Hollywood Dirt: Adele Flips the Bird at Awards Show with one finger, Wears Engagement Ring on the other & more
ADELE FLIPS THE BIRD AT THE BRIT AWARDS: Hot off her six Grammy wins, ADELE was the big winner at the Brit awards last night, but that’s not what everyone’s talking about. While accepting her award for Best British Album, Adele’s speech apparantly ran long prompting show producers to order the host to cut her off and introduce the band BLUR, who was closing out the show.
Adele later assured her fans the gesture was not aimed at them or the crowd. “I flung the middle finger. That was for the suits at the Brit Awards, not my fans,” she told the BBC. “I’m sorry if I offended anyone but the suits offended me.”
Giving the bird wasn’t the only reason people were talking about Adele’s fingers … she was also sporting a huge rock on her left hand, fueling talk of an engagement to her boyfriend. There’s been no confirmation, though, that was she was rocking was indeed engagement bling.
