KATY PERRY SLAYS AT THE BRITS, AS BOWIE WINS BIG

Reading Time: 2 minutes

[U.K]–The 2017 annual Brit Awards, organised to celebrate the best in British music, held on February 22.

It was filled with a wide array of spectacles. One of the biggest highlights was Katy Perry’s political rendition of her new single, “Chained to the Rhythm.” The performance featured skeletal puppet figures of US President, Donald Trump and British Prime Minister, Theresa May, both having a clandestine discussion which only ended in an explosion, an apparent metaphor for the global leadership’s dangerous political moves. The performance has drawn heavy praise from critics, who commended her new-found political consciousness.

Deceased rock star, David Bowie, was the biggest winner of the night, grabbing two awards, including MasterCard British Album of the Year. This comes after Bowie had a big night at the Grammy Awards on February 12, winning awards in the rock category. Here is a list of winners:
