UK NEWS/VIDEO: RIHANNA PERFORMS WITH THE KLAXONS AT THE BRIT AWARDS 2008

I have to say that I really enjoyed this performance. Both their tracks blended well together. I was impressed with this version.

On a whole though the annual Brit Awards, as usual, was a complete and utter wash-out!

The annoying Mika opened the show. Why? He should have left the stage once Beth Ditto joined him.

Kylie Minogue looked very stiff and sang slightly offkey throughout her performance, which was unsual because Kylie can sing. Also to top it off her new single is dreadful.

Leona Lewis and Rihanna were the only two black artists that were allowed to perform at the event, Kanye won Best International Male and pre-recorded his acceptance speech, and Kelly Rowland presented an award………(whoo whoo)

Sir Paul McCartney closed the show. Like we don’t see enough of that vain old rocker.

I watched Amy Winehouse’s ‘highly anticipated’ performance this morning (missed it last night). Her live performances are always a let down. I just don’t understand what it is she is trying to do half the time vocally. She sounds better on wax.

But as usual everybody praises the ‘British soul sensation’… “Oh Amy was magnificant” she gave a “stirring performance” and this morning I overheard a reporter state on the TV that “she gave the best live performance of her career. It was flawless”. 

Watch Amy’s “FLAWLESS” (kissing teeth/rolling eyes)  performance – ‘Love Is A Losing Game’

Listen all I know is if she – no you know what? let me not even take it there today because I won’t stop! 

Enjoy Rihanna and The Klaxons…..

  1. ladies and gentlemen….
    the crack-head shimmy..
    flawless? i think not.
    i used to love her, it did, however annoy me how much she was praised for “being different” or whatever…yea she can sing and all but DAMN so can Jill Scott, Erykah Badu and all the other black singers Amy doesn’t hold a candle to. Why do people embrace the white women with fucked up habits, yet when Whitney was going through her shit (after all her achievements, which might I add, Amy has not come close to) why does the media treat the black women like everyday garbage…when they get a little sidetracked?!! I miss Whitney! lol. okay, I miss the sober Whitney, but nonetheless, let’s give her a second chance…she, at least, deserves it!

    I’m tired of seeing loose cracked out white women being praised for their bullshit….so again (and then I’m shuting up Janice 😉

    Flawless? Hell Nah….BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! I want my money back!!
