Pet Shop Boys Don't Approve Of The Brits

The Pet Shop Boys have said that they don't really approve of the Brit Awards, unless it's them, receiving an Outstanding Contribution Award. Chris Lowe told Q Magazine: “We don't really approve of the awards. But this one is a little different. It acknowledges the importance of pop in the world. You know, it's not all rock”.

Band mate Neil Tennant expressed his surprise at the accolade: “I didn't think we'd get it. EMI phoned and said, 'If they give you this award, (a) will you accept it? And (b) will you turn up?' I was impressed that that was how they still thought of us! When we got the award for 'West End Girls' in 1987 for best single, Chris didn't turn up”.
