Apologies I think this news is a day or so old so may have been discussed elsewhere.
I quite like most of Pink's stuff, I really like some of it, but I have to say...WTF??
Up until now the Outstanding Contribution award hasn't ventured any further than Ireland.
So they decide to open it up globally for the first time and...Pink?!!
Even if we're sticking just to living artists, whether we're going by artistic merit, sales, influence, whatever... I reckon most of us could come up with a pretty long list of international artists before Pink gets on the radar screen.
What saddens me is that it's such an obvious piece of pandering (presumably in return for her performing and/or record company/management calling in favours etc) that it renders the whole thing completely devoid of any credibility.
