BRIT awards go for gender-neutral award categories; Brian May does not agree

 - Celebrities - Nov 27 SHARE ON:

After claims from artists like Sam Smith that award shows like the BRIT awards were not inclusive, the BRIT awards themselves actually scrapped the ‘male’ and ‘female’ categories this year and went on to give gender neutral titles such as Artist of the year and international Artist of the year.

The award show organisation claims that it is their goal to ‘celebrate the achievements of artists irrespective of their gender.’

bHe went on to highlight that “a lot of things work quite well and can be left alone” and explained that he gets “sick of people trying to change things without thinking of the long-term consequences.”

Madonna slammed Instagram for taking down her most recent post and here's why

These were the words of 63-year-old pop star Madonna in the midst of her dispute with Instagram after the social media platform took down one of her posts which pictured her on a bed, with a nipple exposed. The pop star claimed issue with the fact that she does not believe that she should have been censored and went on to ask why a man’s nipple could not be considered in the same why, shooting down Instagram’s current guideline bans.

Back in 2012, thousands took part in the #freethenipple campaign, which attempted to create a movement that challenged the old-fashioned convention that men can appear topless in public without it being considered indecent while women could not.

A series of hashtags in Adkins’ post highlight that the actor is location-scouting for his latest film, Accident Man 2, the sequel to a film about an assassin who specialises in disguising his assassinations as accidents. He later took to his stories to share some footage of himself on set being prepared for a scene by make-up artists, so Accident Man 2 may come sooner than we think.
