Here are some new pictures of the ladies from last night’s BRIT Awards in London. They’re basically the Grammys, but overseas. Rihanna took home the international female prize for a second year. Rihanna wore this Givenchy gown, which in my opinion, just makes her look old. I’m not a fan.
Lana Del Rey won the Breakthrough Award. “This award means much more to me than you know,” said the singer. She wore a gorgeous Vivienne Westwood gown. (Can I just add that I love the name Vivienne? What a beautiful name! If I were having any more kids, I’d keep it!)
Adele was again the big winner of the night, taking home the award for Album of the Year and Best British Solo Artist.
“It’s been an amazing year,” Adele said as she received the female artist statuette from petite pop star Kylie Minogue.
“I feel like a drag queen next to you,” joked the winner, who wore a sleek black Burberry gown but towered over Minogue. She thanked her record company “for letting me be the kind of artist I want to be.”
The show’s host, actor James Corden, cut off Adele’s second acceptance speech, prompting the singer to make a rude middle-finger gesture in frustration.
She stressed afterward that it was aimed at industry leaders, not her fans.
“I’m sorry if I offended anyone but it was the suits that offended me,” Adele said. “Thank you all very much and thanks to my fans. I don’t want them to think I was swearing at them.”
The show’s broadcaster, ITV, issued a statement apologizing to Adele for cutting her off.
“We regret this happened and we send deepest apologies to Adele that her big moment was cut short tonight due to the live show over-running,” ITV said.
Florence Welch wore a Alexander McQueen gown. Nicole Scherzinger wore a gorgeous yellow Versace dress. Jessie J wore a revealing red lace Falguni & Shane Peacock dress. Very Gaga-ish if you ask me.
