Paul Weller and Adele @ the Brits
Success in the Brits - 18th Feb 2009That message was posted in the news section of Paul Weller's official website. Other 2009 Brit Award winners were Duffy, Kings of Leon, Katy Perry, Iron Maiden (for best live act), Elbow, Florence and the Machine, Kanye West, and Girls Aloud. Pet Shop Boys were also honored at the event.
As you probably know by now, PW was successful in tonight's Brit Awards winning Best Male Solo Artist. OK so he wasn't there to collect it in person but we did get a video with Adele passing the award over.
What can you say? Well deserved for a top year.
Well done feller.
