British Asian R’n’B sensation, Jay Sean has expressed his anger after being snubbed by the Brit Awards this year.
The nominations, which were announced in London late last week failed to shortlist Jay for his incredible US success, plus his mainstream chart success in the UK.
Talking to the��Daily Record��newspaper, he said, “The list of nominations is to be expected. I’ve got to say I’m not a not a fan of award shows.
“I think they are fake and there’s a lot of politics behind it. It doesn’t represent anything about who’s doing what. Half the people on the list have hardly sold any records. These are cool names that you drop at cocktail parties. They don’t represent the scene very well. What is the purpose of award shows?
“I remember when Craig David was the king and you couldn’t get bigger than him. Yet he was not nominated for any Brits – so it goes to show the whole thing for me just doesn’t represent anything.”
The ‘Brit Awards’ take place on Tuesday 15th February and will be aired on ITV1.
