For those of you who came after Adele following her heartfelt shoutout to Beyoncé during her acceptance speech for Album of the Year at the 2017 Grammys, I hope what I'm about to share with you will make you come down from your soapbox.
Yeah, despite the fact Adele said she couldn't accept the Grammy for Album of the Year because she thought Beyoncé's Lemonade deserved it, folks still found a way to nitpick at her words.
Adele literally broke her Grammy in half to share it with Beyoncé, but that didn't matter to some people.
Well, I have some news for everyone who expressed anger over the idea Adele's tribute to Beyoncé was in some way disingenuous.
See, I didn't think much of it Sunday night, but I did spot a small pin on Adele's green dress.
Thanks to Instagram user bgkcslays, it appears we now know that pin was actually a lemon, which was clearly a shoutout to Beyoncé and her Lemonade album.
That's right, haters, it looks like Adele wasn't bullshitting when she said Bey's Lemonade deserved to win Album of the Year over her own 25.
Because there's nothing like rubbing salt in the wounds, let's all have a listen to Adele's acceptance speech in full, shall we?
While holding the Grammy for Album of the Year and looking directly at Beyoncé, Adele said,
I can't possibly accept this award, and I'm very humbled and I'm very grateful and gracious, but my artist of my life is Beyoncé and this album for me, the Lemonade album, is just so monumental. Beyoncé, so monumental, and so well thought out and so beautiful and soul-baring and we all got to see another side to you that you don't always let us see and we appreciate that and all us artists here adore you. You are our light and the way you make me and my friends feel, the way you make my black friends feel is empowering, and you make them stand up for themselves and I love you, I always have and I always will.
I'm done defending Adele. If you don't get it now, you never will.
