Singer Sandi Thom had an extremely weird video meltdown after the BBC refused to play her new track.
She took to Facebook to express her disgust that Radio 2 had refused to put her new single on their playlist, the Daily Mail reported.
The 34-year-old went to town on the broadcaster, saying she’s ‘fucking sick to death’ of her music being rejected, adding:
I wrote a song that is pop and catchy and fits their format and there is no reason why they shouldn’t play my music and I swear to God they have no idea how much it actually hurts when it’s been years and years trying to gain some kind of respect from these people.
Thom then takes aim at another broadcaster, Bauer Media, owner of 60 radio stations across the UK, who apparently also had the audacity to turn down her new song:
The other massive network in the UK, which is Bauer, also said no. That is basically 22 million people across the country who will not get to hear this song because of one person’s decision.
Honest to God I’m fucking sick to death of the bullshit this industry pulls on people like me and I’ve had it. Enough I’m done.Advertisement
She then signed off with this charming closing line: “Fuck you Radio 2. Fuck you Bauer network and fuck the lot of you. See you later. Radio 2, shove it up your arse because I really don’t care any more.”
Sounds like you care quite a bit, Sandi?
The singer hit the big time back in 2006, when her debut single ‘I Wish I Was a Punk Rocker’ shot to number one, knocking Gnarls Barkley’s ‘Crazy’ from the top of the charts.
Her career never took off, though, and none of her next 12 songs managed to crack the top 20.
