British pop star Will Young has launched a scathing attack on the UK's Brit awards, labelling the high profile event "strange".

Despite the ALL TIME LOVE hitmaker's nomination for the Best Male Solo Artist award, he insists the star-studded occasion leaves him cold.

He says, "I hate them. If I wasn't forced to go, I wouldn't bother attending.

"It's just a strange event - so many egos in one room."

But he insists he is pleased about his nod: "I'm chuffed to be nominated, its just not my kind of thing."

The ceremony - the British equivalent of the Grammy Awards - takes place in London's Earls Court venue on 15 February (06).
