So when James Corden did it today to Adele at the Brit Awards, she fired back by throwing the middle finger.

Now, we recognize poor Mr. Corden was just following his orders as host, not trying to give the award to another nominee, but still. It stung.

"I am so proud to be British and to be flying the flag," she was saying about her Best Album of the Year win when she was cut short. Apparently the interruption came because it was nearing the end of the show and Blur was slated to perform. Still, she gave producers a piece of her mind and flashed her middle finger as she stormed off the stage.

"I flung the middle finger. That was for the suits at the Brit Awards, not my fans," she said in a later interview with BBC. "I'm sorry if I offended anyone but the suits offended me."

Adele was clearly displeased with how the events turned out, and so was Corden. He expressed his dismay in a later interview as well. "I don't understand quite why I was made to [cut her short]. I was having the best night of my life and then I had to cut Adele off before she's even had chance to say thank you. She's the biggest star in the world. I don't understand what happened but I'm upset about it."

"Blur played for 11 minutes and she didn't get chance to say thank you once," he added.
