NOTHING BUT TOTAL RESPECT FOR...

This should make up for the Brits finally stopping giving her Best British Female year in, year out even when she'd made no new records: Annie Lennox is being given the Founders Award by the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers.

It's because they think she's great:

ASCAP president and chairman Marilyn Bergman said: "Annie Lennox is one of the finest musical voices of our time - unlike any other, uncompromising and unpredictable.

"Annie has worn every musical garment possible: Scottish folk singer, jazz singer, punk, rock - changing her image, but never her commitment to originality and excellence."


To be honest, he sounds more like he's describing the mission statement of some mid-Western stationery suppliers rather than a singer - "what did you think of the Lennox gig last night?" "I was struck by her commitment to excellence throughout..."
