Cosmopolitan's Women of the Year awards — a veiled insult to womankind
With the odd notable exception (Ashley Jensen, we take our hats off to you), the Cosmopolitan Ultimate Women of the Year awards seemed to make a point of celebrating the dullest specimens of femalehood. Leona Lewis and Rihanna, personality-free zones both, won the Newcomer and Mistress of Music gongs respectively, which in a year of interesting, feisty acts like Kate Nash and, um, Feist to name but two is just shocking.
And we love the prize that Katie Price got her mucky mitts on: the Be The Best You Can Be prize. While it is probably accurate to state that Price is, indeed, the best *she* can be, could they not have given the award to someone who, when being the best they can be, transcends the state of being rubbish at everything?
