Brits Again - 15th February

More rubbish on the Brits from Vicky and her team now. In 'Not a galaxy of stars this year', a piece subtitled "Newton's Theory" we get:

"THEY promised us JOHNNY DEPP and RINGO STARR, but all we got was SEAN "HAS" BEAN."

No, you claimed Johnny Depp and Ringo Starr would be there - no-one from the Brits said anything about it. Sean "Has" Bean? The same one who in the past few years has appeared in such little-known films as the Lord of the Rings trilogy, Troy, The Island, Flightplan and Silent Hill, all of which grossed over $100m each at the worldwide box office?

"But instead we got the likes of dress designer ROLAND MOURET and model ERIN O'CONNOR (who is only famous because she once romped with JAMIE THEAKSTON)."

Yes, Vicky - let's ignore that fact that she's an internationally famous multi-millionaire supermodel who has been in demand for a decade, and has worked for fellow 'unknowns' like John Galliano, Christian Dior, Donna Karan, Chanel, Prada, Versace, Giorgio Armani, Jean-Paul Gaultier and Dolce & Gabbana, and been photographed by Patrick Demarchelier, Steven Meisel, Marion Testino and Juergen Teller. She has also appeared on the cover of some little magazine called 'Vogue' on several occasions - perhaps you've heard of it?

Karl Lagerfeld said of her "She is one of the greatest models working today. Her face is like a Roman vase - not a standard beauty, but a modern anti-beauty." But let's cast all that aside and pretend all she's ever done is "romp" with an ex children's TV presenter. (And for "once romped" read "had a two year relationship".) That surely is one of the most ill-informed comments Vicky has ever made.

Meanwhile, in another piece

"Actor SEAN BEAN announced the teenage band, from his home town of Sheffield, had landed the album gong for Whatever People Say I Am, That’s What I’m Not."

None of the Arctic Monkeys are teenagers. And do you think Vicky might have given herself a clue with that sentence as to why Sean "Has" Bean was asked to present the award? Hmm...

And finally, it's a shame MY team couldn't manage to get the right Mr Carr presenting the award sponsored by their own column. According to this, Best British Single was presented by the anti-smoking guru who died 3 months ago, as opposed to the very much alive comedian.

I might as well add a mention of a fantastic blooper The Sun made earlier today regarding a caption. Here's the capture of the page in question:

Now can you spot the hilarious mistake on there?

I was lucky enough to save the page pre-fixy-fixy and have archived and upped it here for those interested.

Loving your site btw! *thumbs up*

Victoria's Brits whinge has been picked up by Guardian's Media Monkey today too:

Brit mixed up
Monkey's U-turn of the week goes to the Sun's Bizarre editor Victoria Newton and her column, Newton's Theory. Do you see what they have done there? Anyway, here is Newton writing about the Brit awards on Thursday: "I'm more than disappointed with the ropey guest presenters Brits bosses pulled in this year. They must do better next year." And on Friday: "This year's Brits ceremony deserves to go down in history as one of the best."
