Stormzy lashes out at NME, calls them ‘a bunch of real life fucking pussyholes’

The magazine has angered the grime MC by presenting him as a “poster boy” for depression without his permission

Today (16 March), Stormzy aired his outrage at music weekly NME for using his image on the cover of its latest issue – an issue which focuses on depression.

“Depression: It’s time to talk” runs the cover line for this week’s magazine, out now. “Wise words from Stormzy, Gaga, Bastille and more.”

However, it appears the decision to use the image of Stormzy was made without prior permission, which is what has triggered the series of angry tweets. You can read the tweets below.

Stormzy appeared on Channel 4 News earlier this month speaking openly about mental illness. You can watch the video here.
