During last night’s Grammy Awards, Adele’s 25 was named Album of the Year instead of Beyoncé’s Lemonade. Now, don’t get me wrong, I LOVE ADELE and I LOVE BEYONCE. But let’s be serious, Bey deserved that fucking award.
After giving a speech for winning Record of the Year for “Hello,” which beat “Formation”, Adele returned to the stage to accept her Grammy for Album of the year. In her speech, she said:
“[Motherhood] is really hard… Tonight, winning this kind of feels full circle and like a bit of me has come back to myself.
But I can’t possibly accept this award and I’m very humble and very grateful and gracious, but the artist of my life is Beyonce and this album to me, the Lemonade album is so monumental, Beyoncé. So monumental. And so well thought out, and so beautiful and soul baring. And we all got another side to you that you don’t always let us see and we appreciate that… all us artists here [expletive] adore you. You are our light. And the way that 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, I always will. Grammys I appreciate it. The academy, I love, you, my manager, my husband, and my son. You’re the only reason I do it. Thank you so much, thank you very much to everybody.”
So basically, Adele made everyone cry hysterically, including Beyoncé:
