Rick Astley: King of the World!

|

Has the Rickrolling craze just gone way too far or is this the best, funniest news ever? We can’t decide but on hearing that Rick Astley is up for Best Act Ever at the forthcoming MTV Europe Music Awards, we’re stunned, either way!

The British pop star, who experienced a second wave of fame this year when an online meme viral linked to his 1987 hit Never Gonna Give You Up, is competing against Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, Green Day, Tokio Hotel and U2 to win the award.

This is Rick Astley, people! Who last had a proper chart hit in the UK in 1991. Seriously. Actually, it would be amazing if he won. Could you imagine the Bono rage? Probably worth it for that alone. …

We’ll find out at the MTV Europe awards from Liverpool on November 6.
