So the Grammy’s happened yesterday, and Adele won Song, Record, and Album of the year, over Beyoncé who was also a nominee in all of those categories. There’s been a lot of shade about Adele’s 25 winning Album Of the Year, since the winner herself felt that Beyoncé was sorely overlooked for that award (black representation and all)
SO SHE BROKE HER TROPHY TO SHARE IT WITH BEYONCE!
“But I can’t possibly accept this award. And I’m very humbled and I’m very grateful and gracious. But my artist of my life is Beyoncé. And this album to me, the “Lemonade” album, is just so monumental. Beyoncé, it’s so monumental. And so well thought out, and so beautiful and soul-baring and we all got to see another side to you that you don’t always let us see. And we appreciate that. And all us artists here adore you. You are our light.
And the way that you make me and my friends feel, the way 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. Grammys, I appreciate it. The academy, I love you. My manager, my husband and my son. You’re the only reason I do it. Thank you so much. Thank you very much to everybody.”
And Beyonce was understandably in a puddle of tears after that.
