Jay Sean - Jay Sean Angry About Brits Snub

R&B star JAY SEAN has hit out at organisers of the BRIT Awards for snubbing him in this year's (11) nominations, blasting the ceremony as "fake" and insisting it is based on "a lot of politics" in the music industry.
The Ride It hitmaker, who is co-signed by rap superstar Lil Wayne, failed to earn any nods for this year's (11) London awards when the shortlist was announced earlier this week (begs10Jan11) - and he's fuming about missing out.
He tells Britain's Daily Record newspaper, "The list of nominations is to be expected. I've got to say I'm not a not a fan of award shows.
"I think they are fake and there's a lot of politics behind it. It doesn't represent anything about who's doing what. Half the people on the list have hardly sold any records. These are cool names that you drop at cocktail parties. They don't represent the scene very well. What is the purpose of award shows?
"I remember when Craig David was the king and you couldn't get bigger than him. Yet he was not nominated for any Brits - so it goes to show the whole thing for me just doesn't represent anything."
