The new single was a reworked version of the original version of ‘Do they Know it’s Christmas?’ and Emeli Sande said that she didn’t agree with some of the new lyrics, tweeting it “needs changing” or else a “whole new song is required.”
She tweeted an open letter to her fans explaining where she stood amongst the controversy surrounding the charity single.
This comes after a huge wave of critisium from celebrities and the public alike after allegations of the celebrities involved avoiding tax. Blur’s Damon Albarn claimed the song patronises Africa, and Lilly Allen called the process ‘smug’.
We’re expected to splash out £1.7 billion on Christmas gifts on the internet alone this year.
This Friday, known as Black Friday, is where stores expect a mass invasion of shoppers in the run up to Christmas.
It has been predicted that £5 billion will be spent on this one day.
