Speech Debelle Booed By Take That Fans At Video Game Launch
November 26, 2009
Speech Debelle was booed by fans of Take That last night (November 25) when she attempted to rap the band's 1993 hit 'Pray'.
The Mercury Prize-winner was jeered off-stage at the launch of the boy band's new video game, SingStar.
Debelle, real name Corynne Elliot, reportedly upset the 500-strong audience with her cover, and when they booed, she said: “I'm a rapper. I don't do Take Shit.”
Her reaction prompted host and star of Gavin and Stacey James Corden to respond, saying: “That was shit, anyone can rap”.
The actor-comedian then launched into his own rap, according to the Press Association.
Debelle's outburst came on the same day it was revealed that she had quit her record label over the poor sales of her debut album.
The London-born rapper complained that her label, Big Dada, had failed to capitalise on her Mercury Prize success. L
A host of stars, including Lily Allen and Kate Moss, joined Take That at the event last night.
