Adele Takes BRIT Awards & Flips The Engagement Ring
[photogallerylink id=99517 align=right][lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Adele[/lastfm] gave the finger at last night’s BRIT Awards when she was cut off while making her acceptance speech. Adele had just won the award for British Album of the Year for 21 when she made the rude gesture – giving the bird wasn’t the only reason people were talking about Adele’s fingers!
Adele was saying, “thank you very, very much. Nothing is better than coming home with six Grammies and winning Album of the Year. Nothing makes me prouder than to be British.”
That’s when host James Corden cut her off. Not only did the crowd boo, but he got the finger from Adele…
Adele also won for British Female Solo Artist during last night’s ceremonies.
At a post-awards press conference, Adele commented on her reaction…
“I was cut off during my speech but I wanted to thank the British public for all their support. I was held up with my voice and troubles but the album kept walking without me. I flipped the bird for the suits at the BRITS who cut me off. Sorry if I offended anyone but it was for them, not for the fans.”
Giving the bird wasn’t the only reason people were talking about Adele’s fingers …
She was also sporting a huge rock on her left hand, fueling talk of an engagement to her boyfriend Simon Konecki. There’s been no confirmation of that.
