Rihanna, Bruno Mars And Adele Receive BRIT Awards
Rihanna, Bruno Mars and Adele were among the biggest winners at the Brit Awards, which took place on Tuesday, February 22 at London's O2 Arena.
Riri took home the Award for International Female Solo Artist, a category that included competition from Beyoncé and Lady Gaga. She thanked her fans:
"When I feel misunderstood my fans always remind me that it's okay to be myself."
Bruno Mars nabbed the masculine complement to Rihanna's award, the International Male Solo Artist Award.
Finally, Adele took home two awards: Female Solo Artist and Album of the Year. She said the win was the perfect match to her recent Grammy sweep:
"Nothing makes me prouder than coming home with six Grammys and then coming to the BRITs and winning album of the year."
