Brian with Delta

Former Westlife singer Brian McFadden has defended the lyrics of his new track, which critics have suggested is about date rape.

The song, Just The Way You Are (Drunk At The Bar), see’s Brain singing that he “can’t wait” to befriend an intoxicated girl to “take advantage” and “do some damage”.

McFadden, engaged to former Neighbours Aussie star, Delta Goodrem, has quickly explained the words.

He said, “For the record I wrote the song about how I love it when Delta has a drink (which is very rare) and she’s dancing. I am shocked at these ridiculous accusations about my new song that have been written.”

He also tweeted, “My new song is a tongue in cheek song about how i find it cute when my girl gets drunk… i am not promoting date-rape. what’s the next thing i am going to be labeled (sic) as from things i say. super intelligent reaction to my song. wish i was as clever as them. and yes it is dumb lyrics and a dumb beat…. that was the point when did i ever claim to be john lennon?”
