BRIT awards

Scottish-born singer and nephew of Peter Capaldi, Lewis Capaldi, has won hearts all over the nation with his HILARIOUS social media antics and voice of a gravelly angel.

His new album, Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish Extent, is out May 17 and features his UK Number 1 platinum-selling single Someone You Loved. It's officially the longest running number one single of the past 25 years, so he's hit the big time.

Part of the reason why he's found chart success is his campaigning on Twitter and Instagram, using absolutely gas photos of himself sporting various eccentric sunglasses and filming his strange antics.

If you haven't seen the thread of him having to unclog his toilet, you've missed out. Our personal fave is the stream of himself listening to Ariana Grande's latest album, which was set to knock his tune out of the charts.

In fact, his song made it back into the top 10, reaching number one and staying there. We're SO glad it did, because this down-to-earth chap with a love for Tinder deserves it.

After supporting Picture This at their five consecutive 3Arena nights recently, Capaldi is coming back to Dublin for his very own 2020 arena tour. 

Sunday March 8, 2020 at Dublin's 3Arena sold out in minutes, as well as the rest of the UK tour dates, but our boy has hooked us up with an extra date on March 9, 2020.

He's also initiating his special LIVELIVE programme to support fans experiencing emotional difficulties and have concerns about attending shows.


There'll be a team at each venue who are expertly trained and qualified in assisting with panic, anxiety or any other concerns fans may have. Capaldi created the scheme after his own experiences with anxiety had a dramatic effect on him.

Speaking about the idea, the singer said; "I really wanted to put something in place to help those people feel comfortable and offer them support to allow them to experience the shows."

The 22-year-old's tunes have been streamed over 600,000 times, and the youngster was shortlisted for the BBC Critics Choice Award. Tickets from €37.35 are on sale now via Ticketmaster, grab yours now.

Stop the world, we're getting off. Beyoncé and Jay-Z have once again proven how iconic and culture-shaping they are by putting a painting of Queen Meghan Markle behind them, and now it's for SALE in poster format.

The Carters won the Best International Group gong at The Brit Awards over the weekend, and paid tribute to the Duchess of Sussex herself in an ode to their incredible APESH**T music video in the Louvre.

Captioning the unreal video, Beyoncé wrote;

"Thank you to the Brits for the award for Best International Group. I won this award back in 2002 with my besties, Kelly and Michelle." Destiny's Child is for life, it's not a phase, mom.

"How lucky am I to have been in a group with my other best friend, the GOAT Hova. In honour of Black History Month, we bow down to one of our Melanated Monas. Congrats on your pregnancy! We wish you so much joy," she concluded.

Well, all other artwork is now irrelevant. The Renaissance is CANCELLED. The Louvre is to be shut down, except for this one painting that precedes all others. Picasso never happened. It's only Meghan Mona Lisa that matters.

Prolific artist Tim O'Brien is the man behind the amazing painting, and has done some amazing works to represent American politics and culture.

O'Brien works as a professor at the Pratt Institute and is one of the world's most famous illustrator, having covering Time magazine over and over again.

Every wall can now be dedicated to the Duchess yourself, because these posters are for sale. If you have $100, that is. If you're a rich b*tch, we HIGHLY recommend purchasing this rare art form.

O'Brien's website has loads of unreal work up for sale as prints, and even has a Beyoncé feature in Elizabethan garb, reminiscent of her Mrs. Carter world tour announcement. It's $85: Worth it.

Jess Glynne's Brit Awards performance has been hailed as "inspirational" after she removed her makeup during the song, backed by a legion of women.

She performed her hit single Thursday surrounded by fellow ladies removing their cosmetics in front of the audience, and we got CHILLZ (They're multiplyin').

Glynne looked stunning in a white strapless dress for the rendition, and emoved her false eyelashes and wipes off her eyeshadow during the lyrics; "I won’t wear makeup on Thursday, 'cause who I am is enough”.

The star was joined by a group of fellow women who also donned white for the occasion, and simultaneously removed their makeup using hand towels in front of vanity mirrors.

Halfway through the tune, the British singer was joined by two-time Grammy winner H.E.R, and the standout moment became all the more powerful.

A video of countless women removing makeup played behind them, showing the need to fight back against society's strict and unrealistic beauty standards for women.

Twitter has gone absolutely wild with praise for the pair, with one person even tweeting; “That was one of the most empowering performances I’ve ever seen." YAS.

The moment came just after The 1975 frontman and absolute feminist legend Matt Healy accepted band’s award for “Best British Group” and spoke out about misogyny in the entertainment industry.

The relevance; we heart.

Healy quoted an article written about singer Ryan Adams by friend and music journalist Laura Snapes, who writes for The Guardian and Pitchfork.

“Male misogynist acts are examined for nuance and defended as traits of ‘difficult’ artists, while women and those who call them out are treated as hysterics who don’t understand art.”

Bravo Jess, and Bravo Matt. We love you both, keep slamming the ridiculous standards of the music business.

