OMG!!! Adele broke her Grammy in two after saying it belonged to Beyoncé

In scenes reminiscent of Mean Girls, Adele broke her Grammy for Album of the Year in half on stage at the award ceremony on Sunday night, a happy accident as she declared it truly belongs to Beyoncé.

Adele, who also won the Song of the Year award, explained at length how she felt Lemonade was a more deserving winner than her own 25.

“I can’t possibly accept this award,” she said during her acceptance speech. “The Lemonade album was just so monumental, Beyoncé. It was so monumental and well thought-out and beautiful and soul-bearing… we appreciate that. All of us artists here adore you. You are our light.”

She later added backstage: “I thought it was her year. What the fvck does she have to do to win Album of the Year?”

The moment brought to mind Mean Girls for a lot of people, in which Lindsay Lohan’s protagonist Cady Heron breaks her Spring Fling queen crown into pieces and hands them to the other contestants. There are only photos of the Adele moment as CBS cut away before it happened.

It is essentially de rigueur to extol Beyoncé at award shows by this point, Kanye West having famously intervened during one of Taylor Swift’s VMAs acceptance speeches to point out that B is the more deserving winner.

Adele won the night’s biggest awards, though there were also multiple wins for Chance the Rapper and Drake. Beyoncé picked up Best Urban Contemporary Album for Lemonade.
