英國流行歌手阿黛爾(Adele)贏得第二屆BBC音樂獎多項獎項,其中包括「最佳英國藝人」和「最佳現場演出獎」。
阿黛爾本人並未出席周四(12月10號)舉行的頒獎禮,但向BBC發來視頻信息表示:「我剛發行了新專輯就得獎,非常受鼓舞。」
阿黛爾所指的新專輯為其復出後的專輯《25》。阿黛爾自從2013年以一曲邦德系列電影的主題曲「Skyfall」獲得奧斯卡獎之後,就淡出了公眾視線。
截至目前,《25》是大西洋兩岸年度銷售的大贏家。
今年11月20日《25》發行,發行的頭一個星期在英國售出了80多萬張,打破了英國單周銷售的最高紀錄。
其在美國銷售的第一周就售出338萬張,超過了美國當紅歌星泰勒·斯威夫特(Taylor Swift)180萬張的紀錄。
斯威夫特獲得2015年BBC音樂獎的「最佳國際藝人獎」。她同樣未出席頒獎禮,而是在澳大利亞通過視頻連線領獎。

Camille Paglia has written a scathing critique of Taylor Swift, referring to the singer as an “obnoxious Nazi Barbie” whose “twinkly persona is such a scary flashback to the fascist blondes who ruled the social scene during my youth”.

Adele Goes Viral, No Selfies or Tweets Needed

A 27-year-old mother who pretty much ignores social media is selling more albums than anyone in the sagging music business thought was still possible.


【Adele不媚俗行銷,唱片照樣大賣】
社群行銷,對愛黛兒而言,恐怕沒這回事。音樂產業裡,大概沒有人能像愛黛兒(Adele)一樣了。她幾乎不碰自己的社群媒體帳號,不靠自拍或推特,唱片銷售量卻是到達了許多人認為不可能成真的數字。
愛黛兒似乎點燃了數百萬消費者的心;對消費者來說,購買專輯不但是種展現熱愛的方式,也為了支持他們喜愛的藝術家。

No Joke: British Comedian Founds a Women’s Party


By SAPHORA SMITH

Weary of delays on the issue of equality, a comedian and two journalists have begun the daunting process of forging a new political party. It now has 65 branches.

‘I went through some very dark times. People say: ‘When did you decide you were gay?’ and you think, ‘When did you decide you were heterosexual?' It’s not a decision. It’s something you gradually begin to realise about yourself and it’s who I am.’



The Women's Equality Party is a political party in the United Kingdom that was formed following a public meeting in London's Royal Festival Hall on 28 March 2015, where it was concluded that there was a need for a political party in the United Kingdom to campaign for gender equality to the benefit of all. The meeting was organised via Facebook[1] under the title "The Women's Equality Party needs you. But probably not as much as you need the Women's Equality Party" following a proposal by Catherine Mayer. The party's full policy was launched by party leader, Sophie Walker, at Conway Hall, 20 October 2015.



History[edit]


Co-founders of the Women's Equality Party

On 2 March 2015, author and journalist Catherine Mayer attended a "Women in Politics" event at the Women of the World Festival(Purcell RoomSouthbank Centre). The panel was chaired by Jude Kelly (Artistic Director, Southbank Centre), and the panel consisted of Katie Ghose (CEO, Electoral Reform Society), Margot James (Conservative), Stella Creasy (Labour) and Jo Swinson (Lib Dem).[2] Having watched the panelists agreeing collegially with each other on almost every point Mayer stood up and said, "What about if I found a Women's Equality Party, tell you what, I'm going to go to the bar afterwards, anyone interested in discussing this come and see me."[3]

On 8 March 2015, at the same festival, comedian Sandi Toksvig presented an event entitled "Sandi Toksvig's Mirth Control: Stand Up and Be Counted", (Royal Festival Hall, Southbank Centre).[4] Interviewed by Jenni Murray on the BBC Radio 4's Woman's Hour, Toksvig said, "I had a fantasy cabinet of women, and I didn't care which party they came from, we had Doreen Lawrence as our Home Secretary. Can you imagine anything more wonderful? We had paralympian Tanni Grey-Thompson as our Sports Minister, and I asked them to put forward practical suggestions. The world is in a parlous state, 9.1 million women failed to vote in the last election, we need to attract them, we also need to attract the more than 7 million men who didn't vote. Why are people not engaged in politics, because I don't think that the people standing represent the diversity of this country."[5] Mayer phoned Toksvig and the two agreed to become co-founders of the party.[6]
