JOEL Creasey is in a celebrity feud with one of Australia’s most popular singers.
During an intense Q+A with news.com.au (which you can watch in the video player above) Creasey said he’s feuding with Riptide singer, Vance Joy.
According to Creasey, whose new show Take Me Out premieres on Channel 7 tonight, the celebrity beef started at last year’s ARIAs.
“I am a big fan and I also think he (Joy) is very handsome, but my boyfriend also overheard him bagging me out the entire time I was on stage at the ARIAs,” Creasey told the Herald Sun.
“I had interviewed him earlier that night on the red carpet, so I was like, ‘Vance, what is going on?’
“Obviously he does not find me funny, but I say, ‘Take a ticket, honey, join the queue’, there are plenty of those people.”
Vance Joy, whose real name is James Gabriel Keogh, recently told his side of the story.
“Joel was introducing a category with Julia Michaels, the singer/songwriter,” Joy said to the Herald Sun.
“He was just being himself, being funny, but at the time I mistakenly interpreted what he was saying as hanging her out to dry. I felt like he about threw her under the bus so I verbalised my negativity.”
Joy went on to compliment the stand-up comedian, saying, “He’s a super-talented funny guy who’s doing really well”.
His famous feud wasn’t the only thing Creasey revealed during his Q+A with news.com.au.
The comedian, 28, opened up about the biggest celebrity he’s pashed, the most he’s been paid for a corporate gig and what he stole from the set of his new show, Take Me Out.
On the dating program, which kicks off tonight at 7.30pm, a single male is introduced to a panel of 30 girls and tries to persuade them to keep their lights on so he can choose one for a potential date on the Gold Coast.
Creasey is hilarious as host of the show, but the real stars are the 30 women who aren’t shy about bagging out the fellas if they’re not keen on them.
“It was funny, they got really brutal about guys that I was certain would be their type,” Creasey told news.com.au.
“The best comment was when a girl called Carly said (to one of the men), ‘If you’re milk, I’ve just become lactose intolerant!’ It was day one, guy one, and I thought, ‘Oh my god, you girls are not holding back!’
“I’m meant to be everyone’s wingman so I’m a bit torn when someone says something like that. I feel sorry for the guy but the stand-up comedian inside of me goes, ‘Hilarious, good one, babe!’”
When all 30 of the girls turn their lights off to indicate they’re not interested, it’s called a “blackout” and the guy is sent home without a date.
“I’m a cold-hearted person and when we talked about it in production meetings I thought, ‘This will be so funny, I can’t wait for a blackout’,” the comedian said.
“Then it actually happened and I’m looking around going, ‘Who’s going to comfort this poor guy?’ Then I realised it’s my job and it was quite awkward. There was a lot of cringey hugging and then I just tried to get him off the stage.”
Creasey said the producers then managed to sink the boot in even further.
“The producers go all out and they made the guy walk off the stage to All By Myself as the girls waved him off. It was pretty hardcore.”
