Holly Willoughby Slams BRIT Awards Paparazzi For 'Upskirting' Shots


Holly Willoughby Brit Awards

Holly Willoughby launched into a furious condemnation of paparazzi tactics yesterday, the day after she and a number of other female celebrities were pictured attempting to protect their modesty as they left the Brit Awards.

The 37 year old ‘This Morning’ presenter took to Instagram on Thursday (February 22nd), the day after the annual music awards bash in London, and bemoaned that “time’s apparently up” for Time’s Up, the much publicised campaign for gender equality.

“At the beginning of the night we held white roses and walked down a red carpet full of the hope and pride that comes with the #timesup campaign,” she wrote, captioning a photo montage of herself, Rita Ora, Louise Redknapp and Abbey Clancy all getting into cars and attempting to shield themselves against the intrusions of cameras held low to the floor.

Dua Lipa And Stormzy Win Big At BRIT Awards 2018, Ed Sheeran Snubbed


Brit Awards Stormzy Ed Sheeran Dua Lipa

It was an interesting night at the 2018 Brit Awards, with both Dua Lipa and Stormzy each taking home two awards and Ed Sheeran leaving empty-handed.

Indeed, it was the grime artist who took home two of the most prestigious awards of the evening, edging out the multi-platinum-selling Sheeran on both occasions to win British Male Solo Artist and the big prize of British Album of the Year for his debut LP Gang Signs & Prayer.

Having been nominated for five awards, the most of the evening and also a record for a female solo artist, 22 year old Dua Lipa took home two prizes, for British Female Solo Artist and British Breakthrough Act. However, her signature hit ‘New Rules’ was confusingly pipped to the post for British Single of the Year by the personality vacuum of Rag ‘n’ Bone Man, whose ‘Human’ single was released all the way back in July 2016.

Ariana Grande Pulls Out Of Manchester Tribute At BRIT Awards 2018


Ariana Grande Liam Gallagher Brit Awards

Brit Awards organisers have been left with a headache after Ariana Grande pulled out of a secretly-planned tribute to the victims of last year’s Manchester terror attack, leaving them scrambling to find a replacement with just hours to go ahead of tonight’s performance.

Reports on Wednesday (February 21st) suggested that the 24 year old pop star was lined up to perform at tonight’s ceremony at the O2 Arena in London, in tribute to the victims of the terrorist attack last May at Manchester’s Arena during one of her concerts, which was set to be the pinnacle of the ceremony.

However, it’s understood that Grande has fallen ill in recent days and, despite her intention to come to the BRIT Awards in spite of that, has been ordered by her doctor not to make the trans-Atlantic journey.

Clean Bandit Dismiss Kasabian Insults As "Jealousy"


Clean Bandit Kasabian Serge Pizzorno Brit Awards

British chart stars Clean Bandit have responded to comments made by rockers Kasabian in which they cast aspersions on their songwriting credibility.

Serge Pizzorno, guitarist and chief songwriter of the Leicester quartet, told The Independent last week that he was displeased at the group’s total lack of recognition at the upcoming Brit Awards. Despite scoring a fourth UK Number 1 album last year with 48:13, Kasabian received no nominations at all, which Pizzorno described as a “conspiracy” to “shut rock ‘n’ roll out.”
