Why Adele's Grammys flub was actually a pop-star power play

Why Adele's Grammys flub was actually a pop-star power play

"This album for me, the "Lemonade" album, was so monumental", she added. The imagery, certainly of a piece with Lemonade as a whole, evoked African spirituality while also incorporating Renaissance iconography.

Adele won three major awards: album of the year for "25," as well as record of the year and song of the year, for the single "Hello".

Despite referring to Konecki as her "partner" while answering questions from reporters in the backstage pressroom, many have taken her slip-of-the-tongue to mean that the London-born singer has in fact already married Konecki in a private ceremony. When she took the stage again to accept one of her five Grammys of the night for "Song of the Year" ["Hello"], Adele spoke about the tribute. We appreciate that. All of us artists here adore you. And I love you.

While she's enjoyed spending a few months at home with her family, Adele will soon be headed back to work.

"That being said, the songs were pretty complete as we got them". During her tearful acceptance speech the British singer called Beyoncé "the artist of my life" and described Lemonade as "so monumental". "It was an inspiration for all of us to see him do that".

Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti asked ICE on Friday for "greater transparency about ongoing operations" within the city. Garcia de Rayos was arrested almost a decade ago for using a false ID to get a job as a janitor at an amusement park.

After her mesmerizing Grammys performance, Beyoncé returned to the mortal world to accept her Grammy for Best Urban Contemporary Album. She put her own spin on his 1996 hit "Fastlove", but unexpectedly stopped the performance after she realized something wasn't right.

On stage, Adele described how she was pregnant when she won her last Grammy Awards in 2012.

Adele first sparked rumours she and Konecki had Wednesday in secret last December when she was seen wearing a gold band on her ring finger, following speculation the couple were set to tie the knot over the Christmas period.

The Chainsmokers, who have dominated the pop charts, are nominated for best new artist with Chance the Rapper, Maren Morris, Anderson.Paak and Kelsea Ballerini. She performed "Hello" from her album 25 and it was incredible.

More than 13,000 music professionals in the Recording Academy voted to determine winners of the Grammys on Sunday, with other key winners including Sturgill Simpson's A Sailor's Guide To Earth for best country album and Cage The Elephant's Tell Me I'm Pretty for best rock album.