Piers Morgan has taken to Twitter to call out comedian Jack Whitehall and girl band Little Mix for 'fat-shaming' him at the Brit Awards. 

Jack Whitehall was hosting the awards, during which he made his way around the room toi chat to each table of guests.

When he made it to Little Mix's table where band members Jesy Nelson, Perrie Edwards, Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Jade Thirlwall were sitting, he cracked a joke about Piers Morgan, who has previously criticised the girls. 

'Piers Morgan. He didn't like that picture where you stripped off naked which is weird because four chins and voluptuous breasts – it must have been like looking in the mirror,' Jack joked to the girls, who laughed nervously in response.  

'Turning to Jesy he continued: 'What would you say to that dusty wasteman?'

The singer exclaims 'Jack!' in response to his words. 


A post shared by Little Mix (@littlemix) on

Piers soon took to Twitter following the exchange to express his disgust at being fat shamed by the comedian, however his destain was directed more squarely at the girl band.  

'Shocked & disappointed to see @LittleMix LAUGH as @jackwhitehall fat-shames me on national television.'

'It’s just this kind of public negative body image mockery that the same @LittleMix campaigned against & of which I am now a victim,' he tweeted. 

'Shame on you, ladies! #BRITS.'

He then directed his tweets to Jack Whitehall, saying: 'And as for chins, at least I’ve got some, you chinless little weed.'

Jack has since liked Piers' tweet. 


We had NO idea that Beyoncé, Jay-Z and Meghan Markle were linked in any way, but the Carters' tribute to the Duchess of Sussex took everyone by surprise.

The married power couple were honoured at the 2019 Brit Awards, winning the prize for Best International Group, which Beyoncé won alongside Destiny's Child in 2002.

Though they weren't actually in attendance at the O2 in London, they graciously accepted their trophy with a surprising video message, and a surprise for Meghan.

At the beginning, Beyoncé and JAY-Z recreate their iconic Louvre museum music video for APESH*T, where they pose in front of Leonardo da Vinci’s infamous Mona Lisa. 

This time, in the world-famous painting’s place is a portrait of Meghan Markle herself donning a sparkling tiara and pearl necklaces.

“Thank you so much to the Brit awards for this incredible honour,” Beyoncé quotes to the camera. “You guys have always been so supportive. Everything is love. Thank you.”


A post shared by Beyoncé (@beyonce) on

The rapper then replies to Beyoncé's thank you message, cheekily saying, “You’re welcome,” and then the unreal duo turn to look at the portrait.

Beyoncé later shared an image to Instagram of the portrait, captioning it with a reference to Destiny's Child;

“Thank you to the Brits for the award for Best International Group. I won this award back in 2002 with my besties, Kelly and Michelle,” she wrote. “How lucky am I to have been in a group with my other best friend, the GOAT Hova."

Beyoncé gave a short explanation of the King and Queen of Hip-Hop's choice to include Meghan, congratulating her on the royal pregnancy.

“In honour of Black History Month, we bow down to one of our Melanated Monas,” she wrote. “Congrats on your pregnancy! We wish you so much joy.” Awwww.

Artist Tim O’Brien's illustration previously appeared on the cover of the alumnae magazine for Meghan’s sorority, Kappa Kappa Gamma.

Meghan is celebriting her baby shower in New York with her close gal pals, and has previously spoken about her bi-racial background.

“While my mixed heritage may have created a grey area surrounding my self-identification, keeping me with a foot on both sides of the fence, I have come to embrace that,” she wrote for Elle in 2015.

“To say who I am, to share where I’m from, to voice my pride in being a strong, confident mixed-race woman… I am enough exactly as I am.’" Meghan continued.

Meghan's mother, Doria Ragland, is black and attended her wedding last year to Prince Harry.

Congrats to the Carters on their win, and to Meghan for having the honour of Beyoncé saying your name. What we'd pay for that prize…

So we're obviously massive fans of Ed Sheeran here at the SHEmazing! headquarters, but when we saw these snaps of the star, we nearly couldn't cope.

If it was possible for us to love the red-haired singer more than we already did, then that's what happened when when we laid our eyes on this image of Ed leaving the Brit Awards after-party, hand-in-hand with his long-term girlfriend Cherry Seaborn. 

Ed decided to go barefoot after his GF's Louboutin heel snapped, giving her his shoes to wear instead. 


A post shared by People Magazine (@people) on

Predictably, our hearts completely melted.

And to be honest, she actually kind of rocks this look.  

Ed even carried Cherry's heels for her after they snapped, what an absolute gentleman.

The couple have been friends for years, and have been dating for two years.

Where can we get ourselves a gent like Ed?


Ed Sheeran's Brit Awards performance was absolutely deadly, and when Stormzy arrived on stage to assist Ed with his symphonic sounds, we nearly lost it. 

He performed his two new singles Castle On The Hill and Shape Of You, with Stormzy collaborating on the latter to create an amazing new song. 

The new song is absolutely unbelievable, and is being hailed as a "work of art" by fans, who are keeping their fingers crossed that grime artist Stormzy might make a guest appearance at some of Ed's shows on his world tour.

Not content with re-creating one amazing tune, Ed Sheeran followed in his own footsteps by dropping not one, but two new versions of Shape Of You this morning.

The second remix is by Major Lazer, who headlined at Longitude last year, and the electronic music collective have made their version of the song almost unrecognisable.

Ed Sheeran has clearly brought his A-game after his 365 day sabbatical. 




Last night, the Brit Awards hosted some amazing musicians to celebrate a year of fabulous music.

When performing, Katy Perry decided to commit her set to the year in politics, as she put on a politically charged act that paid homage to the current state of American and worldwide governmental relations.

The performance included 20 foot tall skeletons who had a remarkable resemblance to Donald Trump and Theresa May, who were shown holding hands and dancing together, while hundreds of tiny versions of the White House frolicked around them.

It was one of these tiny houses, with a backup dancer inside, that caught the eye of fans.

During her new song Chained To The Rhythm, the dancer promptly fell off the stage in the most confidant manner possible.

We've all had that horrible moment where we've gone down the stairs and missed a step, but this little guy just felt that fear on a global level, as his tumble was posted on Twitter for the world to see.

Luckily, the white house costume means his face is hidden so his dignity is intact, but we hope the rest of him is too after that fall. 




While we eagerly anticipate the BRIT awards this evening, it seems that only half of One Direction is set to make it to the prestigious awards show. 

Louis Tomlinson and Liam Payne are set to grace the red carpet while the rest of us are left to wonder what the hell happened to the rest of them. 

Despite becoming a daddy in the past few weeks, Louis Tomlinson flew back to the UK from his current abode in Los Angeles. 


Workout done off to party!!! #britawards2016

A photo posted by Liam Payne (@fakeliampayne) on

Meanwhile Liam was pumping up a sweat this afternoon ahead of the show as he shared a much appreciated snap of his current ab situation to Instagram today. 

As for the location of the other two, your guess is as good as ours. 

According to the Sun, Harry simply did not want to go. 

"This could have been one last hurrah for the boys at what could be their last BRIT Awards as a band," said a source to the paper. 

"But Harry has shown no interest in attending."

As for Niall, it seems that he is currently back-backing through Thailand and is taking a break from social media much to the dismay of his followers. 

In fact many One Directioner's actually can't cope with not knowing the location of the Mullingar native: 

Yep, it seems like the hiatus is well and truly upon us.  



In the year that we all became Beliebers (who would have thought?), the Brit Awards have honoured the bad boy by making him into an emoji.

The 21-year-old is set to play at the award show later this month, and to celebrate, JB has an official animated icon.

Of course his fans went crazy for it, and to be honest, we're loving it too. 

One fan said on Twitter, "Aww @justinbieber is the cutest emoji ever," while another wrote, "OMG! LOVE the Justin Bieber emoji. He defo gets our vote!!"

Justin is set to perform alongside Rihanna, The Weeknd, Coldplay and Little Mix on 24 February, so it's going to be some show.

But for now… we'll BRB, going to check out this new emoji. #JustinBieberBRITs.


As claims her marriage is on the rocks, and even further claims that she's secretly seeing grime artist, MC Meridian Dan, Lily Allen has launched an attack at the BRIT awards for not nominating any grime or rap artists.

She slammed "music industry figures" for not paying attention to un-signed artists and said that people who "work at major labels" are focusing on the wrong thing.

The singer wrote on her Facebook page a lengthy rant about her feelings, and let's just say, she didn't hold back. 

"The voting academy consists of 1000 music industry figures', and here lies the problem, music industry figures don't necessarily care about music, they mostly care about themselves, they vote tactically for their labels artists to win or so that their competitors at other labels DON'T," she began.

"Skepta JME and Stormzy are all unsigned artists, who would gain from them winning anything? In fact them being nominated or even winning poses a direct threat to 'music industry figures'.

"Imagine if Skepta or Stormzy won , who would they thank in their speeches, who's ego would get massaged?"

"The artist could benefit immensely that's for sure this is an an example music industry figures throwing artists under the bus for personal gain and it's not a culture , it's a religion."

We can see another nominations controversy starting.


Little Mix did well out of yesterday's BRIT nominations, getting two nods for the upcoming awards – Best British Single and Best British Video for Black Magic.

Jesy Nelson saw the news first via email, and did what any BFF would do after hearing something exciting – headed straight to the WhatsApp group.

"The moment Jesy found out before the rest of us," Jade Thirwall wrote on the official Little Mix Instagram page yesterday, sharing a screenshot of Jesy's adorably excitable messages.

"I can't stop crying omg," Jesy wrote to her bandmates.

"Read the email read the email guysssssssss read it read it."

Yup, that sounds like us pretty much any time we see something we NEED to share.

The girls are also lined up to perform at this year's BRITs, with Jesy saying via Instagram that it was a dream the band had shared "for four years."

Fingers crossed the ladies do win on the night, because that's gonna be one hell of an awards speech.
