Gabrielle has launched a scathing attack on the Mobo Awards, calling for it to be scrapped altogether.
The singer’s main points of attack were that the awards lack a soul category and that they’re too focused on American music.
Speaking to the BBC, she said: "How can you leave out the soul award? I think you need to shut it down. It just shows how behind the British music scene is because that wouldn't happen in America."
She continued: "Music of black origin is soul and jazz and anything else that is inspired by black music. I think we should all turn off. And anyway, it's all the time dominated by the Americans.
"We're still licking their bootys because it pays homage to the fact that they're still kicking our arses, the Americans. They're still more knowledgeable than us."
Artists including Amy Winehouse, Rhianna and Kanye West all walked away with awards at the o2 Arena ceremony on Tuesday night.
