David Cameron also fan of Springsteen and the Smiths, but isn't too keen on Miley Cyrus.

Casually discussing his musical preferences, British prime minister David Cameron shared fondness of several guitar-driven acts, naming the likes of Bruce Springsteen and Coldplay among personal favorites.

Naming Swedish folk duo First Aid Kit as the last act he's seen in concert, Cameron went on to pinpoint his favorite artists. "The Smiths, Bruce Springsteen," he told Daily Mail (via Digital Spy). "I play Coldplay and Mumford & Sons far too much. Sometimes I have music to relax to, that I automatically switch off to."

The premiere then gave full support to Spotify streaming service, adding, "I like Spotify. It's good because you can choose a track you like and then press 'radio' and it plays lots of songs like it."

Switching to his children's musical taste, Cameron noted that although his kids are Hannah Montana fans, they still haven't fully realized that it's in fact Miley Cyrus. "My children are too young," he said. "They knew Hannah Montana and luckily they haven't made the link yet, so don't put this in the paper! They haven't connected this lovely Hannah Montana, who is now this person twerking."

Asked to comment on the controversial teen star, Cameron briefly noted: "I don't want to get drawn into all that. I've got into enough trouble commenting on celebrity issues recently so I think I will pass!"

    "I like Spotify. It's good because you can choose a track you like and then press 'radio' and it plays lots of songs like it." Was this quote said by an 8 year old or by the British Prime Minister? Find out tonight on Kid or Politician? !
    What a bellend! (sorry Dannym95)

    Thanks to political hooliganism (in other words: "MUUH CONSERVAPARTY IS THE BEST, YEEER LABOUR PARTEH IS SHITE"), we have a prime minister who's an utter idiot... once again. At least he's an idiot who likes The Smiths... although I doubt Morrissey likes him.
    I support spotify, and I'm a fan of Foo Fighters, The Beatles, and more! See, there's another random opinion. Make an article out of that sometime too.
    "They knew Hannah Montana and luckily they haven't made the link yet, so don't put this in the paper!" Lol.
    Oh boy, some politician is a fan of really boring music! Fucking shocker right there.
    Yo PM, you know how I know you're gay? You like Coldplay... Try and enjoy Spotify and other sites you enjoy before you go and accidentally blacklist everything, ok Davey-boy?
    In case you don't know. Cameron is a ****ing wanker. That guy could hang himself and i'd dance in joy. The bad part is that i'm not even joking. Seriously, **** that guy.
    I hate David Cameron he's such a try hard celebrity wannabe, this boner is in charge of a country? No wonder Britain sucks so much.
    Our politicians are an embarrassment to our nation. As if being British wasn't embarrassing enough in the first place.
    I'm not embarrassed to be British at all. I'm not a patriot or anything, but there's not much reason for me to dislike the country I live in. There are few countries who I would consider to be 'free-er' than us, we're doing pretty well with employment, our economy is still alive and we're not really doing anything (middle-east aside...) that makes the whole world look at us and think; "Wow, what a knob."
    Some of us have done a bit in the middle east , in fact part of my British foot is still over there . Could be worse though , could have been in the U.S.Army , those guys get shafted for the length of time they get posted over there . I'm not going to comment on their training or tactics , let's just say I'm glad I'm not a yank . (now here comes the opinions of the Call of Duty warriors !)
