Dispatches from the Brit Awards: Twitter reveals little animosity between Justin Bieber and Brit winners Arcade Fire
The Grammys have come and gone, but the animosity Justin Bieber fans have unleashed at poor Esperanza Spalding—the musician who won Best New Artist over the Biebs—has yet to ebb. The 16-year old sensation, however, is taking the high road by celebrating fellow nominees and their wins, including Arcade Fire. Tweeting live from The Brit awards yesterday, he used the hash tag #Canadianswag to congratulate the Montreal band for their recent wins.
Arcade Fire won the award for best international group, beating out the Black Eyed Peas, Kings of Leon, The Script and Vampire Weekend. Win Butler and el. also nabbed the Brits for best international album for The Suburbs, leaping over fellow nominees Cee Lo Green’s Lady Killer, Eminem’s Recovery, Katy Perry’s Teenage Dream and Kings of Leon’s Come Around Sundown.
