British songstress Adele made a rude gesture to “the suits” behind the Brit Awards last night (February 21st) after they sent comedian James Corden on stage to cut her off mid-acceptance speech.

The 23-year-old picked up two gongs at the ceremony for Best British Album and Best Female Solo Artist, but was interrupted by Corden, who delivered the message that it was time for Blur to take to the stage.

At this, the pop sensation flipped her middle finger to the crowd, but later stated this was aimed at “the suits” as she wanted to ensure fans her action was not directed at them.

Looking stunning in a full-length laced gown, diamond earrings and bobbed blonde hairdo, the singer said: “I was about to thank the British public for their support. They cut me off, sorry if I offended anyone but the suits offended me.”

The vocalist recently cleaned up at the Grammy Awards after nabbing six prizes, including Record of the Year, Album of the Year and Song of the Year.
