Take That Europe!

14 years ago this November, a new way to give out small ornaments to pop stars for singing someone else’s song was born. For in 1994, MTV took one more step in its Risk like takeover of the world’s youth by organising the inaugural MTV Europe Music Awards in Berlin, Germany. And who was there performing at such a momentous moment in European music video history? Five sweaty English lads that’s who, as Take That stormed the stage, picking up the award for ‘Best Group’ along the way.

But why am I telling you all this? It’s not just because I love Take That. Nor indeed my wonderful feelings for the year 1994 (Roberto Baggio!). No, I tell you this for good reason, for the boys have just announced they will be back on stage at Europe’s premiere award extravaganza next month in Liverpool.

“With such fond memories of the event in Berlin, it is a great honour to be asked back,” all four said in a statement at the same time. And what an honour it will be to see them on stage too. Music lovers of Europe – rejoice!

In non-Take That pop news though, Beyonce Knowles has announced she suffers from the mental condition schizophrenia. “I have someone else that takes over when it’s time for me to work and when I’m on stage, this alter ego that I’ve created that kind of protects me and who I really am,” the former Destiny’s Child front woman said.

Sasha Fierce is the absurdly cool name for this other side of Beyonce’s character, and has cheekily found her way onto the title of her latest album, I Am – Sasha Fierce. We wish Beyonce luck in her struggles to control Sasha and her attempts to take over her music career.
