Stormzy has been praised by Jeremy Corbyn and fellow Labour MPs after he asked Theresa May "where's the money for Grenfell?" in his live performance at the Brit Awards.

He also won the most competitive prize, best British male, where he fought off tough competition from Ed Sheeran, Liam Payne, Rag "N" Bone Man and newcomer Loyle Carner.

"But I just think I've not met a single woman in my entire life that hasn't experienced some kind of sexism or sexual harassment of any kind".

Lipa, who topped United Kingdom charts with her song "No Rules", took the female prize and dedicated her trophy to all the female musicians who "have allowed us to dream this big".

Stormzy took aim at Theresa May at the Brits. What you thought we just forgot about Grenfell?' the music star raps at glitzy bash.

He also attacked the government saying "you criminals, and you got the cheek to call us savages".

In a politically charged rap, Stormzy sang: "Yo Theresa May, where's the money for Grenfell?".

Lorde triumphed over her celebrity BFF Taylor Swift, Alicia Keys, P!nk, and Bjork in the International Female Solo Artist category.

Accepting his prize for British album of the year for Gang Signs And Prayer, the rapper told the audience: "Firstly, I always give all the glory to God, God this is all you, this is all you God".

But the entire ceremony had a political edge, with many stars wearing white roses in solidarity with the Time's Up and #Metoo movements highlighting sexual harassment in the entertainment industry. The 27-year-old received his trophy from Rolling Stone Ronnie Wood, who called Sheeran "a lovely young guy".
