Adele raises middle finger at the Brit Awards
You’re gonna wish you never had cut her off! In an act of defiance against “the suits” who interrupted her acceptance speech for British Album of the Year — and perhaps to show solidarity with Super Bowl pharaoh bitch goddess M.I.A. — Adele flipped the bird to the crowd at tonight’s Brit Awards. The 23-year-old, who won six Grammys last week, had also picked up the Brit for Best Female Artist of the Year earlier in the evening.
Adele explained after the awards that the gesture wasn’t intended for her fans and that she wished nothing but the best forrrrr youuuuu (as long as you weren’t the one responsible for telling host James Corden to cut her off). “I was about to thank the British public for their support and they cut me off, and I’m sorry if I offended anyone,” she said. “But the suits offended me, so thank you very much for all of your support.”
Watch this international tragedy below. It actually seems like bloody good fun to me (this isn’t America; there aren’t rules) but I’m sure some people are about to freak the eff out!
Judge for yourself, then vote in our poll….
The network later apologised to Adele. Ha! Only in Britain! “The Brits is a live event,” ITV said in a statement. “Unfortunately the programme was over-running and we had to move on. We would like to apologise to Adele for the interruption.”
