She may have played every shoddy gay club in Christendom but the facilities at Brighton Pride on Saturday were just not up to the giddy high standards Alexandra Burke’s technical team (really?) demand of an artiste of this calibre. Sorry, Brighton Priders, no can do. Not even for ready money. Not when her musical excellence is at stake. No, sorry.
Having turned down the original stage where she was booked, ‘it was looked at her playing in the dance tent which is where Fatboy Slim played and where Freemasons played,’ said someone very high up at Brighton Pride. ‘But that didn’t meet her new requirements either. So reluctantly, we were informed that she wasn’t going to play.’
When asked for reactions, revelers, who were pretty much off their faces to be fair, commented: ‘Thank fuck for that. The last thing we need in this state is to see those massive thighs thundering across the stage…’
The most irritating woman in pop (OK, second most irritating) pulls out of Brighton Pride because the facilities weren't up to her very high standards,
