Adele Flips the Bird to Producers at the Brit Awards

Oh Adele...so charming, even when you accidentally give the finger to the entire world...

Oh Adele…so charming, even when you accidentally give the finger to the entire world!

Let me explain…

The British soul singer took home the big awards for Best British Album and Best British Female artist at the 2012 Brit Awards in London last night.  Obviously, with such wins come acceptance speeches, and Adele was keeping it classy, expressing her gratitude about her success, saying:

“Nothing makes me prouder than coming home with six Grammys and then coming to the Brits and winning album of the year. I’m so proud to be British and to be flying our flag.”

Suddenly, host James Cordon rushed in and interrupted the 22-year-old so they could move on to the next musical guest.  Met by boos from the crowd, Adele simply turned, asked “Can I just say, then, goodbye and I’ll see you next time round?” and flipped off the cameras before heading off stage.  followed by her flipping off the cameras.and very rudely cut off by host James Cordon.

Adele later explained the incident to the BBC, saying that the gesture was not to the audience at home, but to the suits in charge:

“I flung the middle finger. That was for the suits at the Brit Awards, not my fans. I’m sorry if I offended anyone but the suits offended me.”

Well at least that makes more sense than MIA just randomly flipping the bird to everyone watching the Super Bowl…and now, everyone loves Adele just a little bit more.  *Walks down the hall humming “Rolling in the Deep”*
