James Corden talks Adele Brit Award snub
James Corden talks Adele Brit Award snub

Comedian James Corden, who was the host of the 2012 Brit Awards earlier this year, has admitted that he believes the whole Adele snub was blown way out of proportion. James claims that Adele is fine with it and nobody is really that bothered about, so why did it get such huge coverage?

Corden explained, “She’s fine, I’ve never known such a non thing to become a thing, ever. I’ve done a lot of press [in the US] in the last few weeks and no-one’s mentioned it. I think they realised that someone didn’t get to say ‘Thank you’ long enough and maybe thought it wasn’t huge news.”
 
He added, “The truth is you want something to happen at the Brits. Let’s remember what the Brits used to be, where a story would be the lead singer of Chumbawamba throws ice over John Prescott.”
 
James continued, “Is [the Adele snub] really what we should be saying is a great showcase for our musical centre piece of the year? The show we did this year for the Brits, that was a good two-hour music show.”
 
James Corden is set to return for the fifth season of A League of Their Own, later this month.
Frank Skinner slams Adele

British funnyman Frank Skinner has spoken out about his disappointment in singer Adele for her actions during the whole Brit Award cut off farce. Frank claims that he feels Adele has come across as a bit of a hypocrite for her actions at the Brit Awards and believes that host James Corden actually did her a huge favour by stopping her during her speech.

Skinner explained, “I think James Corden did her a favour. With all that proud to be British stuff and saying she was waving the flag for us, I was not happy with it. I think she was a bit hypocritical.” Frank then went on to discuss how the Brit Awards used to actually be rather interesting and entertaining but that he feels they have now lost their way a bit.
 
He added, “The Brits used to be this massively controversial thing with people taking trousers down and someone throwing water over John Prescott. It has gone really downhill now.” It was reported at the weekend that Brit Award winner Adele has retaliated to being cut off, by cancelling plans to appear in an ITV special.

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.

James Corden presented the Brit Awards last night and was forced to cut off Adele during her second acceptance speech, by those in charge of the broadcast. James admitted that the whole think did make him feel rather upset and that he could not understand how the organisers allowed for Blur to play so long but not let Adele make her speech.

Corden explained, “I’m alright - I just feel bad about having to cut Adele off. I really don’t understand quite why I was made to, but it’s not a very nice way to end. I was having the best night of my life but then I had to cut Adele off before she had a chance to say thank you - she’s the biggest star in the world.”
 
He added, “I don’t quite understand what happened - but I’m quite upset about it. Blur playing for 11 minutes and she gets to just say ‘Thank you’ once. Up until then, I thought we’d really [been terrific].” After being cut off due to the lack of time, Adele then raised her middle finger in the direction of those in charge of the broadcast. Adele explained, “I flung the middle finger. That was for the suits at the Brit Awards.”

Harry added, “I think for us, we’re all at the age of 18/19/20, to get to do this, people of our age don’t get to do stuff like this very often and we’re just so grateful to all the fans who have put us where we are, the radio stations and everything else, were just ever so ever so grateful to have this massive opportunity and we’re just having fun and working hard.” The One Direction boys then joked that they would divide the award into pieces to share.

I’d like to thank my record company for letting me be the kind of artist I want to be.” Meanwhile, Ed Sheeran forgot to thank his friend Stuart Camp, who let him crash on his sofa for so long, as he collected his first award.
 
However, he made amends for it with his second gong, as he said, “He took me from a spotty, chubby ginger teenager to this. So thanks Stuart and… you need a new sofa.” There was some controversy at the Brit Awards, as Adele was cut short by James Corden during her second acceptance speech, much to the annoyance of the singer who then gave the middle finger to those in charge.
