The BRIT Awards 2012: Adele Wins Two Awards, Then Flips The Bird

The 2012 BRIT Awards are underway, and so far in the ceremony, Adele is (unsurprisingly) picking up some major awards – though she’s not receiving nearly the same kind of respect she had at The Grammys. The 21 songstress has won Best British Album and Best British Female Artist, and threw up her middle finger when her speech was cut short. “It was for the suits, not for my fans. Sorry if I offended you,” assured the singer. Way to piss off the artist you just named as one of Britain’s best, chaps. While you grumble about Adele’s too-short speech, watch her perform “Rolling In The Deep” below.

Adele’s speech gets interrupted — right after she says how proud she is to be British. Good timing, James Corden.
