Remember earlier this month when M.I.A. started a shizzstorm of “controversy” by flipping her middle finger during Madonna‘s halftime performance at Super Bowl XLVI? Yeah, well, British singer Adele did the same thing last night at the 2012 Brit Awards and guess what? In the UK, it wasn’t really a big deal at all. Adele was presented with the Brit Award for Album of the Year and when she was cut off by producers while giving her acceptance speech, Adele flipped off “the suits” with her middle finger. While M.I.A.‘s finger flip caused about a week of controversy, I sincerely doubt we’ll hear about this Adele flip past today. Click below to watch video of Adele‘s cheeky finger flash.
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, 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!
LOL. This middle finger business is such a non issue. I think it’s great that Grammy darling Adele decided to flip off the fools that cut off her acceptance speech at the Brits last night. It’s easy for the up-tights to get really angry with M.I.A. for the finger gesture because most of them don’t even know who she is. Now Adele, everyone knows who she is. While it’s true that Adele‘s act of defiance took place on the Brits and not the Grammys, I still think it’s fabulous that she let the bird fly. Maybe the up-tights will eventually realize that this non-issue is truly a complete non-issue. I guess we’ll see.
