Lily Allen Calls The Music Industry Sexist After Adele's Brits Speech Cut Short

 

23 February 2012

Outspoken pop star Lily Allen has jumped to the defense of fellow British singer Adele after her acceptance speech at the Brit Awards was cut short so that all male band Blur could take the stage.

Allen has taken to Twitter.com to say that she isn't surprised that Adele's speech was interrupted, as the music industry is still mainly male dominated.

In her Twitter post she wrote, "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."

Organisers behind the event, as well as Brits host James Cordon have since apologised to the singer- citing the event running over schedule as an excuse.

What do you think? Is Lily Allen right about the music industry's attitude towards women?
