Adele has been lambasted by newspapers suggesting that she made a rude gesture at the end of an acceptance speech during the Brit music awards. However, on watching the event in slow motion, it becomes obvious that she was just asking for an extra one minute so that she could thank a few people.

Earlier in the evening, Blur front man Damon Albarn had made a long and rambling speech that caused the proceedings to be running late by the time Adele received her second award of the evening. The Mastercard Album of the Year award was for her record breaking album 21, and was presented by George Michael, who had flown in from Australia specially.

Her acceptance speech, which started emotionally, was in full flow when James Corden interrupted her and hurriedly introduced the final act of the night.

Ironically, it was Blur who were waiting to perform, and the TV coverage cut over to show the Brit Pop legends' ten minute closing set. However, just before the camera cut away from Adele and Corden, she pleaded to be allowed to finish, and indicated to Blur just how much longer she needed to complete her speech, using her middle finger.

As usual, the UK tabloid press were quick to pounce on the event and report it as an obscene gesture. They even quoted Adele as admitting to 'flipping off the suits' and being sorry if it upset her fans.

But it will take a lot to persuade the British public that their adored songstress could do any wrong. They applaud the People's Pop Princess for asserting her right to her final minute.

As this story went to press a Facebook group called 'Sack Blur from the Olympic Closing Ceremony and get Adele instead' had 850,000 members.

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
