Adele’s triumph at the Brits last night is splashed all over the internet. She won best song, best album, and best female artist. Officially however, she was just the best artist. The male and female categories are now genderless in order to include Sam Smith and other self-proclaimed non-binary musicians. But Adele’s acceptance speech for best artist perfectly summed up this nonsense:
‘I understand why the name of this award has changed but I really love being a woman and being female artist; I do! I do! I am really proud of us, I really really am.
