Lana Del Rey beat an impressive list of nominees in the International Female Solo Artist category at the 2013 Brit Awards. And I care about this because I love Lana Del Rey and am glad that somewhere in the world someone is recognizing her talent and not just hating on her nails and lips because obviously if a woman has fake nails and fake lips (allegedly), she’s untalented trash.
Man, the Brits do a lot of things better than Americans. Over here you would never see Cat Power on the same list as Rihanna and Taylor Swift for anything.
Best International Female was Lana Del Rey. “I lived here and I love it here and I wrote my record here and I’m honoured,” said the US singer songwriter on receiving her award. She also thanked her management for helping to turn her life into a “work of art.”
Don’t get on me for spelling “honored” with a U, I’m quoting a British publication. They do things differently there. For example, their awards aren’t gold and shiny like ours, they’re…this:
Hey, that’s fun. They also appear to change each year depending on the theme of the show. This year I guess it’s polkadots. Neat.
Also, Lana, I love you, but I don’t love what you’re wearing or what your hair is doing. But I still think you are a beautiful and talented woman.
Ms. Del Rey arrived with her boyfriend-or-fiance?, Scottish alternative Folk musician, Barrie-James O’Neill.
