Stone The Crows!

‘FROM Brit to the Brits – and last night was the British music industry’s annual turn to pat itself on the back and tell us all what a good job it is doing.

Best Urban Act 2006

And what better way than with an award ceremony that was the perfect reflection of the music scene at the moment – bland, insipid and with about as much edge as Chris Moyles’s belly?

The fact that Joss Stone won Best Urban Act says it all.

As the Mirror points out, she’s about as urban as a Friesian cow.

“She lives in the English countryside and makes her records in America,” it says. “How did she even qualify?”

She qualified because her parents once took her on a day out to Manchester…and because she’s got blonde hair, “great knockers” and looks good in a strapless dress.

If you ever doubted that looks were more important than vocal ability in the music business, then try to name a single successful female singer who looks anything other than great.

Before you can say “Michelle McManus”, we’re off to the Express which doesn’t even make a pretence that the Brits are about anything other than fashion.

It puts a picture of Denise Van Outen seemingly on her way to a toga party on its front page, while the Star focuses its leery gaze on Cheryl Tweedy’s cleavage.

They weren’t the only pair of tits on show last night, however – Little Britain’s Matt Lucas and David Walliams presented the best Brits song to Robbie Williams.’
