Adele won the award for Album of the Year which was exciting for a number of people but upsetting to others. There has been a stir on the internet and on social media where people have been expressing their opinions on the matter. There have been many tweets on Twitter about how the award should have been presented to Beyonce for her Lemonade album.

Adele broke her Grammy in half to give to Beyonce because she thought that she deserved it. Adele added backstage, “I thought it was her year. What the f*** does she have to do to get an Album of the Year?”

“Beyonce’s album was so much better than Adele’s. She deserved to win Album of the Year,” said sophomore Alyssa Arao.

Even Adele herself admitted that she did not deserve the award. “I can’t possibly accept this award,” she said during her acceptance speech. She went on to speak about Beyoncé and she even spoke directly to her, telling her that her Lemonade album was “monumental.”

This has been quite a controversial topic with people across the world expressing their opinions on various different social media platforms.

Junior, Paige Barwick said that in her opinion, Adele deserved to win. “I’ve been a fan of hers for a really long time and I think that her album 25 was really deserving of the Album of the Year award,” said Barwick.
