  2. My comments, exactly. You go, girl! She won Album of the Year. Give her a chance to speak!

  3. Allegedly, Blur was poised to set a 'record' by playing the longest live set ever aired on the Brit Awards. The producers and show runners failed here, by not allowing enough buffer time for both the Album of the Year acceptance speech and the 11 exact minutes needed for Blur to set the new record.

  4. After the applause and cheers died down so that she could speak, she got all of TEN SECONDS before she was cut off! WTF is that????? And the whole video clip is only a minute long!

    That's just a tremendous show of disrespect on the part of the producers. British album of the year, and you give her ten seconds? "Yes, let's invite her up the stage and then cut her off so that Blur can break a record...." Appalling.

  7. @ELCID,

  8. Mike - you are a waste of human life. I only wish you the worst - and have no doubt you'll get it. Shallow cretin.

  9. girl has got attitude because its not easy growing up as a fatty who wants to eat nonstop but doesnt want to exercise and then sings about broken hearts and guys leaving her which is packaged and marketed and sold to deep & meaningful young women/girls and lipstick lesbians, as if she is a once in a lifetime, the one and only talent, unlike diana krall, joss stone, anastacia and all those other "talents" who were marketed to us as soulful singers because they had the voice of a black girl in a white girl's body.
    except those girls were skinny, and skinny people aren't relatable so its better she is a fatty, because fattys are sooo alternative.

    im not saying she can't sing but make her a size 6 or size 8 and all the sudden, her fan base will shrink (no pun intended) by 80%, because she is then just another skinny white girl singing.

  10. Six months ago Adele lost her voice, but by the looks of things she kept her appetite.

  11. Oh - and Jerry. I hope you die too :)

  12. Soon.

  13. Smooches ;)

  14. Oh, and Robert - how 'bout pogo-ing on a bush axe for us? Be a dear now - go on...

  15. @MIKE,
    That has NOTHING to with her artistry.
    Besides man, did you see how much weight she actually lost in the last 4 years?
    Stating the obvious does not make of you smart at all. On the contrary, it says A LOT about your social inadequacy.

    Posted by: ElCid | Feb 21, 2012 10:59:00 PM

    Are you guys get paid to post stupid things!?
    That is the only way I can understand such a display of not only ignorance, but also envy and most of all: astounding scarcity of brains!

  17. I could help you trolls do it - it's really easy. You just make sure the sharp side is facing you.

    I'm sure your self-loathing and capacity for hate will make it easy to leave this world. It's apparent you're really sad, pathetic individuals who just get a smirk from your snark. Why prolong things? It'll just get worse.

    It'll be real quick. It's only a few minutes of pain - then ... none.

    Want a diagram?

  18. I'm listening to her right now and love her for doing this. But to be fair, for someone who has been interviewed so much and won so many awards, she did spend a bit too much time saying Thank you. She actually had a fair bit of time. Not a ton, obviously, and they should have let her speak.

    I'm surprised that Blur started with Girls and Boys. Definitely my favorite song of theirs, but it reminds me of, what, 1990?

  19. Fat people are like slinkys - mainly useless, but can't help but laugh when you see one fall down a set of stairs.

  20. btw John, you're making it way too obvious that you're also fat and ugly yourself!

    Die in a fire. A fat fire.

  21. STARPEOPLE88 is an intellectual midget. so sad

    Posted by: redball | Feb 21, 2012 11:21:21 PM

  22. @ Paul,
    Girls and Boys is also one of my favorite songs of Blur, "The Universal" being the one I love the most.
    My guess is that, given they received the Outstanding Contribution to Music Award, it makes sense to start with a 1994 song which probably was their international breakthrough hit...

    Posted by: ElCid | Feb 21, 2012 11:21:28 PM

  23. the other fatphobes on here as well...intellectual midgetry is your curse.

    Posted by: redball | Feb 21, 2012 11:23:23 PM

  24. @STARPEOPLE88,
    I am fat too, just so you know. Am I Ugly? I don't know, someone else might answer that., seriously man, that's the kind of statement that makes people think gay people are as shallow as Paris Hilton.
    You might need to think a bit more before you write.
