Is James Blunt really dead?

According to several, possibly unreliable sources through out the internet, English singer-songwriter, best known for his songs "You're Beautiful" and "Goodbye, My Lover", has died at the age of 38 in Los Angeles.

According to, Blunt died Thursday after being rushed from his L.A. home after suffering a cardiac arrest. The Benkling article appears to be a copy-and-paste from a CNN Entertainment division, but the article is not visible anywhere on CNN's website, which has sparked controversy over the internet over Blunt's state.

At First Stop News, we would like to confirm that, as well as we know, James Blunt is NOT dead.

While many have likely not recalled of Blunt since his 2005 release of "Goodbye My Lover" - the fourth and final single off his debut album Back to Bedlam, Blunt has continued to stay some-what on the music scene, releasing his sophomore and junior albums All the Lost Souls and Some Kind of Trouble; the first of which was released in September 2007, and the latter in November 2010. He released a live album, Trouble Revisited in December 2011. Blunt even earned himself a Regenbogen Award in 2011.

As James Blunt's death has failed to appear on CNN, TMZ, the Associated Press, Reuters, or any other 100% reliable news source, James Blunt is not dead. He is 38, and as far as we know, happy and healthy.
