"Theresa May, where's the money for Grenfell?" - Stormzy rap at Brit awards

Brit nominees enjoy chart boost ahead of awards ceremony

British Prime Minister Theresa May is determined to find answers to last year's Grenfell tower block fire disaster, her spokesman said on Thursday after rapper Stormzy criticised the government response at the Brit music awards.

Upon presenting the award for worldwide female solo artist with Adwoa Aboah, Goulding took a shot at the recent controversy surrounding Recording Academy CEO Neil Portnow's comments that women in the music business need to "step up".

The campaigns came to prominence after a sea of sexual assault allegations were levied at Hollywood stars late a year ago, prompting the wider world to share their own stories with "MeToo" and "TimesUp" hashtags on social media.

Opting for casual attire, Thornton Heath native Stormzy wore a slouchy hooded jumper and fitted black jeans.

Ratings for the BRIT Awards on ITV last night (February 21) were down by 900,000 viewers on past year. Sheeran's album "Divide" was nominated for the Mastercard British Album of the year, and he was also up for Best Video, which was decided by a public text-in vote.

"I had to perform Blinded by Your Grace and Big For Your Boots and I needed to put something in the middle because I didn't want to just come here as an artist like 'yeah it's the Stormzy show, '" the 24-year-old shared.

Theresa May has responded after being dissed by Stormzy live on stage during his BRITs performance last night (Wednesday 22 February). "/ What you thought we just forgot about Grenfell?" and suggesting that the Daily Mail "suck my dick". "We should burn your house down and see if you can manage this".
