5 minutes with Jaiden Micheal: Britain’s most brutal blogger

Posted by: on Sep 26, 2012 | No Comments

If  you recognise this Liverpool lad’s cheeky pout it may be from E4’s ‘Desperate Scousewives’ or perhaps more than likely from his notorious arguments with Lily Allen and Jodie Marsh. We catch up with Britain’s most brutal blogger.

What have you been up to since Desperate Scousewives?

I’ve literally not stopped! I even had a ‘holiday’ to Greece and ended up doing PA’s out there so didn’t get time to chill. I’ve been busy writing, producing and editing my own online sketch show which comes out this month on www.jaidentv.com …celebs beware 😉

We admire your title as ‘Britain’s most brutal blogger’ because you’re not afraid to say what you think. What is it about blogging that you love? Have you always been interested in writing?

I just love opinions, good or bad. So blogging for me is such a good way to talk about how I feel! I like the fact people actually give a toss about what I say; that’s flattering. I’ve always loved writing but I am no trained writer! I’m so unprofessional, haha. And for the record, nobody should ever be afraid to say what they think: opinions are like arseholes, everybody has one!

What’s the worst celebrity bitch fight you’ve had?!

There have been soooooo many I couldn’t possibly pick the worst…

You must get a lot of stick from other celebs and people on Twitter because of your remarks. How do you deal with the criticism?

I honestly don’t let it bother me! At the end of the day, I give my opinions and criticise
others so I’d never be a hypocrite and think someone else isn’t entitled to one. Nothing anyone can say to me can upset me as I know what I am. I get called “fat”: erm… I know I am. I get called “gay”: oh, thanks for the reminder… Yawn!!!

What would be your advice for those wanting to make it in television and media?

I’m no Brad Pitt, but I’d say never give up! As cliché as it sounds it’s true. If you want it, work for it!!!

And finally, you positively represent an open attitude towards your sexuality- what advice would you give to those wanting to come out but afraid to?         

It’s a tricky one because nobody should be forced out. I’ve had relationships with high profile “straight” celebs but wouldn’t go to the press; I’ve never done a kiss and tell story on one of them. The best advice is, YOU be YOU. Do what you want as it’s your life! And you only get one (unless you’re a cat or Jodie Marsh). God I’m full of soppy one liners today, haha!

Thanks Jaiden!
