Hopes he isn’t nom­i­nated for a BRIT Award

Kuwait Times - - LIFESTYLE -

The 41-year-old singer has signed up to host the an­nual UK mu­sic awards cer­e­mony in 2017 but would pre­fer not to be nom­i­nated be­cause it would be too awk­ward if he lost. Speak­ing to Kate Gar­raway, for Global’s Make Some Noise, he said: “I don’t even think I’ll be nom­i­nated to be hon­est with you. Can I be com­pletely frank about some­thing? I’m not a big fan of host­ing in a year when I’m up for stuff. I just think it kind of looks weird. When I hosted the JUNO Awards in Canada, I tried to make sure it was in a year when the record couldn’t be nom­i­nated, be­cause it can look kind of strange. “There was one year when Drake was the host, he was nom­i­nated for six and he lost all six so it was kind of just like those ‘urgh’ mo­ments ev­ery time he’s up on stage go­ing ‘and the win­ner is...not me again!’, it’s such a sub­jec­tive thing win­ning awards, that’s not what it’s about. It’s about get­ting to hang out and get drunk with celebri­ties.” Michael has been nom­i­nated for three BRITs dur­ing his ca­reer but has never won. The Cana­dian star is tak­ing over host­ing du­ties from pre­sent­ing duo Ant and Dec, who pre­vi­ously re­vealed that 2016’s cer­e­mony would be their last and he has noth­ing but praise for his pre­de­ces­sors. He said: “I ac­tu­ally know them very well, and I love them so much. Not just how great they are be­cause ob­vi­ously you guys know, you’ve have watched them for years on tele­vi­sion now and you know how tal­ented they are but what’s beau­ti­ful is get­ting an op­por­tu­nity to hang out with them and their fam­i­lies and to know that they’re ev­ery­thing you’d hoped they would be. I mean they’re just real guys, they’re beau­ti­ful peo­ple with beau­ti­ful fam­i­lies and I think the truth is, the rea­son I’m do­ing it isn’t be­cause I got cho­sen over any­one else, I think that they had other com­mit­ments be­cause I’m sure they would have had them back for the third time.”Michael was in­ter­viewed by Smooth’s Kate Gar­raway for Global’s Make Some Noise.
