Stormzy Takes Aim At Theresa May With Grenfell Criticism At The Brits

Stormzy Takes Aim At Theresa May With Grenfell Criticism At The Brits

His enraged rap in the closing moments of the ceremony - which started "Theresa May, where's the money for Grenfell?" but went on to eviscerate politicians in numerous other ways - forced Number 10 to defend its response to the tragedy.

'Yo, Theresa May, where's that money for Grenfell?

He also attacked the government saying "you criminals, and you got the cheek to call us savages".

LONDON (AP) — Hometown London stars Dua Lipa and Stormzy were both double winners Wednesday at the United Kingdom music industry's Brit Awards, where many guests wore white roses to symbolize the fight against sexual harassment and assault.

The American pop star was due to take to the stage to remember the victims of the attack that took place at her concert in May past year, but was not well enough to travel to the UK. So it was left to Liam Gallagher to lead the tributes with the Oasis song Live Forever.

The grime star was performing at the awards ceremony, where he picked up the award for best album, on which LBC is mentioned. "We are protesting in our own way and this how we're going to make a difference".

The Brits have often been a magnet for controversy -- Pulp singer Jarvis Cocker invaded a performance by Michael Jackson in 1996 and then-deputy prime minister John Prescott was doused by a bucket of ice water in 1998.

Other winners include Gorillaz (British Group), Jorja Smith (Critics" Choice), Rag "N' Bone Man (British Single), Foo Fighters (International Group), and Steve Mac (British Producer of the Year).

"This country is a lovely place, its part of a attractive world, but don't let it become isolated, don't let yourselves be cut off", he said.

Victims of the Manchester Arena bombing were also honoured at the Brits.

"I think it's brilliant that it's come to the fore now", said Paloma Faith, who arrived holding real white roses. "What you thought we just forgot about Grenfell?". The 27-year-old Suffolk native was handed the Brits Global Success Award. His album "Divide" has sold more than 12 million copies around the world.

Elaine Crowley got a tattoo of a unicorn which she revealed to viewers on the Elaine show on TV3 yesterday.

With her self-titled album full of anthemic tracks straddling that sweet spot between adventurous music production and earworm hooks, there is a sense of destiny to Lipa's career, which began to take shape nine years ago in the Balkan country of Kosovo.

"She hasn't said anything".

Having just given his acceptance speech for the most sought-after award of the night, the Shut Up rapper took to the main stage at London's O2 to perform a medley of his work.

Last night, the who's-who and who's-that of the British music industry gathered in London for the annual BRIT Awards.
