Non Cosmetic Babblings About the Brit Awards 2008

After a bit of a wait the US was treated to the Brit Awards a few weeks ago on BBC America. The original showing was about over a month ago British side I believe and I finally got to sit down and see it for myself rather then go through youTube clips, blogs, etc....

I always appreciate Brit Award shows far more then I do the US ones. I found the Brits really hang loose where as we are so commercial and Hollywood US side the Brits just sorta sit back, kick back the liquor, get loud and enjoy themselves. Not likely in the US Award ceremonies. The UK always remind me of a buncha drunk folk in a pub lushing it up. I don't normally even like Award shows but if it's British I'm all over it like white on rice!

The awards were hosted by none other then the Prince of Darkness and his family. I freaking love watching the Osbournes in action. It's like a trainwreck, you just can't take your eyes off, particularly Sharon. I love Ozzy and I love Black Sabbath and watching Ozzy age before my very eyes has always taken a little bit of getting used too!

Ozzy was fine, Jack was fine, Kelly was fine, but I couldn't figure out if Sharon was high, drunk, or just being a show off in general. I go with being a show off. She's one for flashing herself around and acting all hot in the pan. She was really, really irritating. I normally find her ok to deal with but last night I felt like slapping her upside the head.

I must say that the amount of weight that Jack and Kelly have taken off is amazing and they really look very healthy and beautiful. Not that they weren't before but they just look very cleaned up and mature. A big improvement over the old Kelly and Jack for sure.

The strangest part of the entire night was when Sir Ian McKellen got up to present and proceeded to say, "If you're wondering (and I was wondering) what I'm doing at the Brits, I'm here to meet MIKA!"

At this point I gulped my tea the wrong way and spurted it back out at the TV. Wow. Way to out a guy Ian! I love me some Ian but this might be a bit too much considering how private Mika is about his sexuality and which side he's pitching for. I imagine at this point the poor guy crawled under his table and prayed for death!

The Muse's favorite Doctor made his special appearance at the awards and general drool, panting, and such occurred as he walked on stage to present. David has a knack for swinging around the court in a manly manner or last night in this particular case he displayed his metrosexual sense of flair and style with a close fitting jacket and a ultra cute t-shirt with a star emblem. We love you David, you're a god. He presented the award to Kylie whom walked right into David's arms as I stared daggers at the screen. I felt a bit of chemistry there...hmm the girlfriend is going to be jealous David you cheeky little monkey! I almost threw the TV out the window at this point since I was gagging so hard watching Kylie's little botox arse hug David so hard but I realized I had a good hour left of the show so best keep the telly sitting where it was!

Amy Winehouse was surprisely sober during all this fanfare or at least she looked slightly sober. Her voice, as always, was beautiful. Her hair was in some decent sort of order, decent for Amy anyway. I suspect she took a few downers in the back prior to going on stage because damn she was very mellow. I almost didn't recognize the "unwired" Amy!

Rihanna was looking beautiful as always! I can totally understand why this chick's legs are insured for a million bucks!

Oh Lord I'm embarrassed for Sharon!

I think the major highlight of the night was the brief 20 seconds that Jonathan Rhys Meyers hopped on stage to present. He was looking smoking HOT! We aren't exposed to enough JR here in the states. Please can it be Jonathan Rhys Meyers time all the time? Thanks the Muse appreciates it!

We know why you like his album Jonathan!

I was also loving the
Arctic Monkeys! They looked sweet as pie in my humblest! That could be a bias opinion as I love them so much!

All in all an interesting night of beautiful brits!

Did you see it?

It should be available on youTube by now!

Do share if you watched!

I was watching something about the Osbournes a couple of weeks ago - True Hollywood Story, maybe? And was surprised to see how Jack and Kelly looked before, vs. now. I agree, the change is amazing and I'm so glad they both cleaned up!!

The irony of life. I live in UK and couldn't be bothered to watch it. Frankly i'd rather be shot in the foot than watch an awards show.

The only thing that ever interests me about these shows are the dresses the celebs wear so i just love looking at red carpet pictures and dreaming of how hot i'd look in one of

Love me some JRM...he's so hot with his irish accent and those fierce eyes of his.

As for the Osbournes, Sharon and her man are always crazy...absolutely loved what Kelly wore, she really owned the look in my opinion.

I didn't watch the show, but what Sir Ian said sounded to me like he was Mika's (music) fan ;) Or perhaps I'm just naive :P

hiya ChiliLady!

I was just viewing your blog and it's awesome! I concur Amy was good! She's normally a bit strange on stage but she was very good and her voice was amazing as always!

I'm linking you here as I'm enjoying your amazing sense of style ;)

hi cookie!

Jack and Kelly have sincerely done a 180! Not only have they lost a ton of weight but they also have grown up and matured a great deal. I'm somewhat shocked at how well they are doing as they had a rocky childhood (it's hard being the offspring of the Prince of Darkness).

I'm a big fan of Kelly's and I think she looks amazing!

Thanks for the comment lovie!

hi Allysia-May!

Really? LOL I was excited to see it and you skipped it ;) Ironic!

Oh me too. I hate award shows with a passion but when it comes to beautiful british all together in a big room I'm in!

Oh my gawd honey JRM is the yummie! He's a god isn't he? I think I loves him more than Cillian Murphy!

Lord. Phew!

I think Kelly always owns everything she wears. She has an excellent, fun sense of style. Even when she was younger she had her own little theme going on which I was totally impressed with. She looks quite beautiful lately. Her hair is amazing, her body is amazing..really cleaned up. I'm quite proud of both of them for doing so well. It's been a bit of a long road for each of them but I really believe moving out has helped them a heap!

All in all quite a nice showing of Beautiful Brits :)

well, my husband was on the show, so I had to watch it. Kylie needs to keep her grubby hands off him. ;)

It was a good show- the Brits always amuse me. After living in the US for eight years now, I kind of miss the wackiness of the Brit Awards. It just wouldn't happen over here, would it. Sharon was embarrassing, especially with Vic Reeves, though he was off his face. Mika was fab, as always!

I've never heard of an Osbourne described as "healthy and beautiful" let alone "cleaned up and mature", with the exception, perhaps, of Amy (which is probably why she's not allowed to appear in public. Makes the others look bad.).

Is it just me, or have the nip/tucks gone a little too far for Sharon? She looks like Joceylene Wildenstein in the above picture.

Kelly always looks like she should have bolts in her neck, or something.

PS: In a family with a longstanding history of drug-use (where even the pooches are popping pills to get through a day with Sharon) weight loss isn't necessarily a sign of good health. Methinks Kelly has stumbled onto Wino's secret stash (which also explains why Wino was dead sober throughout her performance).

Also, considering David Tennant's girlfriend is Sophia Miles and Kylie's back with Olivier Martinez's hot ass, I doubt we'll catch these two doing the locomotion backstage; they'd both be downgrading!

hey Mandy!

Sorry 'bout my delayed reply!

Hell honey Aimee is living off the fruit of the land dont get me started on that biatch!

Can't stand her!

She doesn't look too too bad. Could be worst a la Joan Rivers!

You're harsh on Kelly as I think she looks pretty ok!

LOL wino and kelly indulge in each other's stash alot I fear ;)
