Tinie Tempah praises 'beautiful' Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie


Tinie Tempah says Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are "humble people".

The 5 Minutes rapper met the famous couple at the BAFTAs and described them as "very beautiful", insisting they made me realise it is possible to be a star "without become a real a-hole". Speaking to the Mail on Sunday newspaper's Event magazine, he said: "I met Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie at the BAFTAs."

"They're both very beautiful people, in every sense - the aesthetics are amazing - but I always looked for humility in these kinda stars and they really are humble people. They offer you hope that you can reach the heights of stardom without becoming a real a-hole."

However, Tinie was less than impressed with Gary Barlow, insisting despite his talent "as a songwriter" he has lost respect for the Take That star after it emerged he'd been caught up in a tax avoidance scheme.

He insisted: "That tax thing is a bit annoying. Actually, it makes me angry because I pay my taxes. Apparently there are people fighting Barlow's corner saying, 'Let him keep the money'. Like, really? I respect him as a songwriter but not as a taxpayer."
