Adele clarifies Grammys Chris Brown encounter: we ‘were complementing each other’

By Daniel S Levine,

A photo of Adele talking to Chris Brown at the Grammys made the rounds on the web after the show, with many speculating about what was said between the two stars. Some thought that she was scolding him about his behavior, but it turns out that they were just praising each other’s work.

The photo, shown at The Daily Mail, was taken after Frank Ocean beat Brown for Best Urban Contemporary Album. While the rest of the crowd of celebs gave Ocean a standing ovation, Brown remained seated, clapping. In the photo, Adele looks like she’s yelling at Brown and some thought she was giving him a piece of her mind.

But MTV News reports that the 21 singer, who won another Grammy for a live version of “Set Fire To The Rain,” took to Twitter to explain what they were saying.

“Chris Brown and I were complimenting each other in that photo actually!” she wrote.

Shortly after the show, Brown and Adele were snapped posing together and both were all smiles.

Brown was nominated for his album Fortune, but lost to Ocean’s Channel Orange.
