Jamie T doesn't care what other people think of his songs.

The 'Sheila' hitmaker insists he is only making music for himself and hates people talking to him about the meaning behind his tracks as it "ruins" the lyrics for him.

He said: "You've got to understand that I don't write music for anyone, I write it for myself and that's it. And I don't have to speak to anyone or answer to anyone, about anything, because it's for me.

"I know what the fking songs are about, but I don't care to talk about it, because they're quite personal to me. I've written the song. I've done my piece.

"I'm not sitting here trying to pour my heart out. I'm just jumbling things up and throwing them at the fking page. I'm not trying to represent anything. I haven't got a fking manifesto here, y'know? I'm not trying to explain things to people. Whatever you think it's about, it's about.

"No - I fking hate it when musicians sit there and tell you what a song's about. I don't wanna hear what your story is. You're ruining my story. The one I've made up in my head. Why are you telling me? I don't wanna hear it."

The 'Calm Down Dearest' singer also admits he finds it amusing when people think he has used them as the inspiration behind his songs.

He told Quietus.com: "Someone said to me once, 'Ah you know this guy I know' and obviously that guy's been out there telling his mates I've written a song about him. F**king liar.

"I tend to leave mates' names out of songs anyway - it's mean isn't it?"
