Brit Awards Promises To Diversify For Next Year's Ceremony


Brit Awards

Brit Awards bosses have promised to make next year’s ceremony more diverse, after facing criticism over last month’s nominees. At this year’s awards the only non-white nominees were in the international artist categories and chairman Ged Doherty has promised this will not be the case going forward.

In an open letter Doherty said: “There was an elephant in the room at the O2. As chairman of the BPI, the music association which organises the awards, I can tell you that it was sat firmly on my lap.”

Little Mix singer Perrie Edwards has been left with nasty burns on her hands and arms after an accident involving her boiler at her new home in Surrey.

The 22 year old singer took to the group’s official Twitter account to reveal a couple of pictures which show some painful-looking blisters and scalds on both her hands and up her forearms, which happened after the pilot light on her boiler “blew up” on Thursday night (February 25th).

“So today I had an accident… and by accident I mean I accidentally set myself on fire,” Perrie wrote. “The pilot light on my boiler blew up and it set my arm/hand on fire. Not a pleasant experience.”

Drake Skepta Brit Awards

Canadian rapper Drake, one of the biggest names in hip-hop, has surprisingly signed with a tiny independent label in London – according to Instagram at least.

The 29 year old star performed alongside Rihanna to an audience of millions at the televised Brit Awards on Wednesday night, but eschewed the glad-handing and back-slapping of the afterparty at London’s O2 Arena for a tiny venue in the East End, where he performed as a special guest of rap collective Section Boyz.

Fans who turned out at the tiny Village Underground venue to see the South London group were left gobsmacked when Drake, the biggest selling hip hop artist in America for the last half-decade, was brought out as a surprise guest.

In 2016, Tomlinson has been getting to grips with first-time fatherhood since his ex-girlfriend Brianna Jungwirth gave birth to their son, Freddie Reign, back in January. Speaking to ITV2 outside the O2 Arena, he said that “[Fatherhood] is good. It's intense. It's really exciting. This is my first time away from Freddie so it's tough.”

Adele dominated at this year’s Brit Awards, taking home four of the biggest awards of the night in addition to her show-stopping performance of new single ‘When We Were Young’ at the end of the evening.

The 27 year old Tottenham-born singer was named best British Female Solo Artist at the start of the ceremony, and her night only got better from that point onwards, as she also netted the Global Success Award, best British Single for ‘Hello’ and the evening’s most prestigious prize, best British Album for 25.

Adele’s acceptance speeches were among the viral moments of the evening, as she became increasingly lost for words as the evening went on. “To come back after so long away and be so warmly received means so much,” she said, “I got really lost for a while and I didn't know if I'd ever come back. For you all to be so kind to me is so nice.”
