Singer's gesture overshadows prizes at Brit Awards

Singing sensation Adele continued rolling in the prizes at the Brit Awards in London, but she made headlines Wednesday for something else: she gave the middle finger when she was cut off during the live broadcast.

The British star, who raked in six Grammys last week, won best album at the Brits for "21," which featured the hit single "Rolling in the Deep."

But when Brit host James Corden cut her speech short Tuesday night, she made the rude gesture.

    Really fellow bloggers, is there really any one out there who hasn't flipped the bird at someone? I don't condone this kind of behavior from a public person but it is just a finger.

    Maybe it was just a sudden arthritis attack. Let's all send her aspirin.

    Reason with talent like Adele's I doubt that she is just a flash in the pan. Guess you are a lover of rap and they don't usually enjoy a real talented singer. Anyone with a voice can rap and that does not mean a good voice.
