At the 2017 Grammys Sunday, Adele’s 25 was named Album of the Year, beating Beyoncé’s Lemonade, Justin Bieber’s Purpose, Drake’s Views and Sturgill Simpson’s A Sailor’s Guide to Earth. Adele, who had just won Record of the Year for “Hello,” was totally beside herself and burst into tears.

“Like I said in my speech, my Album of the Year is Lemonade. So, a piece of me did die inside, as a Beyoncé stan—not going to lie,” Adele said. “I was completely rooting for her, I voted for her. I felt like it was her time to win. What the f–k does she have to do to win Album of the Year?”
