It's not a new hit song that has singer James Blunt in the spotlight, rather it's a controversial photo he posted to his Facebook page. Blunt posed for a snapshot outside a dilapidated building that is near former Nazi death camp Auschwitz, with the caption, "Uh, this is my hotel in Poland."

Even though the photo is not actually taken at the concentration camp, the implication -- intended or not -- was apparently enough to stoke outrage. The photo went up on Saturday and more than 6,000 people have commented on it and 17,000 people have "liked" it.

According to The Daily Mail, Blunt was actually staying in a five-star hotel while in Poland, where he performed in the Life Festival.
