First there was the leak. Then, there was the gig that never was.

And now? Well, get out your umbrellas people, we have another live one.

The main rule which the Meteor Music Awards abide by is as follows:

“For nomination all artists must have had an album commercially released between 1st November 2007 and 31st December 2008 in Ireland (excluding greatest hits/best of releases etc)”

There are three exceptions to this rule (nominations for the Hope for 2009, Best Irish Pop Act and Best Live Performance categories), but the Best International Female category is not one of these. So you have to wonder what the hell Rihanna is doing on the list seeing as her current album, “Good Girl Gone Bad”, was released back in June 2007, well before the cut-off point.

What’s that I hear from the Meteor HQ as they wrestle with their hangovers from yesterday’s launch? Oooops.
