Kasabian - Kasabian: BRIT Awards were 'awfully boring'

Kasabian's Tom Meighan has blasted this year's ''awfully boring'' BRIT Awards.

The frontman claimed the British music industry awards - which took place in London last month - have become far too ''corporate'' and politically correct, and he yearns for the days of rockers like Oasis causing havoc at the bash.

Speaking to BANG Showbiz at the Give It Up for Comic Relief fundraiser at London's Wembley Arena last night (06.03.13), he said: ''It didn't really cut it this year, did it? It was just awfully boring. Terrible. Not only am I thinking that, but everyone's thinking that.

''Everything's so corporate. It's not like... You know, people at the BRIT Awards when you had Oasis fighting Blur and Pulp upstaging Michael Jackson. That's not going to happen. We're too PC. Everything's set up and it's gotta run smooth.''

The 32-year-old star also took aim at BRITs organisers, feeling host James Corden ''died a death'' trying to keep the ceremony on track.

He said: ''Poor James Corden died a death again. I like him but it's not fair - they put him on the spot. I don't think he'll be doing it again.''

Kasabian - also including Sergio Pizzorno, Chris Edwards, Ian Matthews and Jay Mehler - performed at the Comic Relief charity event which was hosted by Russell Brand.

Proceeds from the event will help fight drug and alcohol addiction in Britain. Text ''GIVE'' to 70005 to donate £5.
