Adele’s middle finger gesture sours Brit Awards success after singer is cutoff
It was supposed to be a coronation of sorts for Adele at the Brit Awards but it didn’t turn out that way.
The British singer had just picked up six Grammys earlier this month and the Brits represented somewhat of a homecoming after an incredibly successful year fuelled by her album 21 and songs like the inescapable “Rolling in the Deep.”
She won six Grammys in L.A. last week — a haul matched only by Beyonce.
But when she stepped on stage Tuesday night to receive the Brit Award for the best album award (she’d already won best British female) and was in the middle of an obviously heartfelt speech, she was interrupted by show host James Corden.
”Are you about to cut me off?” said a clearly unimpressed Adele to Corden. “Can I just say then, goodbye and I’ll see you next time around.” (Photo: Dylan Martinez/Reuters)
