GaGa to perform with Pet Shop Boys at BRITs

By | Published on Monday 16 February 2009

According to reports, The Pet Shop Boys are to perform with US popstrel Lady GaGa when they appear at the Brits this week. The singer is to join the duo for a performance of ‘What Have I Done To Deserve This?’, the pair’s 1987 track originally featuring the late Dusty Springfield. The Pet Shop Boys are, as previously reported, set to pick up the Outstanding Contribution To Music gong at Wednesday’s ceremony.

Meanwhile, Aussie singer Gabriella Cilmi has been talking about both Lady GaGa and The Brits. According to The Daily Star she isn’t too keen on her fellow singer’s image, because they quote her as saying “I like to be myself and not a character. I saw this picture of Lady GaGa touching her crotch and I wasn’t keen on that. She needs to put some clothes on. Eventually you’re just going to catch something and have to go to hospital if you keep walking around in your bra and knickers”.

And before you start thinking she’s just a woman hater, she has good things to say about Girls Aloud, and hopes they’ll win the British Band gong at the upcoming Brit ceremony. Cilmi, nominated in the Best International Female Category, told the tabloid: “I want to see Girls Aloud win British Band. I think they deserve recognition and I know the people behind the music. They’re real musicians who are talented. I would also like to see James Morrison win British Male as he’s got a beautiful voice”.
