,” he says.
