MTV American…oops, sorry, European music awards

2004 at the Coliseum; Rome; Italy. Presented by Xzibit.
I’ve just finished watching the Europe MTV music awards and what a big pile of shit that was!! It was absolutely terrible. They get worse and worse each year, but this one really was the bottom of the barrel.
For a start where were the British people? You could count about five maybe. Robbie, Girls aloud, Westlife, Rachel Stevens all should have been there along with some British rock and some British dance acts. I’m completely sick of R&B being the only recognised music at award ceremonies lately. If you weren’t Usher or Outkast, you really had no hope of winning anything. Muse were the only British people to win anything, and that’s because it was the award for best British act. I couldn’t believe it; I wondered whether there was some political boycott going on that I didn’t know about; 99% of the people presenting, performing and winning, were American.
Maybe the Italian’s just weren’t up to the job. The live pre-awards show had so many technical mistakes it was far past funny and just plain unprofessional. Sarah-Michelle Geller kept introducing nominees for the best song which were meant to be sung in opera style, but all we saw were all their names being repeated each time. And where were the interesting and unexpected collaborations? The Kylie and Justin Timberlakes? The rock and pop mixtures (can’t remember other specific names right now). There wasn’t a single one.
The atmosphere didn’t seem great there either – the stars couldn’t seem to get much reaction from the crowd and there was a general sense of boredom I thought. Even Eminem’s opening performance lacked his usual energy. The best bit was Gwen Stephanie’s solo show in her cute Alice in Wonderland dress and amazing shoes. But altogether it was very disappointing. MTV better pull their act together because there was really no need for this awards show as well as the American one – you couldn’t tell the difference at all. Bring it back to London next year and we’ll show them what it’s all meant to be about. Unless of course, these days it’s all about American audience numbers and advertising profits.

Review of the mitre restaurant in Oxford
A quick review of The Mitre restaurant in Oxford
April 19, 2017
My trip to Oxford was a year ago now, but I found this review in my notebook, so I thought I’d type it up as it could be useful to someone visiting Oxford. Just to fill you in, as part of my Christmas and birthday presents, I had a little two-night stay in a lovely hotel near the city, all by myself. It was heaven! Anyway, you can never go wrong with a Beefeater restaurant, so I tried the one on Oxford High Street called The Mitre….
Tarte eyeshadow palette review
A review of the Tarte Tarteist Amazonian Clay eyeshadow palette
November 14, 2017
I am constantly on the hunt for a matte eyeshadow palette, and if I see one, I will probably buy it! I honestly don’t know why they aren’t more popular, because I just cannot get on with an ordinary eye shadow! I had a little splurge on make-up a couple of years ago and talked about my issues with the No7 eyeshadows and the Maybelline eyeshadows that I bought. They simply do not look good on me and the pigmentation is rubbish. I decided it was about time I stopped faffing about with mid-range High Street make-up and actually spend some money….
