Illustration for article titled Adele Uses Her Acceptance Speech at the Brits to Very Publicly Support Kesha

While accepting her trophy for best female solo artist at the 2016 Brit Awards on Wednesday in London, Adele used her time on stage to state her support for Kesha.


“To come back after so long away and be so warmly received is really lovely, thank you so much,” said Adele. “And to all the other girls that are nominated, Thank you for letting me be in your company. You’re all incredible, you’re all amazing and it’s a privilege to be alongside you.”

After thanking her label and management “for embracing the fact that I’m a woman,” Adele referenced Kesha’s lawsuit against Dr. Luke in a major acknowledgement, adding, “I’d also like to take this moment to publicly support Kesha.”


Adele, the music industry’s highest and sometimes only album seller, thus joins the many other female artists (Lady Gaga, Kelly Clarkson, Lorde, JoJo, etc.) in this sentiment.
