Earlier this week, Adele made an obscene gesture at the Brit Awards: Simply put, she flipped the bird. Although she might have offended a few people (no doubt a bunch of squares), the sassy lass had a perfectly good reason to put that finger in the air like she just don't care: some moron cut her acceptance speech short.
Adele wasn't the only British pop star who made news this month by flipping the bird. A few weeks back, MIA threw up her middle finger right in the middle of her Super Bowl Halftime Show performance alongside Nicki Minaj and Madonna.
In both cases, we thought these ladies' actions were kinda awesome. Flipping the bird is technically obscene, but we consider it a relatively harmless gesture of rebellion that can mean a million different things to different people. No wonder rappers and singers are always posing for pictures with their middle fingers held high.
All the outcry over Adele and MIA inspired us to dig up 50 different pics of all types of musicians flipping the bird. Each finger has its own unique message, but they've all got one thing in common. It's not the index, pinkie, ring, or the thumb—we're talking about the one you put up when you just don't give a fuck...
