Adele Tearfully Dedicates Album of the Year Grammy to Beyonce (Video)
The 28-year-old entertainer dedicated the win to Beyonce‘s Lemonade instead, and things got emotional. Adele expressed to Beyonce how much the album meant to her and her life, and Beyonce got visibly teary as well.
“I can’t possibly accept this award,” Adele explained to the audience as she began her speech. “And I’m very humbled and I’m very grateful and gracious but my artist of my life is Beyoncé and this album to me, the Lemonade album, was just so monumental, Beyonce. It was so monumental and so well thought out, and so beautiful and soul-bearing. We got to see another side to you that you don’t always let us see, and we appreciate that, and all us artists here who adore you. And you are our lives, and 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, and I love you. I always have and I always will.”
