Black Girls Rock It Across The Pond: Snaps From The 2012 Brit Awards

February 22, 2012  |  

Sometimes we forget that there is Black pop artistry happening in places outside of the continent and outside of the United States. Case in point: Britain! The United Kingdom has a huge African and Caribbean population. Besides crossover artists like Estelle and Corinne Bailey Rae, the island has also produced a ton of Black artists who are pretty popular in Europe. You can bet they were representing at the Brit Awards. Although we didn’t get them all, we got a few snapshots of the stars and celebs that make up the Black glitterati there.

    Well, you have to give it to the British, they are stylish.  But Alexandra Burke looks like she took her fashion tips from old Sylvia Robinson photos.
