Pretty bizarre choice for an awards show which honours women, but on their website, Glamour said 'But these days most women want men—no, need men—in our tribe.'

A bit of a curious statement, but nevertheless, they named U2 front man Bono as one of their choices.

And Twitter have A LOT to say about it...

It seems that Glamour magazine have driven the web wild with their controversial choice! 

This bonkers award choice comes after a year of crazy honours in 2016 including Wonder Woman announced as a UN Ambassador and race horse American Pharaoh nominated for Sports Personality of the year.
