FLIPPED OFF

Adele Flashes Middle Finger at Brit Awards

Flipping the bird on broadcast television seems to be a popular gesture among musicians these days—or at least an impromptu one. Picking up two awards at the Brit Awards ceremony in London on Tuesday, the lovely Adele flashed her middle finger when one of her acceptance speeches was cut short. “That was for the suits at the Brit Awards, not my fans,” the pop star bashfully exclaimed. “I’m sorry if I offended anyone, but the suits offended me.” The soulful “Rolling in the Deep” singer won the prize for best British album and best British female, capping a hugely successful year following her six Grammy wins last weekend.
