Do you remember in Mean Girls when Cady wins Prom Queen and rather than just accepting the award she takes the tiara off her head, snaps it into little pieces and throws it to people in the crowd? You know, this bit:
Well, that happened IRL at the Grammy’s last night. And it was spectacular.
After winning the Grammy for Album of the Year, Adele came to the stage to collect her award. But in a curve ball literally NO ONE saw coming, she told the audience, “I can’t possibly accept this award… I’m very humbled and I’m very grateful, but Beyonce is the artist of my life”.
No, YOU’RE CRYING.
But how did Bey react to this moving tribute? Like a damn Queen, obviously.
(FYI this is exactly how Beyoncé looks at me in my dreams when I offer to do a duet with her.)
Not just content to dedicate the award to Queen Bey, Adele took it one step further and broke the award in half. And look at how excited she was by her own bad-assery. Just look.
Seriously, could there be a better start to Galentine’s Day?
So this week, bugger Valentine’s, let’s all be more like Adele – let’s take a moment to appreciate the fellow Queens in our life. We might not be able to share a Grammy with them, but we could probably split a brownie.
Here’s the video of the full acceptance speech and just a heads up, you should probably keep some tissues nearby. Just sayin’.
