The Brit Awards 2022

The Brit Awards is one of the biggest annual music award shows for the British music industry. It took place last week on the 8th of February in the O2 Arena and was hosted by comedian Mo Gilligan. This year was the first year where there were no longer separate “male artist of the year” and “female artist of the year” categories but instead just a “best artist” category, to be more inclusive of all gender identities.

British singer Adele won three of the main awards this year (artist of the year, album of year for her album 30, song of the year for Easy On Me), and afterwards gave a speech, where she said: “I understand why the name of this award has changed but I really love being a woman and being a female artist. I'm really proud of us.” This caused some controversy on social media, as some accused her of being a “terf“ which stands for “trans-exclusionary radical feminist”.
