Adele Breaks Her Grammy in Half for Beyoncé: “What the F–k Does She Have to Do to Win?”


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.

“I can’t possibly accept this award, and I’m very humbled and very grateful and gracious, but my life is Beyoncé, and the album to me—the Lemonade album, Beyoncé—was so monumental, and so well thought out, and so beautiful and soul-bearing,” Adele said. Addressing Beyoncé directly, she said, “We all got to see another side of you that you don’t always let us see, and we appreciate that. All us artists adore you. You are our light. 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. I love you. I always have. And I always will. Grammys, I appreciate it.”

Like a scene out of Mean Girls, Adele broke the award in half, presumably to share with Beyoncé. When she later appeared in the press room backstage, she elaborated on her sentiments.

“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?”
