The Vamps singer Brad Simpson usually supports his friends' love lives, but if someone is dating a girl who's especially horrible, he's not afraid to tell them. Don't worry, though, he has a special method when it comes to delivering the news!

MTV recently chatted with the guys and James said that it's always best to drop subtle hints instead of rushing into it.

“You want to start off slow, I think,” he said. “I don’t think you want to just smash it in their [face] because they’re going to be a bit wounded. You don’t want to drop the bomb straight away. So usually you just kind of put subtle hints like, ‘She’s not that good, right? She’s not that great, man.’”

It's always good to be up front and honest with your friends, but you also have to remember that it's their life and they're free to do what they want with your advice. We definitely agree with James that it's best to ease into the topic slowly, though.

We hope Brad hasn't had to have the conversation with his friends too much!
