Congratulations to Jessie J on her Brit award win. The only thing I don’t like about the lady is that she claimed to have not prepared a speech, even though she always knew she was going to win the award. I’m quite a fan of humility, but it would be really old-school and entertaining to hear a performer deliver a lengthy speech with some sort of narrative to it. It’s not as if Jessie isn’t capable of arrogance, just check out her Twitter feed. And with a voice like hers,  she’s allowed to be as arrogant as she likes. Her hair isn’t typical lesbian hair, but she’s definitely bisexual, and I can  see the Mystic Meg look catching on among fans, regardless of their sexuality.

Janelle Monae

Janelle Monae

If you’re watching the Brit Awards tonight and find yourself thinking “where the fuck is Janelle Monae?” then you’re not alone. The punchy little soulstress, who’s been taken under the wing of such funk greats as Stevie Wonder, Nile Rodgers and, uh..Outkast’s Big Boi, is as pretty as she is talented. Unfortunately none of her singles get much radio play on mainstream stations in the UK and so it seems Norah Jones and Ladyhawke are enough to oust her from the Best Internation Female shortlist. Yeah, I know that no-one but Gaga’s got a chance in hell of winning the award, but it would be nice to see Janelle get some recognition.

I was lucky enough to see her surprise set at Bestival 2010. Unfortunately, the tent was full of people wondering who the fuck she was, and one of my friends was tripping on mushrooms so hard that all she could say was “I love this so much. I’m jizzing over it, but it’s boring” and stormed out of the tent in the middle of Tightrope.

The best things about her hair are:

1. It’s big and small at the same time

2. It works beautifully with her delicate-featured face

3. It pays no attention to gravity.

Lindsay Lohan + Sam Ronson

Lindsay Lohan and Sam Ronson, 2008.

Lindsay Lohan and Sam Ronson, 2008.

Lindsay Lohan’s been back in court this week. The actress, who’s just finished up a session in rehab following a jail stint, has pleaded not guilty to the alleged crime of stealing a necklace. But as she’s still on probabtion for 2007’s DUI, she could be sent daaaan for anything up to three years. Her lawyer’s offered a plea bargain, which means she’ll say she’s guilty in order to avoid a harsh sentence. Which is the weirdest rule ever. Regardless of what happens, I really miss her acting and her and Samantha Ronson being together. How many young lesbian couples were there in the spotlight before these two started hooking up? It’s such a shame that they were hounded by paps and painted as a miserable, argumentative couple. I mean, look how glossy and beautiful their hair was.
