Adele Flipped Off Producers At Brit Awards

What is this, the Super Bowl?

At the 2012 Brit Awards in London on Tuesday, Adele won two big awards: Best British Album and Best British Female Artist. 

And judging from her acceptance speech, she was a happy camper. So why exactly did she decide to pull an M.I.A. and give the middle finger on stage?

"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," Adele told reporters after the event.

Girl, I hate to break it to you, but those 'suits' are running the show. Also, this is England. The hand gestures are different over there. Doesn’t a middle finger mean "peace" or "I love you" or "I'm hungry" or something?

During Adele's acceptance speech for winning Best British Album, she told the crowd: "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."

It was then that host James Cordon stepped in unexpectedly to cut her off and introduce the next musical performance.

Adele asked "Can I just say, then, goodbye and I'll see you next time round?" followed by her flipping off the cameras.

M.I.A. did something similar when she flipped off cameras broadcasting to over 100 million viewers during Madonna's Super Bowl performance.

"It's such a teenager…irrelevant thing to do," Madonna said about the gesture.
