Adele slay at the Grammys
Adele snapped her Album of the Year Grammys statue in half and had the most amazing reaction when she did it.The 28-year-old entertainer couldn’t stop laughing when the statue broke – and some fans think maybe she split her Grammy in half to give part of it to Beyonce for her album Lemonade!
Adele tearfully said during her acceptance speech for 25 that she was dedicating the award to Beyonce.
The British singer took the stage to accept the award for Album of the Year, for her multi-platinum album, 25, but it was Beyonce’s Lemonade, also nominated in the same category, that she felt deserved the ultimate honor.
“Tonight, winning this, kind of feels full circle and like a bit of me has come back to myself, but I can’t possibly accept this award and I’m very humbled and I’m very grateful and gracious,” an emotional Adele said in her speech, before she went on to give due praise to Beyonce.
“The artist of my life is Beyonce and this album for me, the Lemonade album, is just so monumental,” the 28-year-old singer continued. “It was so monumental and so well thought out and so beautiful and soul-bearing and we all got to see another side to you that you don’t always let us see and we so appreciate that.”
“And all of us artists here adore you,” Adele said to cheers and applause from the audience. “You are our light and the way that you make me and my friends feel, the way that you make my black friends feel is empowering and you make them stand up for themselves. And I love you. I always have and I always will.”
Beyonce returned the love from her front-row seat, mouthing “I love you, thank you. I love you,” back to Adele, as tears streamed down her face.
