It’s Not Me, It’s You singer Lily Allen has revealed that she believes that Adele was cut off during her acceptance speech, due to the sexist attitude of the music industry towards women. Adele was giving her second acceptance speech of the night, when Brit Awards host James Corden had to cut her off due to time constraints and Lily Allen has now accused the Brit Awards bosses of sexism.
Lily Allen took to her official Twitter page to make the statement and express the fact that she was not exactly surprised by the controversial cut off decision. Lily tweeted, "I'd rather hear adeles acceptance speech. I can't say I'm surprised. It was like the music industry's attitude to women played out as a metaphor."
Adele has received the backing of a number of her fellow music industry peers, including Girls Aloud singer Kimberley Walsh, The Saturdays singer Mollie King and Professor Green. Brit Awards host James Corden also admitted that he felt it was a wrong move and that he feels extremely bad about what happened. Adele won two Brit Awards on the night but the focus the next day was more about her being cut off than it was her success.
