James Blake is an up and coming artist that is raising a lot of eyebrows. Moreover, he’s Jameela Jamil’s boyfriend and their relationship is something to die for. Recently though, Blake had to cancel his live European tour amid Coronavirus. Therefore, to compensate is many fans, he did a free live concert on Instagram. But, he didn’t forget to mock Gal Gadot’s ‘Imagine’ cover in the process!
Live concert on Instagram!
Recently due to the outbreak of Coronavirus, James Blake had to postpone his European Live tour. However, being the good guy that he is, he decided to make up for it by doing a live Instagram concert. He announced that:
As expected, fans were really hyped up about this. Just imagine, James Blake singing live for all his followers on Instagram with songs they requested. However, speaking of ‘imagine’, James Blake passed a witty remark on Gal Gadot’s heavily criticized Instagram post. She recently uploaded a star-studded cover of John Lennon’s ‘Imagine’, which got a lot of backlashes on Twitter. Needless to say, Blake couldn’t resist making fun of it either on Twitter:
Requests? I will of course be opening with ‘Imagine’.

You don’t expect anything less of James Blake either. But that’s just the kind of backlash that celebrities are getting for their shallow tributes to fans.
Fans have had enough of shallow tributes by celebrities
There’s been a general trend recently, where fans no longer buy lazy actions from well off celebrities. In a time when supporting communities is so important, people expect wealthy celebrities to be at the forefront of charities. They want their favorite actors and artists to lead the efforts to provide relief to those affected by COVID-19. And, if we’re being honest, the fans are right. They should try to judge these stars in their actions and contributions to society. James Blake didn’t get the same backlash because he arranged a whole live concert for his fans. Sadly, other stars have to do more than just clapping hands on their balconies or sing a cringe version of ‘Imagine’.
