The Brits 09

So what did everyone think?

Personally... I kinda enjoyed it. Thought Matthew Horne and James Corden were hilarious (the Craig David boyage was too much LOL bless him), and Kylie was alright too.

Enjoyed the performances by Kings of Leon, Duffy and my favourite ladies Girls Aloud, brap! They finally got an award as well! Did you see how wasted Sarah was? HAHA!

But the performance that really smacked it was of course the Estelle and Ting Tings collabo - even though I'm fed up of hearing American Boy, it was a nice little mix that worked really well.

Surprised Katy Perry won the best international female award... where was Rihanna in the nominations?

So, soooo relieved Kanye won best international male! 808's and Heartbreaks is one hard album.

And was it just me, or did anyone else get confused about what decade we are in??? Neil Diamond, Iron Maiden, AC/DC, U2... WTF?! Old man rockers, go away! Especially you Bono! Actually you need to just die already. HOW ANNOYING IS HE?!

Anyways, that's my 50 pence on the matter. I will leave you with a YouTube link to the best performance of the night.

Prince Harry needs to hold it down

So Prince Harry has started up yet another race row.

This time, he has been accused of racism after telling black comedian Stephen K Amos: "You don't sound like a black chap." at a celebration of Prince Charles' 60th birthday.

This was apparantly Harry's idea of congratulating Mr Amos on his successful performance.

First there was the fancy dress Nazi uniform, then there was the "our little Paki friend" comment, and now this.

Harry, I beg you shut your mouth man. You're giving us white people a bad name, as well as your own family and the upper class. You're meant to be setting a bloody example you fool.

How are young people today, living in the multi-cultural society that we live in, supposed to relate to the Royal family when shizzle like this comes out? They're so out of touch man, it's embarassing.

Fix up!

Hold tight Noel Clarke

I know I'm a bit late, but I just wanted to dedicate one of my posts to the main man that is Mr Noel Clarke for his BAFTA win the other day.

For those who don't know by now, Noel won the Orange Rising Star Award, which was voted for by the great British public.

Noel is quoted to have said:

"It speaks volumes about what is happening in the world. If I'm not testament that a council estate kid can do all right then I don't know what is."

Brrrrrrap! That's what I'm talking about peeps!

Grove council estate boy done good. He even went to St. Charles, haha! Now that is what I call an achievement.

Big up yourself Noel and keep doing your thing. You're an inspiration.

Give the Oscar to Mickey Rourke

So I went to see The Wrestler the other day.

Someone had warned me beforehand it was 'shit' and that the ending was possibly the worst ever. But I just didn't believe her, and I had been looking forward to seeing this film for weeks, so yeah I watched it.

And it was fucking good!

The cinema dude told us that it was an 'emotional' film and 'harder to watch' than our other choice, Slumdog Millionaire. And yeah, it was emotional but the emotion was understated I'd say, and it actually didn't make me cry - I expected to be balling my eyes out watching it! I think the saddest part was after he had that sweet dance with his daughter and then had a little heart-to-heart with her - that got me a bit choked.

I also didn't realise it wasn't gonna be a typical 'Hollywood' film with loads of cheesy bits in it - very much like professional wrestling also - but it was the complete opposite. And no one could have predicted that ending, whether they felt it was good or bad (I'm still debating that, but I'm leaning towards the 'good' side). Randy's loneliness was very well portrayed and I felt that it produced a realistic picture of the world of professional wrestling.

I think I'm gonna add this to my DVD collection when it comes out. I ain't even seen any of the other Oscar-nominated films (I am dying to see Benjamin Button though) but fuck it, give the best actor award to Mickey and the supporting actress award to Marisa Tomei because she was fucking great as well.

Peace out.
