(Newser) – Adele pulled an MIA Super Bowl stunt and flipped the bird at Britain's music awards last night when one of her acceptance speeches was cut short. She grabbed honors for Best British Female Solo Artist and Best Album in London, a week after scooping up six awards at the Grammys. "I'm so proud to be British and to be flying our flag," Adele was saying when her second speech was cut off by the program host so the final performers could be introduced, reports the BBC. The audience booed, and the singer flipped off "the suits," she explained later. "I was about to thank the British public for all their support but they cut me off," the star said backstage. "I flung the middle finger. That was for the suits at the Brit Awards, not my fans. I'm sorry if I offended anyone, but the suits offended me." (Read more flip the bird stories.)
