If any proof was relevant or even need, Rick Astley received the Best Act Ever Award, yesterday night at the EMAs, proving his fans ‘never gave him up’ either.
Sadly, Rick wasn’t present at the EMAs to pick up the award or even sing his smashing hit song, “Never Gonna Give You Up.” In his absence, though, the Award was picked up by Katy Perry and Perez Hilton who charmed the audience with a quick dance routine to his famous track.
What I find interesting, though, is how powerful the voice of the Internet has grown. Imagine this: a retired, one time pseudo-pop star from the 80’s becomes one of the most famous Internet myths twenty years later, because of one awesomly lameass song.
Seriously, hats of to the interent and all his people. That’s looking at you, Joe.
