After her speech is cut short, "21" singer Adele expresses herself with a gesture
Apparently, Adele has hired the same etiquette coach as M.I.A.
Much like M.I.A. did at this year's Super Bowl, "Rolling With the Deep" singer Adele delivered a one-fingered salute at the BRIT Awards on Tuesday, flipping off the ITV cameras after the show cut her acceptance speech for British Album of the Year Award to make way for Blur's show-closing performance.
Huh; with all of the throat problems that Adele has experienced lately, one would think that she'd be grateful for the opportunity to save her voice. Then again, maybe she was just indicating, "I'm Number 1."
Adele — who in addition to winning Best British Album of the Year for "21" won for British female solo artist — expressed her displeasure, with her voice this time, during a press conference after the event.
"I was cut off during my speech but I wanted to thank the British public for all their support," the singer said, according to Spinner. "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."
