Is anyone else growing a little tired of the Adele-at-the-Brits scandal?
The 'Rolling In The Deep' star made headlines when she issued a one-fingered salute after she was cut off during her acceptance speech at the 2012 BRIT Awards. And we all thought that might be the end of the matter.
But Adele is still intent on unleashing her fury unto ITV, the network responsible for irritating her during the awards ceremony. The Daily Star has reported that the British singer isnow refusing to appear in ITV’s upcoming music special, turned down an offer to appear in ITVs ‘The X Factor‘ and, instead, promised to perform on rival show, ‘The Voice’, which is aired on the BBC.
An unnamed source revealed that Adele is still humiliated by the way she was treated at the Brits:
“Adele was embarrassed by the way she was treated in front of millions of viewers by ITV... By turning down a music special with the network and also appearing on its main rival’s music show she is giving them the ultimate one-fingered salute.”
And what does she hope to gain from this attack?
"Adele is the biggest British name in music in the world at the moment and her refusal to work with ITV will hit them hard.”
Is it just us or has this entire thing been blown out of proportion? Yes, Adele was cut off during her speech and, yes, Blur were allowed to perform an 11 minute set. But is Adele's response really going to change any of that?
And, in their defence, ITV have already apologised for the unfortunate Brit Awards event:
“We don’t want this to undermine her incredible achievement in winning our night’s biggest award. The Brits is a live event. Unfortunately the program was over running and we had to move on.”
Ah, moving on. That sounds like a nice idea at this point, doesn't it? Maybe we should all move on and let this one go now...
