BRIT awards

Madonna’s onstage BRIT Awards tumble, or ‘Capegate’, as it is being referred to, has been one of the biggest talking points of the week.

And while Madonna has taken a dignified stance on the debacle, one person who wasn’t afraid to be a little bit controversial is the designer of the now infamous cape, Giorgio Armani.

Naturally, talk turned to the embarrassing incident during the Emporio Armani AW15 show in Milan this weekend, and the designer didn’t exactly hold back when quizzed over Madonna’s fall.

“Madonna, as we know, is very difficult. This cape had a hook and she wanted a tie, and she wasn’t able to open it with her hands. That’s all there is to it,” he told the Associated Press, with a smile.

Of course, Madonna had laid blame on the cape, claiming that it had been tied too tightly for her to work with during her performance.

While Giorgio’s take on the situation seems pretty fair, we wonder what Madonna will have to say about being branded “difficult”! 



Oh gaaawd…these are the kind of photos that make us want to never drink again.

Ed Sheeran had many things to celebrate last night after walking away with two BRIT Awards, one for Best British Solo Artist and one for Best Album. And it looks like he definitely made the most of his big night, as he was pictured leaving the Warner Music after-party looking… well…  little worse for wear!

Poor Ed had to be held up by his security team and manager who led him to a waiting taxi:

One onlooker said that the singer “was so dazed that he managed to walk head first into a lamp post before finding his footing,” according to MailOnline. Ah, we’ve all been that soldier, to be fair!

The 24-year-old had taken to the mic at the Warner party to entertain guests, including Daisy Lowe, Charli XCX, Rita Ora, Rob Pattinson and FKA Twigs, and Orlando Bloom, and judging by these pictures, the drinks were definitely flowing.

Rather than heading to McDonalds and home to bed (as we would have done), Ed instead went on to The Box nightclub in London where he continued partying until 6am with pal Sam Smith.

We reckon the Thinking Out Loud singer has a VERY sore head this morning… but at least he’s waking up to the news that his two Irish gigs sold out completely within just one hour earlier today! Every cloud, eh…



Kim Kardashian and Taylor Swift sat front row together at last night's BRIT Awards, and it was the start of something beautiful.

The two stars were seen looking seriously pally at the Grammy Awards earlier this month, but last night they debuted their BFF bond properly for the first time.

For one, the pair did some serious bumping and grinding together during Kanye West's performance of his new single, All Day:

And to really make Twitter implode, they posed together for some epic photos. Like this one of Taylor, Kim, Kanye and Sam Smith:


Britt Awards!!! @TaylorSwift @samsmithworld

And THIS ONE, of Taylor, Kim and Karlie Kloss:

That's our new friendship goal, right there.

So could this friendship be set to last? Well, given that Taylor seems to have forgiven Kanye for interrupting her on stage back in 2009 and the pair are now set to record some music together, we reckon she and Kim will have many more opportunities to hang out.

We are in FULL support of this new friendship, bizarre as it may be! All hail K-Tay!



Actor and TV presenter James Corden said presenting the BRIT Awards was “horrid” as he was faced with a roomful of people who ignored him.

James has hosted the music ceremony for the past five year but stepped down after the last awards show in February.

Speaking of his role as presenter he said, “It was horrid. It was so much fun the week leading up to it and you get to see the bands, and then it is live and you are in a room full of people that don’t listen to anything you say.

“People who beg for a ticket and then pretend they are too cool to be there. They are chatting, drinking and eating.”

James, 35, admits he will miss the show but thinks the BRITS would benefit from having a younger host.

He added, “I enjoyed doing it and I’m sure when it comes around in February I will miss being a part of it. But it’s time to hand it to someone younger and cooler.”

Radio 1 DJ Nick Grimshaw and TV presenter Emma Willis are said to be in the running for the presenter slot.



Uh oh, does Fearne realise what she has let herself in for? If there is a list of people we wouldn’t mess with, we reckon Lily Allen would be number one, closely followed by the Gallagher brothers and Kelly Osbourne.

Speaking on the Breakfast Show, BBC 1 with Nick Grimshaw, Fearne explained how Lily snubbed her the previous evening at the Brit Awards: “Lily Allen blanked me last night. Five times. She blanked me five times in a row.”

Fearne also told Nick how she had also snubbed her boyfriend, Jesse Wood: “And she blanked Jesse. You know my boyfriend is the nicest guy in the world…blanked.”

Of course, Lily was never going to take this lying down and took to her Twitter account to voice her disagreement with Fearne’s allegation and to question why she didn’t just approach her: “@Fearnecotton I did not blank you. That is simply not true. I didn’t see you or your husband…@Fearnecotton any, why couldn’t you just come over a say hi yourself?”





At Wednesday night’s BRIT Awards, supermodel Kate Moss emerged on stage wearing David Bowie’s iconic ‘Woodland Creatures’ playsuit, originally worn by him at a concert in 1972.

The playsuit was designed by Kansai Yamamato.

This was the first BRIT award won by Bowie for eighteen years, but he wasn’t there to accept it – Miss Moss did that for him.

Keeping us all in check, as if we had gotten ahead of ourselves, Noel Gallagher, who announced the award, said: “You maniacs didn’t think David Bowie was actually going to be here?”

We reckon Kate rocked that outfit and who knew it would look so good with black tights? We kind of want it…
