British singers Lily Allen, Sting and Elton John were honoured for their songwriting by the US music industry during a ceremony in London on Tuesday.
Licensing body Broadcast Music, Inc (BMI) handed out awards for the most-performed songs in the US.
Lily Allen’s The Fear won a trophy, while Sting won a prize for the Police song Every Breath You Take, which has been played more than 10 million times.
Lily Allen has accepted damages over claims she made offensive statements about Ashley and Cheryl Cole and the Beckhams.
The claims were made by French football magazine So Foot in 2009, who have now agreed to pay Allen damages over false quotes.
The 25-year-old’s solicitor, Mark Thomson, told Mr Justice Eady the publishers now accept Allen did not make the comments.
The Smile singer has already accepted Â£10,000 damages from British newspaper The Sun for reprinting the allegations.
Sarah Jessica Parker delivered an almighty snub to Lily Allen when she called her new boutique ordinary, according to reports.
The style-icon called into pregnant Lily’s new vintage store Lucy In Disguise, in London’s Covent Gardens, and looked over the clothes in silence. She left empty-handed, a report in the Daily Star said.
An onlooker told the UK paper, “Sarah went round the rails, signing autographs, but she didn’t say anything about the vintage clothes.
“The friend she was with asked her when they got outside what she thought and Sarah just replied bluntly, ‘very ordinary’.”
After being a walking designer clothes horse for six series of the lavishly-styled Sex And The City and two follow-up blockbuster flicks, Sarah, 45, knows her way around a clothes rack.
Lily has been hoping to attract the more discerning celebrity shopper and is said to have banned all mention of SJP’s visit.
