Corinne Bailey Rae -- Toast at Butter

4/24/2007 11:11 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

She might be the biggest thing in Britain since sliced bread, but when she tried to get into Butter Monday night, Corinne Bailey Rae got smeared.

The Grammy-nominated chanteuse was denied at the downtown celeb-boite on a busy night, though she didn't exactly put up a Jason "Gummi Bear" Davis -- or even Shauna Sand-sized fight to get in. After shuffling up to the door, the Grammy-nominated Brit huddled under a jacket like she was E.T. being hidden from the Feds.

After cowering next to a supersized bodyguard version of Fantasia Barrino, Corinne tried telephonic assistance to get through the forbidding glass doors, but to no avail. And following that pathetically mild attempt, Corrine turned right around and cabbed it back -- to whatever bed she'd just rolled out of.

That's because you don't listen to decent music, Corinne is awesome. I don't know why TMZ hates on British musicians with the pot shot at Jamiroquai a while back. Too bad Europe appreciates talent while America only appreciates boobs.

WHO IS SHE. A BRITISH SINGER WHO'S VIDEOS ONLY GET PLAYED ON V H1. PROBABLY WHY NOBODY KNOWS HER.

EVEN IF THEY DID KNOW HER, HOW WAS ANYBODY GOING TO RECOGNIZE HER WITH THAT UGLY SHIRT ON HER HEAD AND TWO FAT WOMEN ESCORTING HER WHO WERE DRESSED LIKE CRAP.

WHY ARE THE BRITISH SENDING THEIR CRAPPY D LIST CELEBRITIES OVER HERE. IF ITS NOT ROBBIE WILLIAMS ITS CORINE BAILEY RAE OR THOSE LOSERS WITH A REALITY ONSHOW ON E WHO ARE HUSBAND AND WIFE. I DON'T EVEN KNOW THEIR NAMES!

"Butter" is so last year. They let trash like that nasty Tinsley Mortimer in, while barring truly nice and talented people like Corrine Baily Rae.

I like the comment "we send all our crap over the US" and why not??? It fits in perfectly with most of the talentless idols you already have. God forbid we'd send anything decent over to you. You wouldn't recognise it if we did!

Why I am not suprised of Posters #1 and 2 . One can safely imagine that you never heard nor can appreciate Jazz or Neo-Soul. Exhibit your lack of taste with pride.

I was at Butter a few weeks ago and I saw them turn away comedienne Amy Sedaris and her ex, the well-known cable producer Myron Kempelstein. At the time I just thought that they didn't let anyone in who is over age 40, but now after the incident with Corinne I think they are just not tres au courant.

Friend and supporter    

Why would TMZ refer to her bodyguard as a Fantasia Barrino look a like. It is quite obvious TMZ will never publish anything positive about Fantasia Barrino, never. The girl is going to have to continue to work hard and remain humble and continue to trust God. Those who publish this don't even know or believe there iis a God. I would never want to be a celebrity. People are so mean, I mean just plain cruel. The internet has not helped, not at all!!!

Yeah, her voice is amazing. And I'm American!!! The thing about these whack ass clubs...its all about publicity. Turn away anyone who's not an A-lister, and people will talk. And if you're African American, you have to be a musical sell-out like Diddy to get in. But if you think about it, all clubs are the same...its the crowd that differs from time-to-time.
