Katy Gets Political? 

The Roar singer appears to throw shade at Donald Trump 

With Hollywood’s finest making their opinions on America’s political landscape clear all throughout 2017’s awards season, Katy Perry made sure to get in on the action during her time onstage at the Brit Awards.  

Newly blonde starlet Katy was in London to perform her new single, Chained to the Rhythm, taking to the stage surrounded by dancers dressed as houses. Midway through her set, giant skeleton puppets appeared on stage, and viewers were quick to point out similarities between the puppets and two prominent political figures – United States President Donald Trump and British Prime Minister Theresa May. Even the outfits on the skeletons were eerily similar to those worn by the real life Trump and May during their recent meeting in the US, where the pair’s handholding went instantly viral.  

Honouring Legends 

David Bowie and George Michael were remembered at the awards show 

As the 2017 Brit’s took place, stars of the music industry made sure to pay tribute to two legends who recently passed away – George Michael and David Bowie. 

Though he died in January last year aged 69 following a battle with cancer, rock icon David Bowie was one of the night’s biggest winners, being posthumously honoured with the Mastercard British Album of the Year Award and the British Male Solo Artist statuettes. His son Duncan Jones accepted the Album of the Year award on behalf of his father, thanking Bowie’s dedicated fans in the process.  

In addition, George Michael, who passed away on Christmas Day last year aged 53, was remembered by his old Wahm! bandmate Andrew Ridgeley with an emotional on-stage speech. Coldplay’s Chris Martin then used old footage of George singing to appear to 'duet' with the late star on his song A Different Corner
