Depeche Mode were among the winners at last night's MTV Europe Music Awards.
The veteran synth-rock trio took home the award for the Best Group category at the Justin Timberlake-hosted event in Copenhagen. Recently in the news for totally non-musical reasons sort Madonna was nominated in three categories - Best Pop Act, Best Female and Best Album - yet won nothing.
Bo Selecta comic Avid Merrion mocked the singer, who didn't attend the ceremony anyway, by dressing as her and saying: “I’m getting too old for this shit. I’ve been getting a lot of hoo-ha from the press recently just because I bought a baby. But I’m Madonna. If I want to buy a baby, I buy a flipping baby.”
A flipping baby? Can little kids do that without gymnastic training? Only Africans? Cool.
Alongside Depeche Mode, the only other British winners were Muse, who triumphed in the Best Alternative Act category, and The Kooks won the award for Best UK and Ireland Act.
