Lily Allen Defends Adele, Calls Brit Awards Interruption 'Industry Sexism'

Adele's decision to flip the bird when her acceptance speech was cut off during the Brit Awards was a perfectly appropriate reaction -- just ask Lily Allen.

"I'd rather hear Adele's acceptance speech," Allen tweeted. "I can't say I'm surprised. It was like the music industry's attitude to women played out as a metaphor."

The British pop singer wasn't the only one offended by the industry, Adele wasn't exactly happy with the people in charge.

"I was about to thank the British public for their support and they cut me off," the singer said after the show. "And I'm sorry if I offended anyone. But the suits offended me, so thank you very much for all of your support."

Adele took home awards for British Album of The Year and Best British Female Artist.
