Adele Gives Finger at BRITs, Show Apologizes
Adele received two Brit Awards and sung a marvelous rendition of "Rolling in the Deep" at the awards show on Tuesday; however, all that was overshadowed by an obscene gesture that the best-selling artist made after her acceptance speech.

The breakout pop singer replied, "Can I just say, then, goodbye and I'll see you next time 'round, eh?" which she then followed with the offensive gesture.
According to the UK Press Association, the show organizers have apologized to Adele for cutting her short, saying, "We don't want this to undermine her incredible achievement in winning our night's biggest award, that tops off what's been an incredible year for her."
