Jake Bugg says he won't get involved in a war of words with One Direction on Twitter.

The 19-year-old from Nottingham was recently criticised on the social networking site by Louis Tomlinson and Niall Horan for making negative comments about the band.

Bugg also revealed his thoughts on the Brit Awards ceremony slating their choice of performers.

The singer was speaking to Newsbeat's Greg Cochrane at the NME Awards red carpet.
