‘I was completely rooting for her, I voted for her. I felt like it was her time to win. What the f*ck does she have to do to win Album of the Year?’
Adele broke her award in half to share with Beyonce after picking up the coveted Album of the Year prize at the the 59th Annual Grammy Awards because she didn’t feel she deserved it.
She is understood to have split it in half to share with Beyonce, and explained at the press conference: ‘Like I said in my speech, my album of the year is Lemonade. So a piece of me did die inside, as a Beyoncé fan — not going to lie.
There was not a dry eye in the house as the 28-year-old singer accepted the most coveted gong of the night.
It was there where Adele dedicated her big win to the 35-year-old singer as she praised the pregnant star for the ‘monumental’ Lemonade album.
The Rolling In the Deep hitmaker said: ‘I can’t possibly accept this award and I’m very humbled and I’m very grateful but the artist of my life is Beyonce. This album to me, the Lemonade album was just so monumental and so well thought out and so beautiful and soul baring.
‘The way you make me and my friends feel, the way you make my black friends feel is so empowering. I love you. I always have and I always will.’
