|Award or Perfume?|
Award shows are bad enough without having to invite Americans along to pretend they care that they've been nominated for a BRIT award. Now don't get me wrong I haven't jumped on the 'lets all hate America' bandwagon which seems to be very popular nowadays, but I just don't see why the likes of Rihanna and Justin Bieber would come all the way down here to see artists they've never even heard of get an award they only found out exsisted ten minutes ago.
The other thing that irritated me is that in an attempt to try and gather some British pride they got Dame Vivienne Westwood to design the award, which was a stupid idea really given that Vivienne Westwood is a designer of 'punk' clothing, resulting in an award that looks like a bottle of Geri Halliwell perfume.
What I can say about us British is that we know how to put on a show, even if you're not a fan of Plan B or Tinie Tempah you should watch the videos to the end just to see how over the top our award ceremonies are:
Plan B at the BRIT Awards '11
Tinie Tempah at the BRIT Awards '11
... God save The Queen?
