Adele swept the Grammy Awards on Sunday, taking home statuettes for the top prizes – album, record and song of the year – in a shock, history-making victory over Beyonce on a night marked by political statements and emotional tributes. Instead of sounded happy, Adele sounded almost sorry during her acceptance speech.

“My queen and my idol is Queen B. I adore you,” the British singer said to Beyonce, seated in the front row, as she accepted her award. “I can’t possibly accept this award, and I’m very humble and very grateful. But my artist of my life is Beyonce. This album for me, the ‘Lemonade’ album, was so monumental,” she added. A moment later, we saw her with a Grammy broken into two. Social media was quick to tag it as Grammys’ Mean Girls moment, saying that Adele wanted to share the award with Beyonce.
