Adele has been the subject of social media debate since the cameras caught her “walking out” of the Grammy Award presentation show during Harry Styles’ acceptance speech. However, singer Lizzo has now cleared the air for good, confirming Adele left her seat for reasons less dramatic than a supposed beef with Harry.
Taking to TikTok, Lizzo ended the speculations, saying she captured Adele’s real reaction on camera. Her revelation confirmed that the 34-year-old singer stayed through Harry’s acceptance speech and was not unhappy as the show and most netizens tried to portray.
Lizzo’s Clip Exposes Adele’s Real Reaction At The Grammys
The clip captured Adele and Lizzo sharing a table at the event. Just as the host announced Harry Styles as the recipient of the Album of the Year award, the 34-year-old rapper took out her phone and began filming while Adele cheered him on excitedly as he expressed disbelief over his win. In her excitement, the Sweetest Devotion crooner made animated funny expressions, causing Lizzo to turn the camera her way.
However, as the cameras panned towards her, Adele asked Lizzo why she was filming her, adding that she should film Harry instead as he took to the podium. As she did so, she stood up briefly, perhaps to avoid Lizzo’s cameras, unaware that the Gammy producers had theirs set on her. The move ultimately became a groundbreaking headline as netizens dwelled on the brewing drama.
Many observed that both Adele and Lizzo looked unhappy after Harry’s Grammys win, having lost to him. Notably, Harry Styles beat out ten nominees, including Beyoncé (Renaissance), ABBA (Voyage), and Adele (30), to snag his coveted gramophone.
This is hardly the first time Adele was caught in a Grammys drama over the Album of the Year award. In 2017, the songstress slammed the Award show for handing her the win for 25, rather than awarding it to Beyonce’s Lemonade. Hence, when she appeared to walk away during Harry Styles’ acceptance speech on Sunday night, many believed it to be another protest against the Award body for favoring “a white Cis-Gender male” over Beyoncé.
