Gordon in the morning: Superadele

I think we've all been waiting for someone to stand up to Chris Brown for a while now.

Adele has done it. At Grammys.

Gordon explains what happened:

When [Frank] Ocean pipped him to the Best Urban Contempary Album award, the whole audience rose to their feet to applaud him - except bad loser Brown, who stayed planted to his seat in a sulk.

As TV cameras focused in on his protest, Adele could be seen across the aisle, glaring in his direction.

And when the applause died down, the 24-year-old cornered him for a tense one-on-one.
Cameras didn't pick up Adele's choice of words - but judging by Brown's body language, it wasn't pretty.
Interesting that Gordon thinks Ocean "pipped" Brown to the award - obviously nobody knows what the judges came up with, but on every other measure, Ocean surely trounced Brown by a country mile.

Still: Go Adele. I think we should find the money to send Adele following Brown everywhere for a year, letting him know what we think.

She might have been suggesting he keep a lower-profile at the event - which marks the fourth anniversary of his arrest for assaulting Rihanna after a pre-Grammys party in 2009.
It's a small thing, but the anniversary of Brown being charged was Friday. The Grammys don't take place on the same date every year.

Hmmm. Are we sure we accept Gordon's interpretation of events as Gospel? As far as I can see this story seems to be the usual tabloid trick of making up a story to fit around two still photos. One showing Adele looking towards Brown as he sits and one showing her moving towards him with her mouth open.

Oddly, the one photo Gordon doesn't use is the one showing Adele and Brown smiling together for the cameras later. Odd that! http://i.imgur.com/9qs05ux.jpg
