Every morning, Buro brings you an around-the-world wrap-up of what you need to know

1. Adele and Tame Impala clean up at the Brit Awards
Adele bagged both best female artist and the Global Success award, using her win to publicly state her support for Kesha, who has accused her producer Dr Luke of assaulting her. Australian act Tame Impala won best international group, and Drake made a surprise appearance, performing on stage with Rihanna for their new single 'Work.'

2. Medicinal cannabis could soon be legal in Australia
The Senate has passed a bill to make amendments to the Narcotic Drugs Act to allow medicinal marijuana to be grown in Australia. Cannabis can be used to treat chronic pain, nausea during chemotherapy, multiple sclerosis and epilepsy, among other health conditions. Under the scheme, cannabis would be available to patients with a prescription.

3. Resting bitch face is ruining Bella Hadid's career
The statuesque 19-year-old - who, it has to be said, never looks quite as content as big sister Gigi - admitted she's worried her resting bitch face is giving her a bad reputation. Speaking at London's Elle Style Awards, she revealed: "I've got resting bitch face so I'm trying to think about happy thoughts now when I model. I'm trying not to look like I'm about to murder someone."

4. Johnson & Johnson talc powder linked to ovarian cancer
The family of an American woman who died from ovarian cancer last year has successfully sued the toiletries giant. Jacqueline Fox, who died aged 62, used Johnson & Johnson baby powder and Shower to Shower powder, both of which contain talc, for 35 years for feminine hygiene purposes. The family will receive $100 million in damages from the company, although many researchers believe there is insufficient evidence linking talc to cancer. Johnson & Johnson is expected to appeal.
