The singer Adele (Adele Laurie Blue Adkins), has joined the pantheon of modern celebrity -women who believe that flipping the bird in front of alarge public audience (on television) is a reasonable way to behave.
And maybe it is.
Perhaps M.I.A. (and now Adele) will do to the middle finger what Bill Clinton did for the ‘Lewinsky.’ Oral sex isn’t even sex anymore nor is is, is. So it can only be a matter of time before the middle-finger replaces the handshake–somewhere around 12-21-2012 if the Mayan’s were right.
Adele’s digital communication came during the Brit Music Awards, after her second acceptance speech was cut short. Must be rough having your second acceptance speech cut short. It’s always nice to re-thank everyone you thanked the first time. The little people get so cranky when you forget to mention their tiny contributions to your success. Wouldn’t want them flipping you the bird the next time you meet. or maybe you do?
Adele did qualify her behavior at least.
I’m sorry if I offended anyone but it was the suits that offended me,” Adele said. “Thank you all very much and thanks to my fans. I don’t want them to think I was swearing at them.”
I guess that was really a private message for the suits, a little making of the sausage inter-office–communication, and Adele was just giving-it-to-The Man!
We are the 99%. Ans why not, she’s only worth about £6 million.
And isn’t this another win for feminism? A woman worth £6 million can flip off a live television audience. You’ve come a long way baby.
